The Sharada Cultural Trust is presenting its 18th Annual Cultural Festival and 161st Aradhana of Satguru Saint Thyagaraja Swamy, from 26th January to 3rd February, at the Keyes High School for Girls, Secunderabad. The 9-day festival will feature music concerts daily at 6:30pm by many renowned musicians such as R Santanagopalan, Kumaresh & Ganesh, the Chinmaya Sisters, Pantula Rama, Rajani & Gayathri, S P Ram and R Suriya Prakash.

Today, the second day, violin duo Ganesh and Kumaresh will perform a violin duet. They will be supported on the mridangam by Patri Satish and on the ghatam by P V Ramana Murthy.

Ganesh and Kumaresh – the ace violin duo of Carnatic Music - hit the headlines in 1972 with their very first stage appearance at the ages of 7 and 5 respectively. Over 3 decades hence, the brothers have more than lived up to the promise they showed at that debut, carving a niche for themselves in a field where violin playing has been taken to heights of international excellence by great Carnatic maestros.

Trained by their father Rajagopalan, an excellent artiste in his own right, Ganesh and Kumaresh completed their 100th stage appearance before the younger brother was 10 years of age. They are the youngest violinists to be recognized by the All India Radio as A-Top artistes. Kalaimamani, Sunaadha Sironmani, Sangeetha Saragnya and the Dwaram Venkata Swami Naidu Award are some of the many titles that have been heaped on them.

Ganesh is also an A-grade vocalist, who gives full-fledged vocal music concerts and has won the admiration of laymen and connoisseurs alike, and has been embellishing his violin concerts with splashes of vocal music that have been much raved about. He has also accompanied great stalwarts like Dr Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer, Dr Bala Murali Krishna, T N Seshagopalan, T V Shankaranarayanan and Maharajapuram Santhanam.

The violin duo performed extensively in USA, Canada, Germany, France, Belgium, Switzerland, Middle-East, South East Asia, Maldives, Australia and many more countries. And they have taken the audio world by storm with the releases of albums including Uthsav, Vasantham, Nada Tarangini, Shantham, Anantham and Manoranjani.

The entry is free. Please contact Sharada Krishnan at 2786-0680/2780-1662/92461-54482 for further details.
