About The Artiste

Pt. Basavraj Rajguru
[24th August, 1920 to 21st July, 1991]
Padmabhushan Dr. Basavraj Rajguru, the legendary Classical Vocalist was born in Yeliwal a village in district Dharwad, Karnataka. He was gifted with a melodious voice spanning a range of 4 octaves. His converts and recordings with HMV made him a very popular artiste of his times.

Stalwarts like Gaanyogi Pt. Panchakshari Gavayi, Pt. Sureshbabu Mane, Pt. Sawai Gandharva and Pt. Neelkanthbuva have been his guiding forces. In his musical pursuit he imbibed various styles from the Kirana, Gwalior and Patiala Gharanas. His unique presentation led to the creation of the Rajaguru Parampara.

Besides being the recipient of the prestigious Padmashree and the Padmabhushan, other laurels such as the Sangeet-Ratna, Swarasamrat, Sangeet Sudhakar, Gaangandharva, Sangeet Natak Academy and a Doctrate were also bestowed upon him.

As a guru in the field of classical vocal he left behind a galaxy of disciples such as Somnath Mardur, Ganpati Bhat, Parmeshar, Shreepad and Shantaram Hegde, Muddumohan, Sangeeta Katti, Maheshkumar, Hanumant Dore and Shivanand Patil.

He established the Rajguru Sangeet Sabha in Dharwad, now run by his wife Bharatidevi and son Nijguna Rajguru. The Government has established a National Trust in his memory under the aegis of which musical activities will be conducted. These activities include the running of a music college, a museum and an annual music festival.

Dr. Basavrajji?s music continues to stay alive through his disciples.
