Vocal Recital By Omkar Dadarkar

May 4 @ 9:30 am - 1:00 pm

When globalization is firmly gripping the world making most of the modern society involved in material gold-rush, very few persons maintain their originality and tradition. Omkar Dadarkar is one of them. Born in Mumbai, he was enthused by his parents, both being Marathi Natya-Sangeet performers, and took his initial training under Dr. Ram Deshpande
As the nephew and shishya of the legendary vocalist Padmashri Manik Verma, Omkar was fortunate enough to get taleem from her. After that he took training from Pt. Yashwantbua Joshi of Gwalior Gharana under the Guru-shishya parampara tradition.
Later , he was selected as scholar in I.T.C. Sangeet Research Academy and went through rigorous training for 6 years under the tutelage of guru Pt. Ulhas Kashalkar. Also, he got his training of light classical form under Vidushi Girijadevi and Srinivas Khale.
His outstanding talents were recognized by the Sangeet Natak Akedmi who awarded him the Bismaillah Khan Yuva Puraskar – the most prestigious award given younger artists.
Having imbibed primary lessons in music since childhood, Siddhesh has been privileged to receive guidance from his first Guru, Shri Sharad Mathkar in Goa and later, placed under the tutelage of Pt. Tulsidas Borkar, renowned Harmonium exponent and Guru.
The difficult and lesser known art of Jaltarang was taken up by Siddhesh with inspiration from Shri Sharad Mathkar, who personally crafted his first set of Jaltarang apparatus.
Siddhesh gained valuable knowledge about instrumental recitals and depths of classical music from Pt. Tulsidas Borkar, enabling Siddhesh to present Jaltarang recitals, a very rare occurrence in Indian classical music.
He has been the recipient of many eminent music scholarships including accolades by the Govt. of India and its H.R.D. Ministry and many other awards to add to his long list of achievements. He is presently employed as a classical music teacher at Sharda Sangeet Vidyalaya, Mumbai.
Sanjay was born in a music loving family and was introduced to the art of playing Tabla under Late Pt. Sabade at Pune Bharat Gayan Samaj. Later he took Taleem from the renowned Tabla player Pt. Suresh Talwalkar of Delhi-Farookabad Gharana, in a Guru Shishya Parampara. He also had the privilege of understanding the beauty of Punjab Gharana under the guidance of world renowned Tabla maestro Ustad. Alla Rakha Khan Saheb. He is currently taking talim from PT Yogesh Samsi.
Sanjay is recipient of the coveted “Ahmedjaan Thirakwaa Scholarship” for Solo Performance. He has accompanied renowned artists like Smt. Vasundhara Komkali, Pt. Ulhas Kashalkar, Pt. Smt. Malini Rajurkar, Pt. Jasraj, Dr. Prabha Atre, Pt. Dinkar Kaikini, Dr. Ashwini Bhide-Deshpande , Smt. Veena Sahastrabudhe and many such great artists.
