Sadguru Thyagaraja Sampradaya Seva Samithi is presenting Sri Thyagaraja Music Festival from 31st January to 2nd February, at Kala Subbarao Kala Vedika, the mini hall of Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha in Chikkadpally. Today, the inaugural day, N Ananda Rajyalakshmi will be performing a veena recital, and supporting her will be P Durga Kumar on the mridangam.

Ananda Rajyalakshmi Chavan has been a lecturer in music at the Sri Thyagaraja Government College Of Music And Dance, Ramkote, for 20 years now, and is an A-grade artiste of the All-India Radio.

She has performed at several places like Vizag, Vijayawada, Srikakulam, Rajahmundry, Goa, Bangalore, Bijapur, Berhampur, Puri and Jeypore (Orissa), besides at Hyderabad. She founded the Ananda Mahati Music Academy about 6 years ago, dedicated to popularising the veena.

The Sadguru Thyagaraja Sampradaya Seva Samithi was established about a decade ago by Puranam Purushothama Sastry. Sastry is a senior vocalist, born in 1925. He completed the Sangeeta Vidhwan Certification course from the Central College Of Carnatic Music, Chennai. In Chennai, he also trained under Sangeeta Kalanidhi Musri Subrahmanya Iyer for ten years, and in the process became the 6th generation disciple of the Saint Thyagaraja line.

Now 83 years of age, he has more than six decades of singing experience, and has toured many countries. Musicians take it as a privilege to accompany him, and legends like Lalgudi Jayaraman, Palghat Raghu, Akella Mallikarjuna Sarma, Dr M Bala Muralikrishna, Umayalpuram K Sivaraman, T V Gopalakrishnan, Dwaram Durgaprasad, Komunduri Seshadri and the like have accompanied him.
