Ashwini Bhide Deshpande «Back
Smt. Ashwini Bhide-Deshpande (born in 1960) is a Hindustani classical music vocalist.

Ashwini was born into a family with strong musical traditions. She started her early classical training at the age of five, under the guidance of Pandit Narayanrao Datar. She then completed her Sangeet Visharad from the Gandharva Mahavidhyalaya. Since then she has been under the tutelage of her mother Smt. Manik Bhide, who has been instilling in her the intricacies and traditions of the Jaipur-Atrauli Gharana.Ashwini has inherited all that was best in her mother’s style and was able to add a lot to her repertoire with great sensitivity and intellect. Currently Ashwini is also receiving guidance from one of the stalwarts of the Jaipur-Atrauli Gharana, Pandit Ratanakar Pai.

Systematic exposition of the Raag structure, brilliant phrasing, variety of taan patterns, ease and grace in all of the three octaves mark her singing. She does not merely present the gammer of a Raag, but can build it up into an aesthetically pleasing experience.

Smt. Ashwini Bhide-Deshpande is also a powerful teacher, as well as performer and has taught a handful of distinguished disciples like Saniya Kulkarni-Patankar and Shri Dhanashree Ghaisas
