I am writing to report the passing of Pandit Dinkar Kaikini, an exemplary exponent of the Ratanjankar-Bhatkhande (Agra) tradition of performer-pedagogues and one of the greatest HCM composers of our time. Pandit Kaikini was in indifferent health for over a year, and had retired from performance a few years ago. He is survived by his wife, Ms. Shashikala Kaikini, daughter Aditi (Upadhya), two sons, Yogesh (Samsi) and Rajesh, and grandchildren. I came to know of his demise from his disciple Pt. Dhruba Ghosh this morning. His was a long and distinguished life and career that will be celebrated by students and performers of HCM for generations to come.

RIP.

This is very sad news indeed. I'd like to extend my deepest condolences to his family, friends and students.

Sad news again. Do we have an age?

I put up an 80s Brit TV clip of him a while ago on Youtube.

Nick, a few sites give his birth as on October 2, 1927.

One thing I always liked was that the French Radio label Ocora released a CD of Dinkar Kaikini a long time ago and brought him to European listeners. Such good taste.

I'll have to study him some more. I haven't heard too much of him, but he seems pretty sensitive to the material.
