Though only in his late 20s, Bhubaneswar-based acclaimed harmonium player Ajaya Dash has earned laurels to Odisha and for himself. Winner of Gold Medal at the 15th National Youth Festival, he is probably the only harmonium player from Odisha to accompany stalwarts such as Manna Dey, Anup Jalota, Kavita Krishnamurthi, Hariharan, Udit Narayan, Md. Aziz, Sonu Nigam, Vinod Rathore and Shreya Ghosal. And he continues to be a favourite accompanist and music arranger for almost all vocalists and singers of Odisha.
