The South-Indian Cultural Association (SICA) is organising a grand recital of veena by D Srinivas, on 17th August, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. He will be accompanied by Mangalampally Surya Deepti on the violin, M L N Raju on the mridangam and P V Ramana Murthy on the ghatam.

D Srinivas, once a child prodigy in the veena, was born in a family of musicians at Hyderabad. His mother D L Tulasi was a popular veena artiste, and having identified Srinivas' taste in and talent for the instrument, initiated and encouraged him to pursue and master the art.

Srinivas gave his maiden concert at the age of 9 for the All-India Radio, Hyderabad. He is a disciple of Vidwan N S Srinivasan, who was his guru and master architect, and who introduced him as an artiste with laudable individual traits. Srinivas was a scholarship holder from the Andhra Pradesh Sangeeta Nataka Academy for 6 years. He has participated in almost all the prestigious Gana Sabhas, and has been the recipient of many awards for his performances.

Srinivas holds the record of being the youngest A-grade veena artiste to play at the National Program of Music, relayed live all over the nation from the studios of All India Radio, Hyderabad. He has also presented many a classical symphony concert, using Indian classical instruments.

He performed for the President of India, the Prime Minister of India, the Singapore Prime Minister, the Indo-German Business Summit, Japanese business delegates, the Mauritius Prime Minister, the World Bank President and the Indo-Asean Business Summit delegates, to name a few. He also has the titles of Veena Vidwanmani, Veena Praveena and Raga Sudhakara to his credit.

SICA was founded in 1959 by Dewan Bahadur Aramuda Iyengar, the Finance Minister of Hyderabad's Nizam and a great patron of Carnatic music. The association has since organised more than 1,000 concerts. It has provided a basic platform for upcoming artistes like U P Raju and Nagamani, Mandolin Srinivas and the Malladi Brothers. It conducts workshops, felicitates artistes, and provides both moral and financial support to upcoming artistes. Dr S Chakravarthy, IAS, former Chief Secretary to the Govt. Of AP, is the current President of the association, and R Chakrapani is the General Secretary.

The entry to the concert is by invitations for members - members of the general public need to buy donor passes of Rs. 25 or Rs. 50 per head. Please contact V Ramachandran at 92461-61420 for further details.
