Fortunate are those, who could listen to Pt. Mukul Shivputra. I consider myself utterly fortunate as I could attend and enjoy a few of concerts given by Pt. Mukul Shivputra. Son of legendary Pt. Kumar Gandharva, Mukul Shivputra is certainly the best vocalist alive today. His music is haunting, it haunts you for years; so difficult it is to ignore and forget his music. Pt. Mukul Shivputra is an ocean in terms of content of his music, his unique style of presenting music and the afterthoughts it lives in the minds of listeners.
He has a mystic and careless look; which puts him above all musicians. He is not bothered it seems about all the things about which other performers always worry- audience, fame, publicity, and so on. Once his concert was arranged at Vasantotsav, Pune. He announced that he would sing Raga Malkauns, but did not sing anything. Finally, Rahul Deshpande took ahead the concert. I have recorded all the concerts given by him; recordings will be shared with those who are truly interested.
