Sawani was born in a musically rich family. She was introduced to Indian Classical Music at a tender age of only six by her grandmother, Kusum Shende , herself a noted singer of the Kirana Gharana and an honoured artist of the Sangeet Natak Era. Sawani’s father, Dr. Sanjeev Shende, a disciple of Shobha Gurtu, has groomed her in semi classical genres like Thumri, Dadra, Kajri, etc.

Quest for more and more knowledge in music brought Sawani to learn more music under the expert guidance of Dr. Veena Sahasrabuddhe, a noted classical vocalist from Gwalior Gharana. She has been felicitated on several important occasions and has performed at national and international programmes.

Sawani Shende started her recital with raag Amrit Varshani. She gave a beautiful slow tempo rendition in Vilambit Ektaal ‘Nirmohi Piya’ followed by a Drut Ektaal composition ‘ka sung keenhee preet’.

She continued with a madhyalaya composition in Raag Jayant Malhar ‘tore badan par chandrakishori’ and a fascinating composition in drut ektaal ‘aiyi re barkha ritu’. After this she sang a kajri and concluded with a dadra in Raag Bhairavi.

Her soulful recital certainly created an ambience conducive to the rainy season and enthralled the listeners!

During the programme she was accompanied by Rahul Gole on harmonium and Arun Gawai on tabla.
