  1. Short but very sweet article on today’s prominent singer Pt. Ulhas Kashalkar. Just wanted to make some addition is that he also represents Agra gharana, apart from Gwalior & Jaipur. He took training from Pt. Ram Marathe & Pt. Gajananbua Joshi. Both were disciples of Pt. Jagannathbua Purohit & Ut. Vilayat Hussain Khan respectively-Agra Gharana.

    I am very happy to see this site. It is a great contribution to Hindustani Classical Music. My salute to the owners and contributors.
