Uday Bhawalkar is a leading dhrupad singer of the Dagar bani
(school/style). he performs extensively in Asia, Europe, North America,
and has colaborated with dancers and film makers, and has several
albums in print.
While studying Indian classical music as a boy in Ujjain, Uday longed
to be a classical singer, and at last his dream began to unfold at 15
when he was selected to study at the Dhrupad Kendra in Bhopal. By the
age of 18, he had begun to realise the depths and potential of this
genre of music and since that time, he has devoted himself to
developing the dhrupad genre – it has become his career and his life’s
Uday then lived and studied dhrupad for 12 years in the residences of
his gurus, Ustad Zia Fariduddin Dagar and the rudra vina maestro Ustad
Zia Mohiuddin Dagar in Bhopal and Mumbai. His long training with his
gurus in the rigorous practice of dhrupad helped Uday to appreciate the
subtle nuances and majesty of this music.
