A glittering gem in the crown of Indian classical music, Gauri’s interest in Hindustaani classical vocal music was aroused by listening to her mother, Dr. Vidya Damle, herself a disciple of Pandit Jitendra Abhisheki. Under the watchful eye of her gurus, Smt. Madhuri Joshi and Pandit Gangadharbuwa Pimpalkhare of the Kirana gharana, Gauri delved deep into the spiritual essence of Indian classical music to blossom into a musical genius.
She later on followed in her mother’s footsteps by receiving extensive taalim for several years – initially from late Padmashree Pt. Jitendra Abhisheki and thereafter from Pandita Padma Talwalkar till date. This training blended in her the gayaki of Jaipur, Gwalior and Kirana gharanas. Vocalist of mesmerizing melodies, Smt Gauri Pathare has always enthralled her audiences with her performances.
Her voice is her forte - she was trained in various voice culture techniques by Ustaad Syeeduddin Daagar (noted dhrupad dhamar gaayak).
