My name is Pankaj Somodder (Diksa name : Pankaj Nava Krishna Das). I was born in Maharastra. My Gurudev is Srila Jayapataka Swami. We are 3 generations musicians. I learnt music from my grandparents and my mother.
Later on I studied professional music classes from Sri Haridas Pae Mahasay for 10 years. In the initial stage of life I used to do many professional stage programs, by which I earned little amount of money for living. After sometime I felt dissatisfied by such bussiness with music, and I decided to go to Sri Vridavan Dhama. There I started giving music classes. My son Satyananda learnt violin in lucknow, UP. After completing his studies he joined me in my music classes in Vridavan. My students requested me to open a music instruments shop. We sell musical instruments all over the world.
