At 18, he won the All India Radio’s Best Singer Award in 1969. Thereafter, awards, accolades and distinctions followed him. He received the Gujarat State Award in 1976 & 1989.

Like a spring of water bursting forth from the earth, the music within Ashit is a force eager to be released, and it is a force that cannot be confined to just one form or expression. Ashit’s repertoire flows both wide and deep. In his rich, baritone voice he sings for both audiences as well as recordings; he composes & arranges its performance. Well known for his soulful light classical renderings, he is equally sought after for his creative faculty which covers an astoundingly wide range; from composing scores for dramas, dance ballets, TV serials & films to innovate effervescent jingles. “Versatile” is the word to sum up Ashit’s creative endeavor & genius. Musical talent has come to Ashit as a parental inheritance. After a degree in Commerce, Baroda-born Ashit took a Diploma in vocal music from M.S. University, & came down to Bombay with single minded determination to carve a niche for himself in the world of music. On this firm foundation he has raised a large & intricate edifice of musical accomplishment.
