About the Artists
Bhuvanesh Komkali
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.
