November was an action packed month, filled with travel and concerts in Chennai, Hyderabad and New Delhi. On behalf of the Saraswathi Veena, I was humbled to be the youngest to receive the prestigious Sangeet Shikar Samman bestowed by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Delhi on Nov 8th from Shri Rajiv Kumar, Vice-Chairman of NITI Ayog. You can read more about this from my website blog here
Season of Carnatic was a month long musical journey in November with a new episode discussing various ragams released daily!. It was quite a challenge to get it done in time but the reach and reception the series has received gives me immense satisfaction and all your warm wishes and feedback is very encouraging. You can watch the entire series on my YouTube Channel.
I’m very happy to launch the newsletter to stay connected with all of you. Watch for updates from me on upcoming concerts and news once or twice a month.
I wish you all a very healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.
Looking forward to keeping in touch!
Life is Musical,
