Deo Narain Mishra from Varanasi comes
from a family of extremely talented
musicians .
His grandfather Late Pt. Shrichandra Mishra
ji (Guru of Padmavibhushan Vidushi Girija
Devi ji) and Maternal Grandfather
“Thumari Samrat” Pt. Mahadev Prasad Mishra ji were
two renowned Singers of their time.
Both his parents are also singers and so he
had an open way to go into the learning of
Vocals and follow up with his family’s
traditional style of singing .
But due to his interest towards drums, his parents
decided to train him as a Tabla Player.

He was primarily being trained by his mother Smt.
Meena Mishra, and later with growing age and
understanding of details, he began a new journey
of Learning of Traditional Banaras Baaj from respected
Pt. Pooran Maharaj Ji who is the
Grandson of the great
“Vadya Shiromani” Pt. Kanthe Maharaj Ji and son of
Padmavibhushan Pt. Kishan Maharaj Ji.
The Ancestors in Deo’s family were basically Tabla
Players and he belongs to
the lineage of “Pt. Sharan ji”, who was among the 5
Frontier disciples of Pt. Ram Sahai ji (the
“pravartak” of the Banaras Gharana) .
Ultimately Tabla came back into the family by the
means of Respected Guruji Pt. Pooran Maharaj Ji.
He has attained training of Accompaniment as well as
performing Solo in different Taals (Beats) and has
worked finely on the Laykaari as well as Nikaas (the
way a particular note is played) of the Benaras Baaj.
Training with the Blessings and highly experienced
teaching of Pt. Pooran Maharaj Ji, Deo has also
attained love and appreciation from seniors of the
Gharana and presented his progress amongst them time
to time .

Deo has appeared in several music Festivals
and baithaks along with his Guruji as well as
Individually, both as an accompanist as well as a
soloist .

Getting an opportunity to accompany renowned artists
has itself been a token of receiving blessings from them
and a motivation for doing better in coming future.A few of platforms where he has got an opportunity to present himself are as
follows :

2. Ganga Mahotsav

As a result of Participation in Competitions, Deo has been a Winner of “Gold” at
Sangeet Natak Akademi’s Yearly Music Competitions in both sub-senior as well
as Senior Caategories simultaneously in 2019 and 2020 .

Though life is forever a huge journey and learning never ends at any age, Deo
has proven that hard work and dedication never goes in vein.
Being a person with music in his family, he has also completed a graduation
degree in Engineering (CSE) and presently he is learning minute details of Tabla
from his Guruji in Varanasi, meanwhile completing his higher education in Music .
