Shyamala Bhave

Ubhaya Gana Vidushi Dr. Shyamala G Bhave

Ubhaya Gana Vidushi Dr. Shyamala G Bhave is the talented daughter of the illustrious artist couple Acarya Pandit Goving Vithal Bhave, and Vidushi Lakshmi Bhave. Hailing from a family steeped in music, culture, and tradition, music came naturally to Shyamalaji. As a child prodigy, she sang her first concert when she was just six years old. Gifted with a mellifluous voice and an impeccable sense of "sur" and "laya", she mastered the subtle micro tones that characterize classical music. One of the front line performers of Gwalior gharana style of Hindustani music in its purest form, the sublime emotions in her renditions evoke the mood and feeling of the "Raag", touching the soul of the listener.

Shyamalaji is equally at ease revealing her command over the different idioms and nuances that characterize the Carnatic style of Classical music. Her potential was recognized and appreciated very early in her music career by the celebrated Sir M Visveswaraya who conferred upon her the title "Ubhaya Gana Vidushi", a title that Shayamalaji has worn with pride ever since. She is credited with the conceptualization and perpetuation of "Dakshinottaram", a unique technique of "Ubhayagaan" concert wherein she presents a single-artist vocal Carnatic and Hindustani jugalbandi.
