Gauri Pathare

A glittering gem in the crown of Indian Classical Music, Gauri Pathare's interest in Hindustani Classical Music aroused by listening to her mother, Dr. Vidya Damle, a disciple of Padmashri Pt. Jitendra Abhisheki. Under the watchful eye and loving guidance of her Gurus, her mother Dr. Vidya Damle and then Pt. Gangadharbuwa Pimpalkhare from the Kirana Gharana, Gauri delved deep into the spiritual essence of Indian Classical Music to blossom into a musical genius. She later on followed her mother's footsteps by receiving talim for 5 years from Pt. Jitendra Abhisheki.

Gauri started receiving training from eminent vocalist, Pandita Padmatai Talwalkar, in 1994. This training blended in her the Gayaki of Jaipur and Gwalior Gharana. Vocalist of mesmerizing melodies, Gauri has always enchanted her audience with her enthralling performances. Her voice is her forte, which became polished under the guidance and training of Ustad Sayeedudin Dagarji, who taught her voice culture techniques. In addition to numerous inter-college and inter-university trophies, Gauri has also won the All India Radio competition at national level. Her various accolades include Smt.
