On the occasion of the 600th birth anniversary of Saint Annamacharya, the Annamacharya Project of the Tirumala Tirupati Devastanams, together with Chaitanya Art Theatres, is presenting a music festival of Annamacharya keertanas, from 1st to 25th January, at Sri Venkateshwara Temple, Liberty X Road. Today, the final day, Garimella Balakrishna Prasad, the Asthana Gayaka of the Tirumala Tirupati Devastanam at Tirupati for the last 25 years, will sing some Annamayya keertanas.

Garimella Balakrishna Prasad is synonymous with Annamayya keertanas, and is the uncrowned king in the field of devotional music. His soulful renditions are vibrant, vivacious and virtuous, and filled with bhakti and bhava. He has sung more than 500 Annamacharya sankeerthanas in nearly 150 ragas, covering all styles - viz., Carnatic classical, light classical, folk and light music. He has composed more than 200 krithis, varnams & tillanas, apart from more than 300 songs of Annamacharya and hundreds of other modern lyrics.

Prasad, a diploma holder in Carnatic vocal music and a graded artist of AIR, has been into the fold of the Annamacharya project of TTD as a special graded vocal artist. His first and foremost gurus were his parents late Krishnaveni and late Garimella Narasimha Rao, with the latter being a music teacher as well as a vaggeyakara. He then trained under Sangeetha Kalanidhi Nedumuri Krishna Murthy. Later, he had some lessons under Padmasri Dr. Mangalampalli Bala Murali Krishna. He also had the privilege of being a disciple of Prof. D Pasupathy for some time.

He has given innumerable performances all over India, under the TTD Annamacharya Project. He also performed under the sponsorship of the Sri Annamacharya Project of North America, Chicago, and the Sri Venkateswara Society of America, Los Angeles, in 1997.

He was awarded the titles of Annamacharya Vidwanmani in Chicago & Annamacharya Nada Jyothi in Los Angeles. He was also conferred upon the Gana Kala Visarada title in Vijayawada for the 7-day Sankeerthana Yagnam, where he sang 216 songs. The Academy of Fine Arts of Tirupati gave him The Spirit Of Excellence award in 1999 during the Golden Jubilee celebrations of Indian Independence. The Delhi Telugu Academy conferred upon him the title "Enchanting Singer" in 2001.
