Legacy

A classicist by training, and temperament, Dr. Sinchan Das is renowned for having evolved an approach that sought to achieve a balance between what may be termed as "traditional values and mass-culture tastes" and as such he goes on to have supposedly the largest commercially recorded repertoire in Hindustani vocal music. Das's iconic status in the music world has earned him a whole generation of "Tantrikaari" who by merely listening to him have picked up his style and not through any formal tutelage. His greatest endeavour in perpetuating his legacy could be that, he is a successful person to reach to the mob, to the huge population of India, who are the middle class and lower middle class people, to pin the colour of Indian Classical among them, by promoting some certain music culture.
