Ajoy Chakrabarty (born 25 December 1952) is an Indian Hindustani classical vocalist. Chakrabarty was born in Kolkata, West Bengal to Ajit Chakraborty. He moved to India from his homeland, Mymensingh of Bangladesh during the partition and raised two sons in Shyamnagar. His younger brother, Sanjay Chakraborty is a lyricist and composer. He graduated top of his class in music, both in B.A and M.A from the prestigious Rabindra Bharati University in Kolkata and joined the ITC Sangeet Research Academy in 1977. His father was his first Guru. He then studied with Pannalal Samanta, Kanaidas Baigari and Jnan Prakash Ghosh. Besides that, he had learnt from several other maestros like Latafat Hussain Khan, Nibruttibua Sarnaik, Hirabai Barodekar and in Carnatic styles from M. Balamuralikrishna, that kept enriching his musical expression and repertoire. Despite having such pure classical "taleem" in the Khyal genre, he also renders lighter forms such as Thumri, Tappa, Geet, Bhajan, Kirtan, Folk, Film/Non-Film and modern songs, in several different languages. He has received several prestigious awards including the Padma Shri (2011), Sangeet Natak Akademi (Delhi, 1999–2000), Kumar Gandharva (National Award, 1993) and the Best Male Playback Singer (Bengali Film "Chhandaneer" 1990) ("For bringing the rare depth of emotion, adorned by his command on the classical idiom") and National Tansen Samman 2015 - by the Chief Minister of Madhya Pradesh,. He has also received felicitations from both the former and present Chief Ministers of his own State, West Bengal. In 2012, Chief Minister of West Bengal, Mamata Banerjee conferred him the Maha Sangeet Samman and the Banga Bibhushan, two of the State’s highest awards. In 2015 he has received Guru Jnan Prakash Ghosh Lifetime Achievement Award. He also was awarded honorary citizenship in   New Orleans, after performing with jazz musicians at Preservation Hall, the birthplace of jazz music. Although considered a scion and doyen of the Patiala-Kasur Gharana (style), primarily representing Bade Ghulam Ali Khan and Barkat Ali Khan sahibs gayaki (singing style), he can portray features of other major gharanas such as Indore, Delhi, Jaipur, Gwalior, Agra, Kirana, Rampur and even Carnatic music of South India. He is a recipient of the Padma Shri (2011) and Sangeet Natak Akademi Award (Delhi, 1999-2000) and the National Film Award for Best Male Playback Singer in 1989- in Bengali Film "Chhandaneer" 1989. He was the first Indian classical vocalist to be invited by Pakistan and China and by BBC for their Golden Jubilee Celebration of India’s Independence. Thus far, Chakrabarty has recorded over 100 albums, including pure classical and various other genres such as thumri, dadra, bhajans and Bengali songs. He has performed in some of the most prestigious venues around the world such as Carnegie Hall, The Kennedy Center, New Orleans Jazz Preservation Hall in the US, the Royal Albert hall and Queen Elizabeth Hall in the UK, and Theatre de la Ville in France. Inspired by the ideals of his Guru Jnan Prakash Ghosh, Chakrabarty founded Shrutinandan, a school of music.
