Mambalam sisters, Hyderabad sisters, Sattur sisters, Priya sisters, and the list simply has no end. Ranjani and Gayatri are the latest in the brigade, a Chennai duo with voices as delightful as a flock of warblers.

Soon they advanced to learning the Veena from Sangeeta Bhooshanam Sri T S Krishnaswami and vocal from Padmabhushan Sangeeta Kala Acharya Sri P S Narayanaswamy.
