Aditya Bhat has been deeply passionate about Hindustani Classical music from a young age. His training in Hindustani vocal music started under Smt. Lalitha Rao, who is the wife of Pt. Parameshwar Hegde. He later transitioned to instrumental music, delving into the intricate tantrakari style of sitar taught by Smt. Sadhana Jayaram, the sister of the renowned Pt Shubhendra Rao. After a hiatus of a few years, he returned to sitar under the tutelage of Smt. Sampada Bhalerao. He is excited and deeply honored to serve as a board member of Ragamala. He believes that this will enrich his musical journey and allow him to contribute meaningfully to the vibrant Indian Classical music community.
