ORIENTAL MUSIKRAFT was founded in a suburb of Calcutta by Dulal Chandra Kanji, a former assistant of Hemen & Co. Dulal specialized in fine sarods in Hemen's style. Generally, his instruments do not quite achieve the high standards of Hemen. They are more economical though and are perfectly convincing for advanced requirements. Dulal’s son Naba Kumar Kanji is running the business today. Since the turn of the millennium, he is putting much effort in further improving his quality standards by co-operating with professional musicians. Sarods made by Oriental Musikraft are played e.g. by Buddhadev Dasgupta.
