Jeet Gannguli (born Chandrajeet Ganguly, Bengali: চন্দ্রজিৎ গাঙ্গুলী), popularly known as Jeet,[1] is a music composer and singer of Bengali and Hindi movies.[2] Gannguli was initiated into the world of music at the age of three. He was a student of Baranagore Ramakrishna Mission Ashrama High School from where he completed his schooling. Later he graduated from the University of Calcutta. He is trained in Indian classical music under the guidance of his father Kali Ganguly and his pisima (father's sister) Shibani Roychowdhury. He studied western classical music, jazz and rock with jazz guitarist Carlton Kitto. Gannguli is a music director in Bollywood, scoring music for films.[3]

Gannguli got his first break when Sanjay Gadhvi was signed on to direct Tere Liye and he, in turn, signed on his friends Jeet Gannguli and Pritam as music composers. In 2002 Yash Raj Films signed Gadhvi up to direct Mere Yaar Ki Shaadi Hai, for which the Gannguli-Pritam duo composed the music.[4]

After the duo parted ways, Jeet has started scoring music for Hindi and Bengali films, TV serials and jingles.[5][6] Jeet Ganguly has also composed music for a single track sung by well known singer In Hindi, Bengali.
