About the Artists
Born into a rich legacy of music,
Bhuvanesh Mukul Komkali was destined to be a singer. Surrounded by the sound of
an incomparable vocalist tradition since conception, Bhuvanesh grew up with the
rhythms and shifting weight of original compositions imbuing hi senses. Even if
he cared not to listen, the pulse could
not be ignored because it was in his blood.
Grandson of Pandit Kumar
Gandharva, son of Mukul Shivputra, Bhuvanesh’s musical journey began, unbeknownst
to him, in infancy. Bhuvanesh’s earliest memories are filled with the sounds of
early morning practice, performances and recordings. An amazing repertoire made
its way into the very cells of his being, even as he graduated from college
with a commerce degree.
Bhuvanesh’s musical quest
continues today under the tutelage of Smt. Vasundhara Komkali and Shri Madhup
Mudgal. Analytical environment and meditating over the different aspects of
classical music boosted energy to bloom and glow his artistic personality.
Learning the rudiments of vocal
music under such accomplished teachers has deepened Bhuvanesh’s appreciation
for his forefather’s talents and renewed his commitment to preserve and extend
his heritage. By following the values and philosophy established by Pandit
Kumar Gandharva, Bhuvanesh proves his commitment and persistence for music
through his singing.
He is currently engaged in
enriching the archives of Pandit Kumar
Gandharva’s music using the latest in digital technology. Bhuvanesh has
composed music for Hindi feature film ‘Devi Ahilya’. Bhuvanesh has performed
successfully in almost all over India in reputed music festivals and has been
highly appreciated by the well versed audience.
