Music Academy award for veena vidushi Kalyani Ganesan

Mylaporean and veena vidushi Kalyani Ganesan has been chosen by The Music Academy for the prestigious┬áT.T.K. Award. The award, besides others like the prestigious Sangita Kalanidhi award will be given on January 1, 2019 at the end of the Academy’s conference and concerts.

A high grade artiste and a respected guru, music has been part of the family’s histories – her husband plays the mridangam and daughter Subha sings and teaches. They run the Hamsanadam Music School in this area.

A teacher for over 25 years ( TN Music College where she was professor of veena ) and stints in Singapore) and an artiste who has travelled to many venues, locally and abroad, Kalyani follows a classical gamaka style and appeals to the rasikas who prefer the pure classical style.

The husband-wife duo continue to perform. And take classes. Kalyanai was born and raised in Mylapore – a Mylaporean since 1949.
