On the occasion of the Devi Navaratris, Sri Sringeri Shankarmath at Nallakunta is organising a grand veena recital by Ayyagari Syamsundar and Ayyagari Jayalakshmi Syamsundar, on 14th October. With M Lakshmi Narayana Raju on the mridangam and M Haribabu on the ghatam, the veena duo will start the recital with Muthuswamy Dikshithar's Kanjadalayasakshi in Kamala Manohari ragam, followed by Anandamruthakarshini in Amruthavarshini ragam, Sri Varalakshmi in Sri ragam, Shyama Sastry's Neerajakshi Kamalakshi in Hindola ragam, Sarojadala Netri in Shankarabharanam, and a couple of other Devi keertanas.

Ayyagari Syamsundar was born in 1948, and belongs to the music family of Vizianagaram. His father Ayyagari Someshwara Rao was also a veena vidhwan, and his mother was the sister of another veena vidhwan, Pappu Someshwara Rao. Syamsundar's wife Jayalakshmi Syamsundar was the daughter of Pappu Someshwara Rao, and so talent came naturally to the husband-wife duo.

Both Ayyagari Syamsundar and Ayyagari Jayalakshmi Syamsundar were the disciples of their fathers, Ayyagari Someshwara Rao and Pappu Someshwara Rao respectively. Syamsundar accompanied his father to many concerts in India and abroad. He has completed his diploma in vocal and veena from Andhra University. He has been an A-grade artiste of the All-India Radio for the last 30 years.

He was adjudged the Best Veena Artiste of 1978 by the Madras Academy and of 1979 by the Krishna Gana Sabha. He also received the National Award for the music ballet Nadabandham. He served as a lecturer in various music colleges of Andhra Pradesh for 17 years, and retired as Principal of the Government Music College, Vijayawada, last year. He has more than 200 disciples. The husband-wife duo are quite talented in controlling the instrument, and can play any most complex raga with utmost ease.
