Maharashtra Governor pays tributes to Kishori Amonkar

The Governor of Maharashtra CH Vidyasagar Rao has paid rich tributes to Hindustani classical vocalist Smt Kishori Amonkar who passed away in Mumbai late last evening. In a condolence message, the Governor has said:

“Smt Kishori Amonkar was a great vocalist gifted with a divine voice. She belonged to the small league of vocalists who took Hindustani classical music to great heights. While assiduously retaining the essence of her classical tradition, she welcomed innovative ideas. A great Guru herself, Kishori Tai passed on the knowledge she acquired through years of dedication to her disciples. In her demise, the field of Indian classical music has lost one of the most luminous stars. My tributes to her memory.”
