Sanjeev Shukla, an accomplished Hindustani Classical vocalist, composer and a trainer has been practicing music since the age of 14. Getting initiated into vocal training with ‘Shabad’ singing under Beer Jeet Singh ji, he started his professional training under the tutelage of Guru in Smt. Sonia Roy, at Shriram Bharatiya Kala Kendra, Mandi House. Under her guidance, he had the fortune of learning the subtleties of the Indora-Kirana Gharana, which have been recently blended with those of Guru Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar’s Gwalior-Agra-Jaipur ‘Gayaki’. This comes from his currently progressing ‘Taaleem’ under Guru Pandit Ulhas Kashalkar`s senior disciple, Mr. Ojesh Pratap Singh.
