Shyamalaji’s great-grandfather Adyanatakkar Shri Vishnudas Bhave of Sangli was revered as the pioneer of Marathi Theatre. She is the daughter of Acharya Pandit Govind Vithal Bhave and Vidushi Lakshmi G. Bhave who established Saraswati Sangeet Vidyalaya at Bangalore in 1930. Pandit Bhave was the disciple of the foremost exponent of Gwalior Gharana Acharya Pandit Vishnu Digambar Paluskar. This precious heritage is carried forward and enriched by Shyamalaji.

She has expertise in both styles of Indian Classical Music – Hindustani and Carnatic. This versatility earned her the title ‘Ubhaygaanvidushi’ at a young age of twelve years from Sir M. Vishveshwaraiah, Engineer-Statesman and Diwaan of erstwhile Mysore State. Dakshinottaram, a single artiste vocal jugalbandi, is her distinctive contribution to Indian Art Music. Her creative ingenuity is evident from the huge repertoire of music composed by her – classical, semi-classical and devotional, in several Indian languages. This book provides glimpses into her life and work and also elaborates her perspectives on Indian Music.
