Srivani Jade was born and raised in India. She started her Indian Classical Music training at the age of four, and started performing on radio and stage soon after. She began her Khayal training under Dr. Sharad Gadre in a very badhat-oriented style. This laid the foundation for further talim in the Kirana Gharana under Pt. Parameshwar Hegde of Bengaluru/Dharwad. The Dharwad branch of Kirana Gharana derives its cadence and style from Pt. Sawai Gandharva of Kundgol, teacher to Vidushi Gangubai Hangal, Pt. Bhimsen Joshi and Srivani’s Dada-Guru Pt. Basavaraj Rajguru, among others. It is also influenced by the music of South India, as well as the native music of Karnataka and Maharashtra. Srivani will elaborate on her understanding of Kirana music and its evolution along many branches over time. Joining Srivani on stage are local musicians Sunny Matharu on Tabla and Mohan Bhide on Harmonium.
