 About the Artiste

Shivnath Mishra,Varanasi

Pt. Shivnath was born on 12th October, 1943 at Benaras (Varanasi). At the age of 8, he began his tutelage under the famous classical vocalist and exponent of Thumri, Pt. Mahadev Prasad Mishra.

In 1967, Shivnath achieved the most coveted first place in the All India Radio competition at Allahabad. This was followed by a gold medal at the All India Msuci Conference at Kolkata. The unique feature of this performance was dual tabla players playing to his sitar recital.

He has been doing his riyaz for 8-10 hours everyday and his style reflects a touch of the Benaras Thumri. Rendering his sense of rhythm is another strong point of his.

Pt. Shivnath has been fortunate to play with great masters like Late Pt. Shamta Prasad, Pt. Kishan Maharaj, etc. He has also been an A grade artiste with AIR and Doordarshan. He also played for BBC Television and Austrian Radio.

At present, he is a lecturer and the head of music department at Sampurnand Sanskrit University, Varanasi.
