Omkar Dadarkar’s khayal style is receiving growing plaudits across the world. He first learned from his parents, then from a vast range of gurus including his aunt Manik Verma, Dr. Ram Deshpande, Pandit Yashwanthbua Joshi, Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar, Girija Devi, and Shrinivas 'Khale Kaka' Khale.
A period of study as an ITC Sangeet Research Academy scholar further sharpened his control, and his performance career goes from strength to strength with a growing resumé of awards. He blends the analytical with the soulful, bringing traditional Gwalior khayal to new global audiences each year.
