Along the Path of Music

Prabha Atre (Author)

The dearth of written material of quality and authenticity on contemporary music performance, musicians and related issues to be considered seriously in the context of preservation and propagation of Indian classical music.

The reading material available today on Indian music is mainly by theoreticians and not practicing musicians. In general, one observes lack of objectivity and scientific approach in the work by Indians and the absence of cultural perspective in the work by non-Indians. A professional Indian woman performer is still a rarity in this field.

‘Along the Path of Music’ is not a biographical work. It is a journey in and of a noted musician Dr. Prabha Atre who can not dissociate herself from music even in her personal life. A first hand account of her musical journey, observations, experiences, reactions, in her own words makes reading of this book credibility.

Padmashri, Padmabhushan, Tagore Akademi Fellow, Kalidas Samman and Sangeet Natak Akademi awardee Dr. Prabha Atre is an eminent personality in the field of music. She is revered as a brilliant thinker, performer, academician, composer and guru. The Various positions she held as Assistant Producer at the All India Radio, Professor and Head of the Department of Post-Graduate Studies & Research in Music at SNDT Women’s University, Mumbai and Producer-Director of the recording company ‘Swarashree’ have enriched her personality. Dr. Atre has a rare blend of skill and insight and has displayed constant innovation and creative endeavour which distinguishes her both in the classical and light-classical idioms.

A senior vocalist rpresnting the Kirana gharaanaa, Dr. Atre, was trained under Pt Sureshbabu Mane, Pta Hirabai Badodekar and drew much inspiration from the styles of Ustad Amir Khan and Ustad Babu Ghulam Ali Khan – renowned maestros of Indian classical music.
