Amit Mishra is an exponent of the Benaras Gharana of Hindustani Classical Music. He has learned classical vocals. He also developed a keen interest in Tabla when he started learning it under the guidance of his father, Pt. Kishor Kumar Mishra. As he began to devote himself entirely to playing the Tabla, he was both inspired and blessed by his maternal grandfather, the late Tabla Maestro Pt. Samta Prasad Mishra. He then received advanced instruction from his Guru (teacher), the internationally-acclaimed, late Pt. Sharda Sahai (a direct descendant of Pt. Ram Sahai, the founder of the Banaras Gharana).
Amit has accompanied some of the finest Indian classical music artists such as Vidushi Girija Devi, Pt. Birju Maharaj, Sitara Devi, Vidushi Sonal Mansingh, Pt. Ajay Pohankar, Pt. Channu Lal Mishra, Sunaina Hajarilal. He has toured in India, France, Japan, Belgium, the USA, Columbia, Singapore, Thailand, Maleshiya, Germany, Italy, Hungary, Switzerland, Spain, the UK, Sri Lanka, Peru, Argentina, Holland, Thailand, Nepal, and Hong Kong for concerts, courses and collaboration with musicians.
