Hailing from Dharwad, Nachiketa Yakkundi was initiated into Hindustani vocal
music by his parents. His formal study began in Madras under Shri B. N. Simha and later under
Shri B. Hanumantachar. His rigorous and extended pedagogy came under the
virtuoso late Padmabhushan Pandit
Basavraj Rajguru. Nachiketa
has performed in several cities across India
and North America.
A resident of the San Francisco Bay Area, he runs the Rajguru Sangeet
Vidyaniketan school of music.
In addition to the music of
Nachiketa Yakkundi available from this site, there is a myriad of material
available from the places below.
