 About the Artiste

Ashit Desai,Mumbai

Musical talent has come to Ashit as a parental inheritance. After a degree in Commerce, Baroda-born Ashit took a Diploma in vocal music from M.S. University, & came down to Bombay with single minded determination to carve a niche for himself in the world of music. On this firm foundation he has raised a large & intricate edifice of musical accomplishment.

Ashit has been honoured time again by the music world. At 18, he won the All India Radio's Best Singer Award in 1969. Since then, accolades, distinction & awards have come his way in profusion, including the Gujarat state Award in 1976 & 1989. He has earned unstinted acclaim for his music direction in the monumental Doordarshan serial "Chanakya" (recorded our very own Sudeep Studio in Mumbai).

Ashit's association with Sitar Maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar is possibly the most significant phase of his career. The maestro enlisted Ashit in composing music for the Asiad, & placed him in charge of overall coordination of cultural events. This brought him the conferment of the coveted Asiad Jyoti Medal by the President of India. Ashit also sang devotional songs for Attenborough's film "Gandhi".
In 1988, he conducted Pandit Ravi Shankar's orchestral compositions at the closing ceremony of the Festival of India in Moscow. As the maestro's assistant, orchestra conductor & singer, he toured the U.K. & India in 1989 with Panditji's ballet, "Ghanashyam".

These & other honours sit lightly on Ashit Desai's shoulders. In his restless quest for excellence, Ashit has his moorings firmly rooted in tradition; but he revels in experimenting with creative variations within the broad framework of the poetic mood which is being evoked. As a composer, his style reveals distinct flashes of individuality & is also replete with emotion.
