Mita Nag is a daughter of veteran sitarist Pandit Manilal Nag and grand daughter of Sangeet Acharya Gokul Nag. She belongs to the Vishnupur Gharana of Bengal. In terms of lineage, Mita is the sixth generation sitar player in her family, the tradition having begun with her fore fathers.
Mita was initiated into music at the tender age of four. She had shown rather early gestures of her love for music. Toddling with her tiny sitar Mita began her early training under the guidance of her mother who was also a disciple of Gokul Nag. Her grandfather's encouragement and instructions through singing had much influence on her early reception of music, most noticeably, associating the instrument with song. Her tutelage under her father started at the age of six. Mita appeared for her debut performance at the age of ten years, the year 1979 being observed as the International Year of the Child. The same year Mita won the Junior National Talent Search Award of the Govt .of India.
Mita has performed in a number of concerts, solo as well as duet recitals with her father in major cities of India and in many cities of the US, Canada, Japan and Europe. She was awarded the Junior Fellowship Award by the Human Resource Development, Govt of India for her research project on Vishnupur Gharana.
