Sangeetha Ksheerasagaram, in association with Vignana Samithi, Vijayanagar Fine Arts and Sujana Ranjani, is organising Sangeetha Neerajanam, a music festival in memory of Gana Dheera late Puranam Purushottama Sastry, from 26th March to 2nd April.

Madhumita and Sushmita will be performing a Carnatic vocal on the penultimate day of the festival, at 6pm. They will be accompanied by Kolanka Sai Kumar on the violin and A Srinivas on the mridangam.

Madhumita & Sushmita are 22-year-old twins studying BA final year at the Kasturba College, Secunderabad. They are both disciples of violinist Dwaram Poosarla Manorama, the grand-daughter of the late violin maestro Dwaram Venkatasami Naidu.

They have completed their 6-year diploma in Carnatic vocal from the Potti Sreeramulu Telugu University (Hyderabad) with distinction, in June 2006. Madhumita is also a recipient of the CCRT scholarship for advanced training, for 2007-2009. They were selected in June 2007 as Yuvavani artistes of All-India Radio. They have been performing at various sabhas and venues for the last 2 years in Hyderabad.

Puranam Purushottama Sastry, in whose memory this festival is being held, was a Carnatic vocalist, born into a music-oriented family in the year 1925. He trained under Sangeeta Kalanidhi the late Musiri Subrahmanya Iyer for 10 years, and in the process, became the 6th generation disciple of the Saint Thyagaraja line. He was awarded the Central Scholarship, and was also selected for All-India Radio without any audition. He had inputs of music from D K Rangachary and Tiger Varadachary.

He received several awards and titles, with the Hamsa Award by the Government of Andhra Pradesh ranking foremost. He is the founder of Sadguru Thyagaraja Sampradaya Seva Samithi, a voluntary organisation promoting Saint Thyagaraja's music. He was interested in astrology, and imparted his services free of cost. And even though he never took to teaching music as a profession, he taught musicians at no cost.
