Tamils - a Trans State Nation..

"To us all towns are one, all men our kin.
Life's good comes not from others' gift, nor ill
Man's pains and pains' relief are from within.
Thus have we seen in visions of the wise !."
Tamil Poem in Purananuru, circa 500 B.C

Veenai Jayanthi Kumaresh

Veena Jayanthi Kumaresh

From Profile at http://www.veenaijayanthi.org/

Veenai Jayanthi Kumaresh was born into the legendary Lalgudi family, a family replete with renowned musicians. Jayanthi started learning the Veena when she was barely four years old. Her main inspiration to learn the Veena was her aunt and Guru Smt. Padmavathi Ananthagopalan, who is a very reknowned and accomplished artiste.

Her virtuosity on the instrument, rare musical insight, rich tonal quality and strict adherence to tradition has won her the appreciation of the layman and connoisseur alike.

When the legendary Veena Virtuoso Padmabhushan Dr.S. Balachander heard Jayanthi play, he said that she had a rare gift and talent, and extracted a promise from young Jayanthi that she would do full justice to her potential. He started giving her advanced lessons in the art of Veena playing, which Jayanthi treasures as some of the most precious moments of her life.

Her beloved Uncle, a giant among musicians, Shri. Lalgudi Jayaraman, has also guided her in her musical journey.

�Veenai Jayanthi�, as she is affectionately called by her rasikas, has carved a special place for herself in the world of music with her dedication and perseverance coupled with the blessings of her gurus.
