Priya is a disciple of Bangalore-based vocalist Smt Aditi Kaikini Upadhya. She has had the rare privilege of training in the gurukul style. Her tutelage was supplemented with advanced training from the late stalwart musician and scholar, Pandit Dinkar Kaikini, in Mumbai, and she continues to receive guidance from his wife and noted vocalist, Guru Smt Shashikala Kaikini.
In this concert, Priya will present some of the signature compositions of the Agra Gharana of Khyal.
