Debanjan was initiated to SARODE, at a tender age of 5 years, on 15 August, 1991 under the guidance of Late Ustad Dhyanesh Khan. After his sad demise, Debanjan became a discple of his elder brother, the Sarod maestro Ustad Aashish Khan and his sister Late Vidushi Ameena Perera of the celebrated Maihar Senia Gharana.
The most sacred moment of his musical journey came at the age of 7, when Guru Ustad Aashish Khan accepted him as his "Ganda Bandh" disciple on the auspicious day of Saraswati Puja. His learning has also been enriched through his participation in various workshops conducted by the Legendary Swarsamrat Late Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, the doyen of the Maihar Senia Gharana.
With the esoteric teachings from the Great Gurus of this school of music in his repertoire, Debanjan is definitely one of the torch bearers of the Maihar Senia Gharana.
