Biography

Active: 1960s-2000s
Country Of origin: India

Born in February 1922 in Gadag in the present-day Indian state of Karnataka, Bhimsen Joshi is one of the truly matchless male vocalists of Hindustani music: his performances are always a source of joy. From early in his life he was driven by music, a drive which led him to leave home quite young. After many adventures he settled down studying with Sawai Gandharva of the Kirana gharana and one of the foremost students of Abdul Karim Khan. Bhimsen Joshi has a rich and resonant voice which, while utterly classical in tone, has a warm, lived-in quality. ~ Ken Hunt~ Rovi
