About Us

Hemen & Co – The Divine JourneyThe Company was started around 1947 by the Late Hemen Chandra Sen a beloved apprentice of the late Baba Allauddin Khan of Maihar Gharana and also that of the late Ustad Ayet Ali Khan, the father of Ustad Bahadur Khan. History goes that one day while learning the Sitar with Ustad Allauddin Khan Hemen ji’s Sitar broke. But, Hemen ji all by himself instantaneously fixed the sitar without any delay and made it as good as new. His acumen and skills really impressed the group of stalwarts present there like Ustad Allauddin Khan, Ustad Ayet Ali Khan, Ustad Ali Akbar Khan and including Ustad Ravi Shankar as well. Following this, one fine day Ustad Allauddin Khan told Hemen ji to repair his damaged Sarods and set them back to working order. Since then began the illustrious and glorious journey. Ustad Allauddin Khan gave all his damaged Maihar instruments to Hemen ji and the latter started working on them relentlessly. From that point onwards Hemen ji started taking care of Indian musical instruments. He was attended by masters and geniuses then onwards like Ustad Ali Akbar Khan, Ustad Ravi Shankar, Pandit Nikhil Banerjee and Annapurna Devi.
