Mahesh Kale,USA

Mahesh is a young, budding and talented vocalist of Indian Classical of the new generation. He has also been trained in various faculties of semi-classical music including Thumri, Tappa, Bhajan, Bhavgeet, Natyageet, etc. Having learnt under the renowned guru Padmashree Pt. Jitendra Abhisheki, who is well known to have learnt several gharanas (schools of music), listening to Mahesh's performances one sees a very pleasant blend of the various gharanas. Endowed with a rich resonant voice, Mahesh's performances are marked by an excellent command over both the rhythm and the melody.

Born in 1976, Mahesh delighted an audience of over 5000 at a religious place, “Gondavale”, with the rendition of a devotional song at the tender age of 3. For Mahesh music is in his genes. He was initiated into music by his mother, an Indian Classical vocalist, who has completed her Masters in music under the guidance of Veena Sahasrabudhe. Later Mahesh learnt under the guidance of Purushottam Gangurde (disciple of Pandit Yashwantbua Joshi).

Mahesh has given numerous solo concerts in India and abroad in places like Pune, Mumbai, Goa, Ahmedabad, Bangalore, Indore, Los Angeles, San Jose, San Francisco, Chicago, Santa Barbara, Montecito, etc. He has appeared on television and radio on many occasions. These include the Spirit of National Integrity Concert, Gangadeep, Jeevan Gane, Bhakti Bhav, etc. He also had the privilege to work with eminent personalities like Prabhaka Karekar, Suresh Wadkar, Shridhar Phadke, Anand Modak, Upendra Bhat, etc.

He is currently pursuing his Masters in Media Arts and Technology at University of California at Santa Barbara (USA). In an effort to increase the awareness of Indian Classical music, Mahesh is actively involved with Raagmala, an association promoting the music and culture of India and the Indian subcontinent within the community of Santa Barbara. Along with teaching vocal music, he also conducts Lecture and Demonstration seminars for music lovers and aspirants.
