The Andhra Music Academy is organising its 7th Annual Music & Dance Festival from 24th to 29th January. The 6-day festival has some of best music vidhwans and most talented artistes of the current and the past generations performing, notably O S Thiyagarajan, Dr Yella Venkateshwara Rao, Akella Mallikarjuna Sarma, Garimella Balakrishna Prasad, Dwaram Durga Prasad and Satyanarayana Rao, the Hyderabad Brothers, Poosarla Manorama, Geeta Krishnamurthy, U Nagamani, Emani Lalithakrishna and Kumar Mardur.

Geetha Krishnamurthy, the wife of the Chief Election Commissioner T S Krishnamurthy, is a disciple of A Chitti Babu. She is at present under the tutelage of Nedunuri Krishnamurthy and the Hyderabad Brothers, for advanced training. She works as a lecturer in English at the Ethiraj College, Chennai.

She has performed at many places in India and is a recipient of the Veena Gana Mani title and the Emani Shankara Sastri award, instituted by the Tamil Isai Sanghom and the Narada Gana Sabha respectively.

The Andhra Music Academy was formed in 2001 to particularly sponsor, support and patronise music. In this endeavor, the academy has roped in some very eminent musicians into its advisory panel, like Dr Mangalampalli Balamurali Krishna, Dr Nookala Chinna Satyanarayana and Nedunuri Krishna Murthy. The academy organises and conducts various music festivals every year, and plans to soon organise these every month.

Every year, the prestigious awards of Sangeeta Vidyanidhi and Natya Vidyanidhi are conferred upon music and dancing legends. Dr Balamurali Krishna, Nedunuri, Nookala, M S Gopalakrishna, Annavarapu Ramaswamy, Pt Jasraj and Puranam Purushottama Sastry received the Sangeeta Vidyanidhi, while Vempati Chinna Satyam, Nataraja Ramakrishna and Vendantam Satyanarayana Sarma were the Natya Vidyanidhi awardees during the previous festivals.
