Kala Vedika is presenting a Carnatic whistle concert by K Siva Prasad, on 1st January, at the Ravindra Bharathi auditorium. Accompanying him are Peri Thyagaraju on the violin, D S R Murthy on the mridangam and P V Ramana Murthy on the ghatam.

Whistling is a rare and specialised art in the world of music, and Siva Prasad has mastered it. Hailing from a family of scholars in arts & sciences, he received no formal initiation into the world of music, nor any special instruction. It was his own interest and enthusiasm for creating music through whistling that led him to where he is.

Komaravolu Prasad had the rare opportunity of receiving guidance from the legendary Carnatic vocalist Dr. M Balamurali Krishna. His meetings with the shehnai maestro Ustad Bismillah Khan inspired and rekindled in him a love and fascination for Hindustani Music. Added to this, the grammar and text of music imparted by the reputed flute vidwan N S Srinivasan also enriched his talent.

He has performed in over 1,000 concerts in India and in many parts of the world including Muscat, Dubai, Baharain, Qatar, Bangkok, Singapore, USSR, USA, Malaysia, Australia and Mauritius. He is also a recipient of several titles, such as Whistle Wizard by the Indian Express in the year 1981, Andhra Nightingale by M G Ramachandran in 1982, Mukha Murali by Ganapati Sachidananda Swami and Swasa Murali by Padmabhushan Dr. C Narayana Reddy. In 1997, Siva Prasad was given the Ugadi Puraskar for the year 2002 by the Chief Minister of Andhra Pradesh.

Kala Vedika is a socio-cultural organisation started in the year 1980, based in Gandhinagar. Its activities include promoting music and dance artistes, and sponsoring education for poor students, among others.
