MALINI RAJURKAR  

A nightingale at home

Malini RajurkarAccomplished vocalist, nationally acclaimed exponent of the Gwalior gharana, vocalist Malini Rajurkar chooses to be known as a housewife.

Malini was born into an orthodox but music-loving family of Ajmer. Her flair for music led to her being introduced to classical music. Predictably her Honours Bachelor's Degree in Arts from the University of Rajasthan was coupled with a degree of Sangeet Nipun from the College of Music, Ajmer.

Her marriage into the Rajurkar family, led to her illustrious father-in-law Pandit Govind Rao Rajurkar recognising her talent and taking her under his tutelage. Malini's singing began to improve and her popularity increased by leaps and bounds. Her family encouraged her to perform in concerts even as she continued to perform her duties as a devoted daughter-in-law and a good wife.

Malini's trained voice began to exude confidence. Her precise tone, highly creative use of taans, impeccable taal, purity of the grammar in music and imaginative content took her to the forefront in the rendering of khayal, tappa and tarana. Since 1964 she has rMalini Rajurkarendered over a thousand concerts and participated in many music festivals.

All India Radio and Doordarshan have accorded her top ranking in their list of artistes and have invited her several times to sing in the Radio Sangeet Sammelan and the National Programme of Music. She has performed world over, USA, Canada, the UK and in the Middle East and has to her credit the release of more than 10 audiocassettes.

In spite of these honours and achievements, Malini Rajurkar continues to be a humble housewife and credits her success to her family's love for music.
