Jeet Ganguly (birth name Chandrajeet Ganguly) was born in a distinguished family with a rich cultural heritage in Kolkata; Jeet Gannguli was introduced into the world of music at a tender age of three. Jeet is trained in Indian classical music under the guidance of his guru and father- Kali Ganguliy, a well-known musician of Calcutta. On the other hand, his bond with Western Classical, jazz and rock was shaped and nurtured by the famous Jazz guru and Guitarist- Karlton Kitto. Absorbing the best of these two streams of music, Jeet today is a successful music director in Tollywood & Bollywood, scoring music for films, with the unbeatable combination of melody and new age sounds.
In Bengali film arena, the first break, which Jeet got, was with debutant director (of Mirakkel fame) Raj Chakraborty in his debut feature film “Chirodini Tumi Je Aamar”, which was produced by Venkatesh Films. This film emerged as a musical blockbuster and consolidated Jeet’s career prospects as a sole music composer & singer in Tollywood. Thereafter, there wasn’t any looking back for Jeet Ganguly and he composed Super hit tracks in films like “Challenge I & II, Paglu I & II, Saat Paake Bnadha, Amanush, Bojhe Na Se Bojhena, being one following right after the other.
Currently, Jeet Ganguly is almost an iconic figure in commercial film music of Tollywood. He introduced mainstream Bollywood singers like Zubein Garg, Akriti Kakkar, Mika Singh, Shreya Ghoshal, Mohit Chauhan and Kunal Ganjawala to contemporary Bengal filmy music. Especially Kunal Ganjawala and Jeet Ganguly combination worked superbly at the box office & that too repeatedly. The Tollywood Superstars like Jeet (actor) & Dev are big fans of Jeet’s compositions.
