About Kanebua Pratishthan

The tradition of India revolves around Art and Culture. Music is at the core of it, which is why one of the Vedas (Samveda) is devoted to Music. The Hindustani Classical Music is a form of art which has rules and techniques, aesthetic and beauty, art and science, and requires years of dedicated taleem to achieve.

Sangeetacharya D V Kanebua was a maestro of Indian Classical Music. He was a renowned vocalist of Agra- Gwalior Gharana. He lived with the philosophy of taking music to small towns and back to the roots of society. He nurtured many students like Narendra Kanekar, Sharad Jambhekar, Balasaheb Tikekar, Hrishikesh Bodas, Mangala Joshi, Varsha Bhave and Manjusha Patil. Each one of the disciples still cherish the memories of tutelage of Sangeetacharya Kanebua. Despite the authentic presentation of Raag, Kanebua always insisted upon the aesthetic thought behind Raag. Kanebua believed that within the given framework of Raag each of his disciple may present it differently and aesthetically ; and yet Kanebua encouraged such creativity of his disciples. The nitty gritty of performance including the pleasurable facial expressions were constantly insisted upon by Kanebua.

For his lifetime contribution as a vocalist and Guru, he was bestowed with FIE Foundation Award, Daftari Puraskar and honorary doctorate or Sangeetacharya from Akhil. Bharatiya Gandharva Mahavidyalay
