Sarangi along with Margazhi.org is happy to announce that S. Sowmya is the Artist of the Month for September.
A Carnatic musician by profession, Sowmya’s life has been soaked in melody from the very beginning. Growing up in a traditional South Indian family, she had her initial tutelage in music from her father Dr. Srinivasan, a Chemical Engineer with an enduring passion for Karnaataka Sangeetham. Later Sowmya was singularly fortunate to have been taken under the wings of Sangita Kalanidhi Dr. S. Ramanathan – exemplary musician, esteemed musicologist and extraordinary human being. Sowmya received further training from Smt. T. Muktha, of the legendary Brinda-Muktha duo. One of the most well-regarded Carnatic musicians today, Sowmya sincerely believes that she owes all her success and achievements till today to these individuals, as well as the grace and blessings of her “ishta deivam” Ambal – the Goddess Kamakshi of Kanchipuram. Sowmya’s desire to propagate the traditions of South Indian music worldwide led her to establish Carnatica, an institution dedicated to music & dance instruction, archival, talent search and other related activities. Carnatica ’s web portal is now a popular online destination for music-related information and discussions.
Sarangi – as a patron of Classical Indian performing arts and sponsor of Margazhi.org is proud to have an accomplished artist such as Sowmya as Margazhi.org’s Artist of the Month this September. We invite you to join us for a special breakfast meet for an interactive session with Sowmya at 8:30 am on Saturday, the 21st of September at Paduka’s Alwarpet store.
