Early Life and Background :
Pandit Damodar Ramchandra Nimbargi (D.R.Nimbargi or Nimbargibuva) was born in a musical family in Jainapur, Karnataka in 1913. His grandfather Vishnubhat Nimbargi was a Rudra Veena player and his father Ramchandra Nimbargi was the priest in the town Ramtirtha. Mother Sitabai was a housewife. They used to live in Jamkhandi, Karnataka. Nimbargibuva had four brothers and three sisters.
Little Damodar had started going to school. He used to sing songs in school singing competitions and used to stand first. His voice was melodious. Everyone used to appreciate his voice. At that time Appasaheb (Sitaram) Patwardhan was a great leader and disciple of Mahatma Gandhi. One day Appasaheb listened to little Damodar singing and he liked it and told Damodar's father to teach his son from the eminent guru.
At that time Pt. Anant Manohar Joshi (also called Antubuva was a great singer and Guru of the Gwalior Gharana) from Aundh Sansthan which is presently popular as Satara Aundh. Little Damodar started learning at the age of 8 years from Antubuva till the coming 10 years. At the same time, Gajanan Joshi, the son of Antubuva was also learning along with Nimbargibuva.
