Part of a 300-year old lineage of khyal singing of the Banaras gharana, the Mishra brothers have been performing to audiences all over Indian and the world for many years, and have so far released over 20 music albums in genres ranging from classical Khayal gayaki, to semi-classical tappa and bhajans.

They started performing while they were still in their teens.
