Shubha Mudgal Biography, Age, Height, Family & More

Shubha Mudgal (born 1 January 1959) is an Indian singer of Hindustani classical music. Her repertoire includes the genres of khyal, thumri, dadra, and Indian pop. She has received the Padma Shri in 2000.
Shubha grew up in Allahabad and after finishing school, attended St. Mary’s Convent Inter College. As children, she and her sister were sent by their artistic-minded parents to a dance class to learn kathak. However, her interest in dance was never great and the fact that she attended a non-descript dance-class in the neighbourhood did not conduce to high levels of accomplishment. She once replied to a dance examiner’s routine query of “Aap kis gharaane ki Kathak naachti hain? (what is the style/school of Kathak to which you belong?)” with the retort, “Hum apne gharaane ki Kathak naachte hain (I dance my own style of Kathak)”. She later switched to Hindustani classical music as her vocation of choice while maintaining the same individualistic attitude. Her first traditional teacher (guru) was Ramashreya Jha in Allahabad.
After completing inter-college, Shubha moved to New Delhi and enrolled at Delhi University for her undergraduate studies. In Delhi, she continued her musical education under Vinay Chandra Maudgalya, who was the founder of Gandharva Mahavidyalaya, a school of fine arts located in Maudgalya’s residence in Connaught Place. Apart from being an outstanding classical musician, Maudgalya was also an accomplished lyricist who wrote the song “Hind Desh ke Niwasi”, used in the animation film Ek Anek Aur Ekta by Vijaya Mulay.
