Maverick musician T. M. Krishna has the uncanny knack of hitting the headlines. Time without number, he has managed this. Now, the Carnatic vocalist is in the eye of a storm over his ready-to-be-released book Sabestian & Sons: A Brief History of Mrdgangam Makers. It is being published by Westland.
Carnatic vocalists C. Lalitha and C. Saroja have been chosen for the prestigious Padma Shri award by the Centre.

An erudite scholar, Sangitha Kalanidhi-designate S. Sowmya is a traditionalist's delight. A copy-book stylist, she is a no show-woman. She has a no-nonsense approach to music.
He wears a deceptive personality. When on stage, however, Abhishek Raghuram is an artist par excellence. What stands out in the vocalist Abhishek is his total immersion into the job on hand.
It was an inspired performance. Bombay Jayashri signed off season 2019 in style when she gave a concert for Narada Gana Sabha on the penultimate day of year 2019.
