A Tribute to the

Maestro Pandit Ravi Kichlu

The man

Born in Almora in 1932, and educated at the Benaras Hindu University, Pandit Ravi Kichlu was a doyen of the Agra Gharana, having trained under Ustad Moinuddin Dagar, Ustad Aminuddin Dagar and Ustad Latafat Hussain Khan.
His mesmerising performances, with a distinct emphasis on Dagar Bani and Alapchari (rendered in the nom-tom style), thrilled audiences in India and abroad.
A classical vocalist of international repute, Pt. Ravi Kichlu was gifted with a clear, melodious and versatile voice which also blended effortlessly with semi-classical and light music like thumri, dadra, kajri, geet, bhajan and ghazal. His sons Neeraj, Vibhas and Vivek often accompanied him during his recitals.
