Pt. Ajay Pohankar, initially trained by his mother, renowned musicologist Dr. Susheela Pohankar, is one of India’s great classical artists. Recognised as a child prodigy, his early training was under the Kirana Gharana, a school of music that has absorbed many features of the Carnatic tradition. However, Ajayji’s talent has shown him to be extremely adaptable to other musical styles and he has mastered the Patiala and Gwalior Gharana styles in addition to the Kirana tradition. His singing impresses primarily for its aesthetically beautiful rendering style & impeccable technique. A fine singer of Thumri, Ajayji has shown the range of his talent in his melodious and gentle interpretation of the bhajans in this recording.
