Today, the 2nd day, the famed Hyderabad Brothers will entertain the music rasikas of town with their vocal duet. The Hyderabad Brothers, D Seshachari & D Raghavachari, hail from Hyderabad. Born in a family of musicians, they received their initial training under the guidance of their father Sangeeta Sahitya Vidwan Daroor Ratnamacharyulu and mother Sulochana Devi. They perfected their training under Late Susarla Sivaram at the Government College of Music in Hyderabad.

Their style of singing resembles that of the great Alathur Brothers, and singing together, the duo have always held the fascination of Carnatic music lovers. Seshachari is a staff artiste with AIR, Hyderabad, and is also an accomplished mridangam player, while Raghavachari works at the National Mineral Development Corporation.

Seshachari is the younger of the siblings, and is more of an extrovert, while Raghavachari is content playing the quieter role. The Hyderabad brothers have performed in all major institutions, festivals & sabhas in India. They have also performed at the Madras Music Academy, the Krishna Gana Sabha, the Mylapore Fine Arts Club, the Indian Fine Arts Society, and other sabhas of repute. They have also given innumerable concerts for AIR & Doordarshan.
