Classical Bhajan and Ghazal Singer: Sushant Sinha

Today is Erei (Friday)

When I came to know about Sushant Sinha, a Bishnupriya Manipuri Classical Bhajan and Ghazal singer and heard his songs in one of his live performance at Guwahati, Assam; I completely got swayed with his melodious voice which was full of devotion and in-depth knowledge of the classical music. After knowing about his past performances and experiences in the field of singing, it came to me that Sushant Sinha’s talent needs to be projected and promoted. He is a precious asset for our community and his successes and contributions must be shared amongst us. His singing will grow on the music lovers - the more we listen to him, the more we will like his voice and fall in love.

It is a great pleasure for me that I got the opportunity to create an exclusive blog/site especially with the aim to promote and expose the talent of an artist and introduce him to everyone online on the Internet. I have made this effort to give a brief introduction of Sushant Sinha, a Bishnupriya Manipuri Classical Bhajan and Ghazal singer and highlighted his notable performances through this exclusive blog. All the information given in this site is based on the information provided by Sushant himself to me in a personal interview.

Born on January 7, 1970, Sushant Sinha, a Classical Bhajan and Ghazal Singer, is a disciple of renowned "Bhajan Samraat" Anup Jalota. He is also known as "Chote Anup" or "Jr. Anup Jalota" for adopting the style of singing (gayaki) of Anup Jalota, touching the heart of music lovers by his melodious and sweet voice. He belongs to the Bishnupriya Manipuri community and was born in the village Abhanga (in Kamalpur) in the Dhalai District of Tripura. Born to father Sumanta Sinha and mother Smt. Radhika Sinha, he has inherited his family's tradition of singing where his father and grandfather were Bishnupriya Manipuri Singers known as "ISALPA" well known to the Bishnupriya Manipuri society for their contribution to keep alive the historic singing style and culture of Bishnupriya Manipuri.

Sushant Sinha is the "First Bishnupriya Manipuri Classical Bhajan and Ghazal Singer" singing Bhajans and Ghazals in Hindi, Bishnupriya Manipuri and Bengali languages.

At the age of 12, Sushant started singing by imitating songs from the Bhajans of Shri Anup Jalota like Bhajan Ganga, Bhajan Sandhyas etc. He developed his passion for singing and put his heart and soul in learning and singing Bhajans and Ghazals following the singing style of Anup Jalota.

According to Sushant, Anup Jalota was his inspiring idol and Sangeet Guruji (mentor) or guide though he never met him at his tender age. Though he did not receive any formal training in Vocal, from the age of 16 years he started performing Bhajans Sandhyas, Ghazals, Thumris etc sung by Jalota and others.

In this blog apart from his introduction, I have uploaded and list out some of his recorded audios of Bhajans and other songs. I will try to add more of his various performances and recordings whenever they are available with me. I am hoping to make it the most exhaustive & complete collection of his Bhajans, Ghazals, Thumris & other modern songs sung by him.

I request the readers here to visit the blog and give their valuable comments and suggestions.

I wish Sushant Sinha all the best in life, achieve the ultimate success he deserves and make everyone able to hear his voice with more beautiful songs in future.

I heartily thank Sushant for his cooperation, sharing of information about him and permitting to publish the information about him and his audios on the site.


  1. Bhajan singer Sushant deserves accolades.I m a great fan of him n even my wife too.In his personal inerview,he could have given little more of Mumbai,which have nursed him for many years.Apart from this,it would have been better, if he could have given some more of his beig known as Bhajan singer in our Bishnupriya Manipuri community.
    It says, no solo life performance could be given by an artist unless he is known to the audience.

  2. To pratibha,
    the article you have wrote is a encouraging one to mr. Sushant Sinha the Bhajan Singer.
    he is a very talented singer in terms of Bhajan and in one word we can say Jr. Anoop Jhalota for India.
    Till date i have not seen any one singing in the style of Bhajan Samrat Anoop Jhalota.

    With this I request every body of our community to come forward for the uplift of the talent of singer Sushant Sinha.
