Ajoy Chakrabarty is one of the finest vocalists in India. He was born in Kolkata, Bengal to Ajit Chakrabarty. He moved to India from his homeland, Bangladesh during the partition and raised his two sons in Shyamnagar. His younger brother, Sanjay Chakrabarty is a noted composer and music therapist.

At the age of three, he began learning music from his father Ajit Chakrabarty. He then learnt from Pannalal Samanta and Kanai Das Bairagi and later became a student of PadmaBhushan Pandit JnanPrakash Ghosh. In 1969, his training took a decisive turn as he became a disciple of Ustad Munawar Ali Khan, son of Ustad Bade Ghulam Ali Khan, the legendary maestro of the Patiala-Kasur gharana. He is notable for imagination and sensitivity to lyrics, coupled with his uncanny sense of rhythm.

Ajoy Chakrabarty was Guru for Hindustani vocal music at ITC SRA, Kolkata and later he established his own music school, Shruti Nandan. His daughter, Kaushiki Chakrabarty is also an established singer.
