Sukhdev Mishra is a renowned violin player from the city of Varanasi. Raised in the purest tradition of Banaras Gharana (Varanasi style) in a very old musical family, Sukhdev learned music through the guidance of his father the late Pandit Narayan Das Mishra, a very famous sarangi player of Varanasi. He played on stage since the age of 6. He is the disciple Sangeet Prabhakar, teacher at the Banaras Hindu University, who taught him singing too. Sukhdev Mishra had many rewards, recorded for the main radio stations of India. He played concerts in London, Berlin, Wien, Brussels, and in France in Toulouse and Cahors.
