The South India Cultural Association (SICA) is presenting the 52nd Annual Festival of Music and Dance from 18th to 22nd March, and Drama on 28th & 29th March, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. As a part of the festival, a senior vocalist from Chennai, Sudha Raghunathan, will perform a Carnatic vocal concert on the 5th day.

Raghunathan inherited her interest in music from her mother, Choodamani, and began her formal training at the age of 9. Later, she learnt from T V Viswanathan and B V Lakshman for a brief period. She came under the tutelage of the illustrious Padmavibushan Sangeetha Kalanidhi Dr. M L Vasanthakumari in 1977, when she won a Central Government Scholarship given to young artistes for advanced training in music. With her encouragement, Raghunathan pursued music as a career, and also provided vocal support to Dr. M L V for a decade. She is considered Dr. M L V's 'vaaris' by music lovers.
