Veena Sahasrabuddhe

Profile Image

Veena Sahasrabuddhe (1948-2016) was an esteemed Hindustani classical vocalist, hailing from the Gwalior gharana. Her unique style drew from the Kirana and Jaipur gharanas as well as her university degree in Literature & Vocal Performance, and was showcased on over 40 albums throughout her lifetime. She found ample time to teach alongside a successful performance career, demonstrating Indian music to schoolchildren and advanced students alike. She is sorely missed by many, but her superb musical legacy lives on.
