Shivani Mirajkar, born in a non-musical family, is currently recognised as one of the most promising up-coming Hindustani classical vocalist of the younger generation. Encouraged and supported ably by her parents, Shivani, who at the tender age of 9 years, began training with veteran Pandit Chandrashekhar Puranikmath of Dharwad,an exponent of the Gwalior-Kirana Gharanas . Shivani credits Pt. Puranikmath for having instilled in her a love and respect for the art in her formative years that would ultimately lead her to choose to pursue music as a career. Dharwad which is the land of many top class artists and which is a breeding ground for Hindustani classical musicians provided her the perfect atmosphere to pursue her music career. 

Shivani later began learning from Pandit Kaivalyakumar Gurav of Dharwad, a renowned musician and guru hailing from the Kirana Gharana tradition of Hindustani music under whose guidance, she explored the intricacies of the Gharana which centre on the precise tuning and expression of notes.  Further under the tutelage of Padmashree Pt. Ulhas Kashalkar of Pune, a prodigious representative of the Gwalior, Jaipur and Agra Gharanas, Shivani had an experience of diverse learning which has allowed her to imbibe the aesthetic beauty of each tradition into her own singing while being able to switch styles at will. At every performance she gives, her expansive training across different traditions simply condenses into a delightful confluence of melody and rhythm that never fails to surprise her audience. Endowed with a rich and resonant voice, Shivani has the ability to uncover great depths of every raaga she sings. Her tremendously flexible voice traverses notes across octaves with such precision and grace as to force her listeners to the edge of their seats with excitement. A standout feature of her singing is her incredibly swift Taans – which she executes with such power and precision that would make any connoisseur tip his or her hat with respect.
