Born in a musician’s family, Manjiri Alegaonkar was trained in vocal music since a very young age by her father, Mohanrao Karve. Initially she was exposed to Gwalior gharana, specifically to the tradition of Ramkrishnabua Vaze, the mentor of her father. Thereafter, she was groomed in the gayaki of Jaipur-Atrauli by well-known musicians: Wamanrao Deshpande, Babanrao Haldankar and M. S. Kanetkar. Besides classical music, she is also adept in semi-classical and light music. As an ‘A’ grade artiste of Akashvani and Doordarshan, she has performed widely and received many accolades and awards, notable amongst them is the Kumar Gandharva Award. Alegaonkar will present a typical Hindustani music recital drawing from her vast repertoire of Gwalior and Jaipur gharana bandishes.
