Welcome to Official Website of Dhananjay Hegde
Born Musician,Child Prodigy and One of the Best Young Vocalist of the Country
Dhananjay born in a musical family, is a young and talented Hindustani classical vocalist. At the age of four, he was identifying the shruthi or musical note of a car horn or temple bell. Observing this talent, his parents encouraged Dhananjay to learn music. He began learning music at the age of four from his mother Smt. Geeta Hegde. His father Sri G.S. Hegde is a Tabla player and founder of a music Organization “SAPTHAK”, which is successfully promoting Hindustani Music in Bangalore and outside too.
Later, Dhananjay was fortunate enough to have trained under Pt. Venkateshkumar from Dharwad, for a while. In 1989, he joined Pt. Vinayak Torvi for an advanced training and he has undergone rigorous training under panditji in Gurukul tradition. It was this taleem which he received from panditji, moulded Dhananjay into a complete performer. It was not just learning one to one from Panditji, but being with him for his concerts all over, made a huge impact on Dhananjay, as a performer. After the intense Taleem of 14 years, he shifted to Mumbai to pursue his music career and to reach greater heights in music field. But he still seeks guidance from panditji.
One of the interesting aspects of Dhananjay’s music is the blend of Kirana and Gwalior Gharana, which he has imbibed from his Guru. Dhananjay aspires to be honest musican and to follow in the footsteps of maestros of yesteryears.
He started performing at the age of seven and has not looked back since then.Dhananjay has several commercial audio cd’s to his credit and his 2 releases are available on
Dhananjay is presently working as Branch Manager in Karnataka Bank Ltd, Mumbai.
