Pushkar Lele

Hindustani classical vocalist

Pushkar Lele
   Biography
A rigorous study of more than two decades with all these renowned and able Gurus has enriched him with a rich fund of knowledge. Pushkar's gayaki has evolved from an intense and deep study of the musical ideology of Pt Kumar Gandharva. Guided by his Guru Pt. Vijay Sardeshmukh and Pt. Satyasheel Deshpande on this path, Pushkar has showcased his deep understanding of the spirituality and the musical intricacies of this gayaki. Kumarji’s style is not something that can be absorbed by mere imitation. One has to master the thought process that goes behind singing and grammar of a Raga, apart from some unique ornamentation. To the listeners, Pushkar’s music not only leaves a soothing effect for the ears but is also a visual treat. Unlike (the very common) singers who follow the traditional and stereotyped rule of concentrating only on the strict parameters of a composition, he comes across as a storyteller and communicator while he sings. His ability to engage the audience by direct eye contact, perfect diction, romancing with the poetry, appropriate emphasis on words and superb timing is mind-boggling! Today, he is one of the rarest artistes who can give a true feel of Kumarji’s tradition. A highly spiritual person, Pushkar has emerged today as an international artiste whose style reflects an aesthetic blend of contemplation in music and technical excellence. A cerebral musician that Pushkar is, his maturity and understanding far exceeds his age. His highly intellectual and emotional insight into his music makes him a class apart. Gifted with a sweet and sonorous voice seasoned with years of practice, a bright future no doubt awaits Pushkar.
