The octogenarian debonair Pandit Bhimsen Joshi, the last of the giants, who has represented Kirana brilliantly, has occupied the top place among the Hindusthani vocalists for the last 30 years, after the death of Ustd. Bade Gulam Ali Khan and Ustd. Amir Khan. He has a deep and powerful voice, unlike Abdul Karim Khan, who had a high pitched piping voice. Pt. Bhimsen Joshi has also reduced the vistar of his predecessors to sizeable proportions. While Kirana gharanites give preference to sur over taal i.e. rhythmic vigorous and very fast, have slowed dwn with age, but his total presentation has remained as neat as ever.

He has given the style of Kirana Gharana, a polish and a bloom, which became the envy of all vocalists. His voice production, pukars, the uniqueness of his gayaki and the soulful quality of his music combine to build up a mesmerizing atmosphere, which was not averse to influences of his contemporaries or Ustads of different Gharanas, which have led to the dynamic growth of this Kirana Style.
