About this album

Ninaad Music takes pride in bringing out Niranjani to mark the completion of 50 years of performing career of Dr. Prabha Atre. One of the senior most vocalists of Hindustani music representing the Kirana Gharana, Dr. Prabha Atre is known for her single-minded devotion to her music. Trained in the Guru-Shishya tradition under late Pandit Suresh Babu Mane and his renowned sister Padmabhushan Hirabai Badodekar, Prabha Atre also drew inspiration from the legendary vocalists Ustad Amir Khan and Ustad Bade Gulam Ali Khan.

A sincere, hardworking and talented student, she soon earned a special place of distinction for herself with her brilliant thinking, slick performing, superbly creative composing and able teaching. Over last five decades she has contributed to the world of music in various capacities like Assistant Producer of the All India Radio, Professor and Head of the music Department of SNDT Women's University, Mumbai, Producer and Director of Swarshree and committee member for several Social and Cultural institutions. A Science and Law graduate who went on to write a Ph.D. thesis on "Sargam", Dr. Atre has also authored several books like Swarmayee, Swaralee and Swarangini covering various aspects of music. Her analytical approach and original thinking give a unique creative flavor to her performances. A sincere follower of tradition, she is also sensitive to the changing times.

Naturally, her performances are always looked forward by audiences irrespective of the genre she chooses to perform like Khayal, Thumri, Dadra, Bhajan or even Gazal.

Calm, composed, ever looking for greater heights of perfection, yet very detached to the ups and downs that an artist experiences in life, Dr. Prabha Atre, the accomplished musician and the revered Guru continues her successful journey on the road of music. Ninaad Music wishes ever enriching bliss to this self made Niranjani.
