first ‘Guru’ in Chalisgaon, Late Pandit Purushottam Antapurkar. After seven-years of training, he pursued his passion for music with the iconic Padma Vibhushan Pandit Hariprasad Chaurasia. Practicing under him, he imbibed Panditji's single-minded pursuit and devotion for the flute. He soon developed ease with the techniques of ‘Tantakari’ and ‘Layakari’. With over fourteen years of keen guidance, today he is blessed to have become Panditji's dear disciple. Vivek has accompanied many stalwarts like Panditji himself , Padmavibhushan Pandit Birju Maharaj and Gaana Saraswati Kishori Amonkar at various concerts. He has participated in numerous concerts of classical and fusion music and matched wits in ‘jugalbandis’ with famous exponents of the sitar, violin, santoor and a few karnatic music instruments.
