The much decorated doyen of the ‘Kirana’ gharana of Hindustani Music, Pandit Bhimsen Gururaj Joshi was born in Gadag district of Karnataka. His grandfather was a ‘kirtankar’ of repute, which is perhaps why he was always drawn to music. At the age of eleven, he enrolled as a student under Pandit Sawai Gandharva, a disciple of the original founders of the Kirana Ghanara himself. In fact, renowned vocalist Gangubai Hangal was a co-student with him under Pandit Gandharva.
