Filmed as a farmhouse in Mulshi, Mevundi sings as the rain falls Raag Brindavani Sarang. Accompanying is Dhattatray Bhave (tabla) and Leeladhar Chakradev (harmonium). Born in Hubli, his initial training began at home, informally singing bhajans and other devotional music. He recounts that “there was no musician as such in my family, although they would listen to songs on the radio, identify the ragas and appreciate music in general".
Aged 14 he ventured out to find a guru. He received instruction from Arjunsa Nakod for over a decade, and later trained with Shripati Padigar, a disciple of Bhimsen Joshi. Many hear a resemblance between his voice and Joshi’s, with strong incorporation of ideas from Carnatic music and a rich abhang repertoire. He takes an eclectic approach to classical music, saying that “My learning is plucked from various greats of different gharanas.”
