As a son of Brahmin he has Sanskrit recitations and Vedic mantras in his blood. He learned Dhrupad from childhood with his grandfather Kanheya Lal Bandhavi – a court singer at the royal court of Rewa Madhya Pradesh – and has performed with him countless times.
Amit has a very intensive singing training behind him, which includes Pranayam Yoga & Sound Yoga. On 7 days of the week, he sang for several years between six and ten hours.
Furthermore, he also learned Tabla and Dholak (percussion instruments), rhythmic improvisations and Leykari in singing are therefore his specialties. He has an incredible feeling for rhythmic improvisations and especially Upaj, the improvisation in the song part, which is very entertaining.
