Parthiv was born on 18th February, 1976 in Bhavnagar, a town in Saurashtra region of Gujarat. Both his great grand father and father shared a passion for music and it is they who introduced him to the world of classical music.
At the tender age of ten, Parthiv began his formal lessons with smt. bhanuben Solanki, smt. Dakshaben Mehta and shri Laxmipati Shukla, a disciple of Pandit Omkarnath Thakur.
Gradually his interest developed into passion and riyaz (practice) of music became a part of his everyday routine. At the age of 14, he wont the Pandit Omkarnath Thakur Competition, which was followed by the state talent search competition.
Under the gurukul scholarship scheme of SPIC MACAY he was chosen to be trained under Zia-Farid-Ud-Din Daagar, a descendent of the legendary Tansen. From him, Parthiv learnt the tannets of voice culturing. Under the aegis of SPIC MACAY he got to accompany maestros like Pt. Hariprasad Chaurasia, Ustad Sultan Khan, Gundecha Brothers and Shri V G Jog on Tanpura and learnt a lot from them as well.
His single minded devotion towards music rewarded him with the runner up title in TVS Sa Re Ga Ma. The competition was judged by renowned names like Pt. Jasraj, Parveen Sultana, Khayyam, O P Nayyar, Kalyanji Anandji, Anil Biswas, Jagjit Singh and Rajkumariji. His voice and style have been appreciated by many and his concerts have enthralled both Indian and overseas audience alike.
And now Parthiv is set to explore new avenues. After proving himself as a talented singer, he is all set to achieve acclaim as a host as well. He is hosting the program Sa Re Ga Ma on Alpha Gujarati channel of ZEE.
