Neeharika Institute Of Dance And Music is organising its annual music & dance festival on 21st, 22nd and 23rd of March, at the Lalitha Kala Thoranam in Public Gardens. The 3-day festival will feature some top musicians in whistle wizard K Siva Prasad, the Hyderabad Sisters, legendary mridangist Dr. Yella Venkateshwara Rao, and dancers in Dr. Alekhya Punjla, Vyjayanthi Kashi and Vedantam Ramalinga Sastry.

Today, the 2nd day, the Hyderabad Sisters will be performing a Carnatic vocal duet, the first recital for the day. They will be accompanied by Dwaram Satyanarayana Rao on the violin and D S R Murthy on the mridangam.

The Hyderabad Sisters, Lalitha and Haripriya, were born in 1950 and 1952 respectively, and were disciples of T G Padmanabham, belonging to the Alathur Sishya parampara. They are A-grade artists of AIR and DD, and have given innumerable classical vocal Carnatic concerts. They have featured quite a few times in the national programs of music, the radio sangeet sammelans and the special programs of DD, and have performed extensively in all prestigious music sabhas in India and abroad.

The Spirit Of Unity concerts have presented their concerts several times. And like you may expect, the awards have just overflowed, with the prominent being the prestigious Saptagiri Sangeeta Vidhwanmani Award from TTD Tirupati, and the Raja Annamalai Award of the Madras Music Academy. The sisters have released several cassettes, too.

The popular duo have strong, pleasing voices which blend well. Verve in presentation, fidelity to laya and well-planned concerts add to their popularity. They combine well; their brika-based voice is sweet and their rendition is satisfying. Haripriya is qualified in Law, too.

Their concerts are absorbing and entertaining - the delineation of ragas is impressive, and the swara prastara is well-conceived and structured. It is said that the sisters follow the style of the Alathur Brothers.
