Birthname : Padmashri Hariharan
Mini Biography :

Hariharan grew up in Mumbai, and has bachelor degrees in science and law. The son of renowned Carnatic vocalists, Shrimati Alamelu and the late H.A.S. Mani (full name:anantha Subramani Iyer), Hariharan inherited his parents’ musical talents. Alamelu was Hariharan’s first guruji (mentor). From here he picked up Carnatic music skills. He was also exposed to Hindustani music from a young age. In his teens, inspired by the songs of Mehdi Hassan and Jagjit Singh, Hariharan developed a passion for ghazals and started training in Hindustani music from Ustad Ghulam Mustafa Khan. He used to put in nine hours of singing practice everyday. The committed Hariharan also put heart and soul into learning Urdu when he decided to become a ghazal singer. He has perfected his Urdu diction to such standards that even his audiences in Lucknow, the heartland of the language, have been wowed over.

In 1977, Hariharan bagged the top prize in the All-India Sur Singaar competition and was promptly signed on by the late music director Jaidev to sing for the Hindi film Gaman. His debut song “Ajeeb Saane He Mujh Par Qarar” in that movie became such a hit that it won Hariharan an Uttar Pradesh state award, as well as a Best Singer National Award nomination, and Hariharan’s playback singing career took off.
Hariharan (born 3 April 1955 in Puthan Theruvu (Thiruvananthapuram), Kerala) is an Indian playback singer in Hindi, Tamil, Malayalam, & Telugu movies, an established ghazal singer, and one of the pioneers of Indian fusion music.
