On the occasion of the Devi Navratris, Shilparamam is presenting a Carnatic vocal recital by Swetha Prasad, on 21st October. With Renuka Prasad on the mridangam, Saikumar on the violin, Pramod Kumar on the flute, Srikanth on the tabla and Sridharacharya on the ghatam, Swetha will be reciting some Devi kritis.
Swetha started her journey into the world of music at the age of 4, receiving her first lessons in music from Ramalaxmi Rangachari, and thereafter from the renowned guru and musician Neti Srirama Sarma for the last 13 years. Impressing teachers and audiences alike, Sweta proved her skills in singing under the able guidance of Dr. Shobaraju, founder-president of Annamacharya Bhavana Vahini.
A gold medalist in Annamacharya kritis at national-level competitions conducted by the Annamacharya Bhavana Vahini, Swetha has also taken the top position on a number of occasions at music competitions conducted by famous organisations and sabhas.
She has traveled extensively all over India, and has also performed at USA and Bangladesh, winning the appreciation of audiences wherever she has performed. She has also sung as a playback singer for TV serials and movies, and has several music & dance cassettes to her credit.
Apart from traditional kutcheris, Swetha also lends her rich voice to the world of dance, providing vocal support to renowned dancers like Dr. Shobha Naidu, Swapna Sundari, Vanisree Jai Rama Rao, Swati Somnath and Alekhya Punjla, and has gone in all parts of India and abroad as part of this, including Turkey, China, Thailand, Japan and Belgrade.
