A glittering gem in the crown of Indian classical music, Gauri’s interest in Hindustaani classical vocal music was aroused by listening to her mother, Dr. Vidya Damle, herself a disciple of Pandit Jitendra Abhisheki. Under the watchful eye of her gurus, Smt. Madhuri Joshi and Pandit Gangadharbuwa Pimpalkhare of the Kirana gharana, Gauri delved deep into the spiritual essence of Indian classical music to blossom into a musical genius.
Her voice is her forte - she was trained in various voice culture techniques by Ustaad Syeeduddin Daagar (noted dhrupad dhamar gaayak).
Gauri Pathare holds a degree in Computer Science from the University of Pune and a Diploma in IT from NIIT.
During her early years in addition to numerous inter-collegiate, inter-university and inter-state trophies, Gauri also won the All India Radio competition. Gauri was the vocal accompaniment to Pt. Suresh Talwalkar for his taal maala concerts in her initial years.
