Rahul Deshpande’s Audio Blog

About a year ago, I discovered that renowned classical vocalist Rahul Deshpande has been publishing an audio blog on Soundcloud. Rahul Deshpande is the grandson of Vasantrao Deshpande (who we have discussed on this blog before). He is very active in the theatre scene, where he has recently revived old musicals (or Sangeet Natak as they are called in Marathi) with new actors. One of these musicals, Katyar Kaljat Ghusli, was recently made into a movie, where he provided the voice for the character of Khansaheb. He also organises the very popular Vasantostsav festival annually, in the memory of his grandfather.

In his audio blog, he covers a range of musical styles including bhajans, bandishes, ghazals and even popular music. This includes him singing parts of,  or entire pieces and then going on to explain the various nuances not just pertaining to the music, but also the lyrics. This is accompanied by anecdotes and his own path to becoming a successful musician.

So do check it out!
