This Kolkata-born girl sings Bulgarian folk songs, world music and classic jazz internationally, and Bollywood songs (Paas Aaya Kyun from Aggar) in Mumbai. Sharmistha Chatterjee also fronts Pakistani group Mekaal Hasan Band with whom she performed at Coke Studio Pakistan in 2015. In fact, she’s the first Indian singer to do so.




"I went to Pakistan with Gino Banks and Sheldon D’Silva," she says. The session featured Sayon and Kinaray from their third studio album, Andholan. It featured the new Indo-Pak line-up for the first time. Mekaal Hasan and Mohammad Ahsan Papu, the founding members, reprised their roles as lead guitarist and flautist, respectively. Agha Ibrahim Akram was on the drums, and Gino and Sheldon joined in for live performances.
