Desiya Ragas - Kiranavali Vidyasankar - Indian Classical Carnatic Vocal Concert
Sruti is pleased to present a Carnatic Vocal concert by Kiranavali Vidyasankar, accompanied by Kamalakiran Vinjamuri on Violin and Vinod Seetharaman on Mridangam.

Kiranavali commences her 2017 tour of North America with a special concert for Sruti that features a Ragam Tanam Pallavi with a 108 Carnatic ragas sprinkled across the various improvisational segments. A similar effort from Kiranavali earlier received sensational response from the discerning Chennai audience.

The short bios of the artists follow:

Award winning Carnatic musician Kiranavali Vidyasankar has charted out a unique identity for herself as a performer, scholar, teacher and writer. Under the watchful guidance of her brilliant father and guru, Chitravina Sri. Narasimhan, she started her musical journey by identifying over 200 ragas and 175 talas as a toddler of two. With training from two other illustrious gurus, her brother Chitravina Sri. Ravikiran and the late Sangita Kalanidhi Smt. T. Brinda, Kiranavali has established herself firmly as passionate vocalist and instrumentalist with a distinct voice and scholarship. Her career as a performer has taken her to many renowned centers across India, USA, Canada and Europe such as the National Center for Performing Arts (Mumbai), India International Center (New Delhi), India Habitat Center (New Delhi), The Music Academy (Chennai), Cleveland Tyagaraja Festival (Ohio), Bharati Kala Manram (Toronto), Ethnological Museum (Hamburg) and Reitberg Museum (Zurich). She has also been invited  to present numerous talks, lec-dems and workshops on various topics pertaining to Carnatic music. She is a gifted teacher and writer with a proven track record. She became the first musician to win a prestigious project grant from The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage in Philadelphia (2014). She is also the first Carnatic musician to receive three grants from the Pennsylvania Council on the Arts (2014 & 2016). She has additionally received titles and several awards for best performances.

Kamalakiran Vinjamuri is a rising star among the younger generation of the Indian diaspora in the United States. Exhibiting immense flair and interest in the violin from a very young age, he has over the last few years accompanied an array of Carnatic musicians at top notch festivals across North America and India. His gurus are his father, Subhash Vinjamuri and Sangita Kalanidhi A. Kanyakumari.

Vinod Seetharaman is a sought-after mridangam player belonging to the well-known Umayalpuram Sivaraman disciple lineage through his guru, Bangalore Arjun Kumar. He regularly accompanies all the well-known artists from India as well as the United States. He has also mentored and presented several percussion ensembles.
