About Rituparna

Rituparna moved to Austin, Texas from Delhi, India in 2017.

Rituparna has learnt Indian music from a very early age in a traditional Indian Music Gharana from “Mahishadal Rajbaari” of West Bengal.

She has participated and won many accolades and prizes in music competitions in school (near Kolkata) and later in college and professional lives.

Rituparna did her studies in the famous Visva Bharati University, Santiniketan – the abode of Guru Rabindranath Tagore. This further accentuated her tryst with Bengali and Indian culture and music, and is reflected in many of her performances. In fact, her recent music album is a collection of melodious Tagore songs and rearranged by Rituparna in her own unique style. This album is named “Ritu’r Robi” and is commercially available in music stores in India.

In Delhi, Rituparna performed in various music events across venues like Shri Ram Bharatiya Kala Kendra, Delhi Islamic Center, India Habitat Center, Muktodhara, Cyber Hub, Sri Ram Center of Performing Arts to name a few prominent ones. Rituparna is the lead vocalist of the band “Roots” which specializes in Indian Folk songs from different states. Rituparna formed a band of her own named “Wrong Pencil” and performed in Delhi and other cities. Through these endeavors, she diversified in Hindustani music, mainly in the Folk and Semi Classical genres.

Although her first love is music, Rituparna is an established stage actor. She was the lead actor of a Bengali play “Shesh Rokkha”, a modern adaptation of Tagore’s play. This play was staged several times in cities across India – Delhi’s Kamani Auditorium to Kolkata’s Academy of Fine Arts. 

Recently she featured in a Bengali movie named “Dhatri” as the lead actor. The movie is not commercially released yet, and was screened at Kolkata’s Nandan and Delhi’s Muktodhara in Oct-Dec 2018.
