The Uttaraa Centre For Performing Arts is organising the Venugaana Rangapravesam (flute) of Shrikari Rao on the 31st of January at Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha. A disciple of Vamshi Vinodini Jayaprada Ramamurthy, Shrikari is a child prodigy who has excelled in the art forms of the bamboo flute, Bharatanatyam and Carnatic vocal.
Shrikari S Rao initially joined The Uttaraa Centre For Performing Arts to learn classical dance under the renowned Bharatanatyam exponent, Abhinaya Kala Ratna Guru Geetha Ganesan. Later, she came under the tutelage of the popular flute artiste, Guru Jayaprada Ramamurthy. She later commenced pursuit of Carnatic Classical music from Prema Ramamurthy.
Shrikari has taken to playing the Carnatic Music on the bamboo flute, a rarity amongst girls. She has participated in several flute and dance programs of the institute, apart from performing solo on various occasions.
Shrikari has the unique distinction of having performed for the past 7 anniversaries of Uttaraa, for both flute and dance recitals. She is currently pursuing her Class VIII at St. Ann's High School, Tarnaka.
