 About the Artiste

Balchandra Fadnavis,Mumbai

Dr. Balchandra's (a surgeon) inclination towards creative arts was obvious right from childhood. He had people wondering when he decided to take medicine as his career.

It was sheer coincidence that he happened to attend a live concert of PT. Shivkumar Sharma in 1974 and experience the healing touch of Santoor. Having bought a santoor with his first stipend, he started his riyaaz like Eklavya.

After acquiring a Master's degree in Surgery in 1979, he busied himself with his profession, but a deep desire within his heart remained unfulfilled. Realising the young doctor's commitment, Pt. Shivkumar acknowledged him as a disciple in 1984. The tutelage still continues.

He has then performed before learned audiences and achieved the prestigious Sur Mani title by Sur Singar Samsad, Mumbai. He has also played the santoor in "Ritu", compositions by Pt. Vijay Raghav Rao.
