PREVIEW FOR JUGALBANDI BY ANOORADHA SRIRAM AND SRIRAM PARASURAM FOR SICA
Jugalbandis among couples are no strange occurrences, and neither are people
gathering to watch them. What makes this couple different is that people are actually
paying for a ringside view of this!
As part of SICA's 42nd Annual Festival of Music and Dance, the eminent vocalist husband and wife duo Sriram Parasuram and Anooradha Sriram will present a jugalbandi (Hindustani and Carnatic) on the last day of the festival. This will be a comparative presentation of equivalent ragas - the Carnatic and the Hindustani systems.
Sriram is famous for mesmerizing audiences by his sheer musical exuberance, and Anooradha, for her melody. Sriram, the second of three brothers, is a vocalist and a violinist. Formally trained in Carnatic, Hindustani and Western classical music, Sriram is now pursuing his doctorate in Ethnomusicology (world music) from Wesleyan University, USA. Wife Anooradha Sriram is a popular playback and pop singer. The couple have teamed up as composers and presented a number of concerts together.
