For Panditji music is life tradition, the soul. It is his strict classicism and refusal to compromise with what is popular has earned him the reputation of being one of the only true representatives of his gharana.

Pt. Laxman Krishnarao Pandit represents the Gwalior gharana (school) of Hindustan classical music – the oldest tradition and the fountainhead of all subsequent gharanas. Born on 5 March 1934 into a family of musicians, Panditji is the fifth in an  unbroken lineage of legendary musicians. His grandfather, Pt. Shankarrao Pandit, was a direct disciple of  the founder of the Gwalior gharana – Ustad Haddu, Nathu and Nissar Hussain Khan. His father Padma Bhushan Pt. Krishnarao Shankar Pandit trained Panditji since early childhood in khayal, tappa, tarana, ashtapadi and thumri.

The accuracy of his notes is legendary,and his Khayal style unparalleled.  He follows the Gwalior gharana formate faithfully, and develops ragas in Ashtaang gayaki, (a systematic eight-fold elaboration of the raga).Which are alap-behlawa, bol-alap, taan, bol-taans, layakari, gamak, meend-soot, murki-khatka-jamjama, with its varieties. He combines sound Knowledge of ragas with masterly handling of rhythm, which makes climaxing at the 'sam' a unique experience each time.

Laxman Pandit is one of the few musician today who can render the difficult genre of tappa with ease and fluidity. Tappa is the most taxing form of singing and demands instant, protracted moves up and down the saptak (octave), which calls for constant innovation, apart from superb breath-holding holding capacity.

Panditji's repertoire includes a treasure house of some of the rarest, ancient and most beautiful bandishes (compositions), handed down to him by his illustrious ancestors. To make sure that these do not go into oblivion, some have been recorded by the Ford Foundation, Sangeet Natak Acakemi, Samvad Foundation, All India Radio and other archival institutional.

Besides being an excellent performer, Panditji's contribution to music is his excellence and throughness as a Guru(teacher).  He was associated with the Faculty of Music and Fine Arts,Delhi University, as Professor and as Producer (music) with the All India Radio.

He has presented a popular serial on classical music appreciation, Prabhati, for television which was first of its kind. He is a serious scholar, and is currently engaged in documenting the style and compositions of his gharana, with a view to preserve them for posterity.

Panditji has given several thousands of concerts, radio and television performances in India and abroad and has a number of commercial releases to his credit. He is a Fellow and member of several distinguishes musical committees.

For his immense contribution in the field of performances, propagation among the masses, Panditji has been bestowed with many awards and honours. A few amongst them are:
