Deben Bhattacharya (December 12, 1921, Varanasi, India – July 23, 2001, Paris, France) was a Bengali ethnomusicologist, radio and record producer. Bhattacharya produced over 100 records, 23 films and published more than a dozen books mostly under the auspices of UNESCO. Settled in Paris since 1954, his family gave his huge sound archive to Bibliothèque Nationale De France. Producer (among others) of The Living Tradition series. Music From The Middle East. Religions Of India (Album).

Deben Bhattacharya (1921–2001) was a Bengali radio producer, record producer, ethnomusicologist, anthropologist, documentary filmmaker, photographer, translator, poet, writer, broadcaster, lecturer, and folk music consultant. He produced over 100 records, 23 films and published more than a dozen books in his lifetime and much of his work was carried out under the auspices of UNESCO.

An album culled from the recordings made by the late ethnomusicologist Deben Bhattacharya during a trip to Uzbekistan in 1970, while it was still under Soviet rule. Luckily for the cultural aspects of the old central Asian power, the Soviet hold on culture was relatively weak in Uzbekistan, so much of the culture survived decently. Instrumentation hails from the full area of influence of the Silk Road routes, with the bulk of the instruments having Persian origin (but occasionally Chinese- or Indian-based names) and others coming from Russia in the north, or locally. The songs take one of two directions vocally: the first being a male chorus similar in many ways to the Bosnian Muslim chant groups, and the second being a contemporary solo form with orchestral accompaniment, popular in the Middle East.

Arundhati Bhattacharya is a retired Indian banker and former Chairman of the State Bank of India. She is the first woman to be the Chairman of State Bank of India. In 2016, she was listed as the 25th most powerful woman in the world by Forbes.

Deben Bhattacharya (1921–2001) was a field recordist, poet, filmmaker, musicologist and amateur ethnomusicologist, based in Calcutta and Paris. Highly influential, it would not be too bold a stretch to say that his work shaped how we listen to the world: he produced a vast number of LPs, CDs, videos and radio shows of traditional music from India, Asia, Africa, the Middle East, and Europe from 1953 until his death in 2001.

Deben Bhattacharya was a Bengali radio producer, record producer, ethnomusicologist, anthropologist, documentary filmmaker . This led to a trip through the Middle East, recording music in every country, as well as other projects.
