Rajendra Kandalgaonkar / Hindustani Vocal Music
A Morning Raaga Concert of Hindustani Vocal Music by Shri Rajendra Kandalgaonkar with Shri Rajiv Tambe on the Harmonium and Shri Mohan Parasnis on the Tabla.
Creative Innovation in Hindustani Classical Music has been the key to Rajendra Kandalgaonkar's growth as an artist. Moving into the depths of the Raga, he understands and responds to the emotional environment and nature of the Raga. As he evokes the 'alaap' of the raga, he builds a rapport with his audiences. With original thought in 'layakari' and 'taans', he perfo rms, using his extensive experience in stage performances, and delivers, both, the expected and the unexpected. This attributes his singing, giving it a distinct and very attractive flavor.Rajendra Kandalgaonkar has been trained by some of the most renowned Gurus. At the young age of 7, he began his basic training in vocal music from Pandit Vishnu A. Ghag, of the Gwalior Gharana. This spanned an intensive 18 years of training, from 1967 to '84. He then moved on, since 1980, to train under none other than the maestro of Indian Vocal Classical himself, Pandit Bhimsen Joshi of the Kirana Gharana. He has performed at many well known concerts all over India, along with regular performances on Doordarshan ( Indian television ) and AIR (All India Radio) He has also been conferred the highest 'A' grade for Indian Vocal Music by AIR and Natya Sangeet (Marathi Stage Music).
