Bombay Jayashri Ramnath has been chosen for the fourth Indira Sivasailam Endowment Medal and Concert.
With a unique blend of adherence to the core tradition of classical Carnatic music and a ceaseless quest for quality music in any form, Bombay Jayashri Ramnath is the new generation musician of India. She has been trained under the legendary musicians Lalgudi G Jayaraman and T R Balamani.
With a career of over two decades, Jayashri is today among the top Carnatic musicians. Her work has won her the acclaim of not only rasikas, but also prestigious institutions in India and abroad. Her training in Hindustani Classical has further widened her repertoire.
Jayashri has performed across the globe, drawing extensive critical acclaim.
She has the rare privilege of being the first classical Carnatic artiste to perform at the Opera House in Durban and in Helsinki, Finland.
Additionally, she contributes and involves herself with schools for workshops and interactive sessions on Carnatic music, to kindle interest amongst school children into our rich tradition of music. She has also worked in film music, which has drawn a new class of listeners into the world of classical music.
The Indira Sivasailam Endowment Concert will be held at The Music Academy on October 12 during the Navarathri season.
