From a short stint in playback singing
for a Punjabi film Mirza Sahiba to a visiting teacher in SOAS,
London University, it's been a long and fulfilling journey for
young vocalist Sunanda Sharma, a musical journey, which she says
has no manzil.
For the uninitiated,
Sunanda is a vocalist in Hindustani classical music of the Banaras
Gharana and has been trained under the tutelage of Padma Bhushan
For Sadhana, the
journey began in Dah in Himachal at the age of five, under her
father, Sudarshan Sharma.
"While my first Guru,
so to speak, is my father under whom I took an initial training,
it was under a traditional guru-shishya parampara for eight years
under my Guru Girija Devi that I was trained in Khayal.
