Benáresz leghíresebb harmónium játékosait felmutató családban született. Édesapja Pt. Sohan Lal Mishra, nagybátyja Pt. Mohan Lal Mishra, mindketten világhírű zenészek a maguk hangszerén. Sumit a fiatal generáció legnagyobb tehetsége, aki gyakorlatilag minden elismert énekest kísért már hangszerén.
Nihar Mehta comes from one of the foremost and respected families of philosophers and musicians of Ahmedabad. They are also famous for “SAPTAC” – a music school and related festival – founded by the family in 1980. As Nihar was growing up constantly surrounded by music, it became a second nature to him and right from the age of 12 he started learning Tabla from his uncle Nandan Mehta and Pt Puran Maharaj. Nihar was very inspired by his dada Guru Pt. Kishan Maharaji.
