Upcoming Concerts by Carnatic Music Melbourne
Vocal Concert by Amrutha Varshini Ravisankar
Free Facebook Concert on the 19th of June 2021
Amrutha Varshini Ravisankar is an aspiring Carnatic musician born into a family of music connoisseurs. She is currently a B-grade artist from All India Radio.
True to the adage ‘Maatha Pithaa Guru Deivam’, Amrutha’s mother, Smt. Devi Kamakshi Ravisankar (a disciple of Smt. M.L.Vasanthakumari ) was her first guru although she was formally initiated into Carnatic music by her grandmother Gaanabhushanam Smt. Srimathi Rajagopalan (disciple of the great Shri. Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer and K.S. Narayanaswamy Iyer) who made sure her basics were in order.
Amrutha also trained with respectable gurus like Smt. Usha Bharadwaj and Smt. Lalitha Sivakumar. Into her early teens, Amrutha decided that she would pursue Carnatic music professionally and aspired to be a lifelong student of Carnatic music. Such clarity and deep affinity towards music might not have happened if not for the influence of guru Smt.
Dr. Manjula Sriram (disciple of Smt. Gowri Kuppuswamy) who was instrumental in tapping into Amrutha’s manodharma while adhering to the strict grammar of music.
After several years of rigorous training, constant learning, and listening to several consummate artistes, around 2010 another blessing happened; Amrutha had the good fortune to be accepted as a disciple of Nada Vallabha Smt.
Amrutha continues to strive for excellence emboldened by the training and blessings from her gurus and is determined to make them proud.
