Biography

Parthiv Gohil, a playback singer for Indian films, was born on 18 February, 1976 in Bhavnagar, a town in the Saurashtra region of Gujarat state. Both his great grandfather and father shared a passion for music and it is they who introduced him to the world of classical music.

At the tender age of ten, Parthiv began his formal lessons with Smt. Bhanuben Solanki, Smt. Dakshaben Mehta and Shri Laxmipati Shukla, a disciple of Pandit Omkarnath Thakur.

At the age of 14, he won the Pandit Omkarnath Thakur Competition, which was followed by the state talent search competition.

Under the gurukul scholarship scheme of SPICMACAY he was chosen to be trained under Zia Fariduddin Dagar, a descendant of the legendary Tansen. From him, Parthiv learnt the tenets of voice culturing. Under the aegis of SPICMACAY he got to accompany maestros such as Hariprasad Chaurasia, Sultan Khan, Gundecha Brothers and V. G. Jog on tanpura and learnt a lot from them as well.

He was a runner-up in TV’s Sa Re Ga Ma show. The competition was judged by renowned names like Pt. Jasraj, Parveen Sultana, Khayyam, O P Nayyar, Kalyanji Anandji, Anil Biswas, Jagjit Singh and Rajkumariji. His voice and style have been appreciated by many and his concerts have enthralled both Indian and overseas audience alike. He is currently hosting the program Sa Re Ga Ma on Alpha Gujarati channel of ZEE.

He now lives in Mumbai. His work as a film singer started with the title song and some back vocals for Sanjay Leela Bhansali’s film Devdas.
