See What Bay Area artists want to say about Anand Bhate

A very versatile singer who sings khayal,thumri, natyageet and abhang with equal ease. Really enjoyed his singing in the film "Bal Gandharva" for which he also received the National Award for best male playback singer.
Look forward to attending Shri Anand Bhate's concert accompanied by Bharat Kamat on tabla andSuyog Kundalkar on the harmonium organized by Swara Sudha.

Jayanti Sahasrabuddhe
Vocalist

We all being in silicon valley as a technocrat.....feels very proud about Shri Anand Bhate, as he himself being an Engineer and well versed dedicated Vocalist from Kirana gharana....... continued the great tradition from none the grate Late Pt.Bhimsen Joshi.

I would strongly recommend bay area listeners to attend the concert to feel the vibration and get energized 
Satish Tare
Tabla Guru

"Anand Bhate is a truly gifted singer, who is further enhancing the rich tradition of Kirana Gharana music. His mastery of Naatya-sangeet gives a uniquely subtle, emotive quality to his classical renditions. With all his virtuosity and tayyari, his focus is always on Raga aesthetics. It has always been a pleasure to listen to his Khayal gayaki as well as his Naatya-sangeet. His delightful persona reflects in his music, making it a true pleasure to listen to, in fact I know him from school days. Just received an email from him about his visit."
Prasad Jogalekar
Sitarist

"One of the most versatile singers! Not only trained in classical music, but light music as well as Natya Sangeet. While in India, I saw Sangeet Saubhadra in which Anand-ji played the lead role of Krishna. Excellent production, acting and singing! Don't miss this chance to see him in action"
Vivek Datar
Harmonium Guru and Musicologist   

I still remember being fascinated and inspired by those beautiful naaTya sangeet renderings by Anand gandharva.. a merely 12 year old young boy from Pune..in around 1983/84.I have been lucky to be knowing him further later, and, in my recent visits to India, to have listened to his 'abhangs', naaTyageets  and Hindustani classical music with great command and authority! With a tradition of music running in the family, having got the training from various authoritative gurus including the Immortal  Swar-Bhaskar Bharat-ratna Pandit Bhimsen Joshi himself, Anand is now one of the bright stars of the hindustani classical vocal and marathi music horizon! The simplicity and rich culture in his character reflects in his music and gives the audience an experience to cherish.  We have the opportunity to listen to him second time! Not to be missed.
