S3 EP6 Jyotsna Srikanth
Srikanth is adept at both Carnatic and Western traditions with parallel eloquence. This recital of Srikanth is a celebration of her unfazed dexerity and soulfulness with which she plays Raag Bahudari and Raag Saraswati. She chooses to have two mridangam players on stage breaking the monotony and creating a refreshing sound. She is accompanied by HS Sudhindra and Neyveli Venkatesh on stage. There is a crisp, stately taniavartanam (interactive percussion duet) played by the mridangams towards the end.
Srikanth is the most sought-after Carnatic violinist and composer in Europe, known for her versatility and ability to collaborate with different genres seamlessly. She is intensely rooted in Carnatic classical music alongside having formal western classical music education.
Neyveli Venkatesh is a Chennai-based musician. His rhythm training began under his father AS Balaramanan, and continued under PP Venkatesan and MN Kandaswamy Pillai. His promising career has already featured top accompaniment slots and numerous collaborations, and he is renowned for superb solo performances.
HS Sudhindra has learned Carnatic percussions from two widely respected mridangam players from India - M. Vasudeva Rao and Srimushnam V. Raja Rao. He started to perform at the age of thirteen and has had a spectacular career till date.
