A young musician from Pune, India, Gandhaar started intensive training in Indian classical music with his father, at the age of 4. With this strong base of a codified form of music, Gandhaar decided to apply the melodic depth of Indian classical music to a modern, urban setting.
Gandhaar started creating music that was difficult to define at the time. A strong Indian melodic identity, combined with the finesse of electronic music production. This soon became his signature sound, and he started getting invited to create music for applications that needed this modern and global take on Indian music.
From BGM and songs for TV and film, to advertising jingles and corporate presentations, Gandhaar has been creating music for a wide range of applications for a decade and a half. He also composes and produces independently released music under his own name, while producing music for indie song writers from around the world. Notably, he recorded and was a co-composer on Inner World, a music album by The Dalai Lama, in 2020.
Gandhaar has also been performing his own music, and has played with musicians like Ehsaan Noorani, Taufiq Qureshi, Gino Banks, Sanjay Divecha, and many more. He has also been touring with the Karsh Kale Collective since 2022, playing at private events and festivals around the country.
