Amita Pavgi Gokhale, M. F. A. (Music) Mumbai University & Sangeet Alankaar, is a classic example of how family upbringing and environment moulds a person. Her mother and Guru ,Smt.Shubhada Pavgi is a noted classical singer and well known music critic. Mother being a disciple and an ardent follower of revered Pt.Gajananbuwa Joshi , Smt.Shubhada Paradkar and Padmashree Pt.Ulhas Kashalkar , Amita was born with classical music in her veins. The entire family literally breathed music. Amita’s father Shri.Shreekant Pavgi was then a trustee of many renowned educational and musical institutions. Naturally, all well known artists and musicians used to stay with the family during their concert tours in Dombivli. Amita hence picked up the fine and delicate nuances of Hindustani classical music by listening to musical interactions between such stalwarts who frequented her home.
