Dhruv Ghanekar

Dhruv Ghanekar is a Prolific Composer, Producer and highly respected Guitar player based in Mumbai. He has performed and recorded with some of the biggest names in India and the International arena. His latest album release titled 'Voyage' is a musical sojourn of various international cultures as seen and heard through Dhruv’s Indian lens. The music crosses many borders and transcends any fusion effort to come out of this region by many a mile. A microcosm of global diversity in itself, the album leaves one yearning for more with its seamless blend of genres from around the world, into a singular sonic voice. Dhruv is the most sought after composer working in Mumbai today. He balances his time scoring music and performing his funky brand of Jazz and Indian sound.

"The growth of the Indie music genre can be attributed to a few determined artists like Dhruv Ghanekar"- Times of India
" Voyage combines serious musicianship with commercial appeal. Though its traditional Indian roots are strong, Dhruv's contemporary flair seamlessly navigates other cultures, beautifully blending various folkloric colours with driving rock muscle, jazz-fusion elasticity and vocal sophistication. It's a blast from start to finish." - Ian Patterson - All About Jazz
