Pt. Vinayak Torvi is a well known artiste of the country who has carved a niche for himself in the realm of music. Gifted with powerful resonant voice with rare rhythm and rich melody , he has been capturing music lovers all over.

When gold emerges through fire, it is burnished with fierce pure light. Similarly, this talented Hindustani musician has acquired his melodic dazzle after years of severe discipline.

Born on the auspicious day of Shri Ganesh Chaturthi on 4th September, 1948, in the family of Keertankaars, he absorbed the 'Samskar' of music. A child prodigy, blessed with parents loving encouragement and deep involvement in music, Vinayak began early lessons at a tender age of nine, from Vidwan Tammanna Gurav and then continued with Vidwans Narayanachar Dandapur and Narayanrao Muzumdar of Dharwad.

What groomed him into this perfect singer are his twelve years of gurukulavasa under Gayanacharya Gururao Deshpande who was the doyen of 'Gwalior Gharana'. He absorbed the intense, intricate treasures of classical music in the Gwalior as well as Agra Gayaki, from Gururao.

Vinayak's school and college days were studded with awards and prizes in the music. But further laurels were in store for this hard working, dedicated young artiste. A commerce graduate, he joined Canara Bank and today he serves as a manager.

Torvi acquired Bachelor's and Master's degrees in music securing first rank, from Karnatak University, Dharwad. As a post graduate student at the university, he had the rare fortune of tutelage of stalwarts like Gangubai Hangal, Pt. Basavaraj Rajaguru and Pt. Mallikarjuna Mansoor.

Talented Torvi well utilised this exposure to various styles of music and molded his singing to emerge as a versatile full fledged musician. With his unique voice culture, he is proficient in presenting varieties of ragas with due justice. He has composed many Bandish and Taranas. He also excels in light classical music and bhakti sangeet in Kannada, Marathi and Hindi. He is an acclaimed AIR (All India Radio) and Doordarshan artiste. He has participated in major music conferences and festivals all over India.
