Marina Alam

Marina Alam Marina Ahmad Alam was born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, and has been training in Indian Classical music since the age of four. In Bangladesh she studied under the tutelage of Ustad Phul Mohammed Khan and Shri Bari Majumdar. She continued her training at Dhaka Music College and then studied at Gandharva Maha Vidyalaya in New Delhi, India. Marina is a senior disciple of Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj, receiving training in the Mewati Gharana for over two decades. She regularly accompanies Pandit Jasraj, performing alongside him worldwide. Marina is currently also training under the guidance of Ms. Manik Bhide in the Jaipur Gharana. Marina has a wide repertoire and also performs thumris, ghazals, and bhajans. She has recently been experimenting with more contemporary styles such as jazz-fusion, which uniquely combines the depth of the Indian classical style with the free-flowing motion of jazz. She currently resides in New York and teaches several students across the Tri-State area.
