Kavita Krishnamurthy's Birthday

TDIM - Kavita Krishnamurthy's Birthday - 25th Jan

Today is Kavita Krishnamurthy’s birthday! She is an Indian film playback singer by profession. She has sung a wide range of classical-based songs. In her career, she has also worked with a variety of music composers, including R. D. Burman and A. R. Rahman. She is also the recipient of four Filmfare Best Female Playback Singer Awards, including 3 consecutive awards in the period 1994–1996, and the Padmashri which she received in 2006. In March 2013, she also launched her own app which is available for free download in the Apple App Store and the Google Play Store. 

 

She was born in a Tamil Iyer family in New Delhi, India to T.S. Krishnamurthy, an employee of Education Ministry. She began her music training with her aunt, Mrs. Bhattacharya, who taught her Rabindra Sangeet. She began her formal training in Hindustani classical music under Balram Puri, a classical singer.

At a tender age of eight, Kavita won a gold medal at a music competition. Subsequently, she kept winning many such gold medals as she kept participating in the Inter-Ministry Classical Competition in New Delhi in the mid-1960s.

 

Although primarily a playback singer, Kavita has sung with orchestras as a soloist. She collaborated with Western artists from jazz, pop and classical fields. She has lent her voice for many ghazals and devotional music albums. Both as a fusion music singer and as a playback singer, Kavita has performed throughout India.
