Ranjani-Gayatri  Carnatic concert vocalists  Profile

Born into a family deeply involved in classical music, Ranjani and Gayatri’s musical talents were discovered at a very early age. The sisters, even as toddlers, showed an uncanny capacity to grasp the subtle nuances of Carnatic music. Gayatri could identify over a hundred ragas when she was barely two and a half and Ranjani could delineate complex Ragam-Tanam-Pallavi-s when she was barely five years old. Their formal vocal training commenced under their mother, Smt.Meenakshi an accomplished Carnatic vocalist. They started their violin training at the age of nine and six respectively from Sangita Bhooshanam Prof. T.S. Krishnaswami at the Shanmukhananda Sangeeta Vidyalaya, Mumbai. Their musical values gained shape and direction under the watchful guidance of their father and mentor Sri.N.Balasubramanian.

Ranjani and Gayatri’s musical career was launched as they barely reached their teens. The sisters’ first concert was for the prestigious Indian Music Group, Mumbai in 1986, at the age of thirteen and ten respectively. Through their intense training and fine artistry, they quickly established themselves as top-class violinists of international repute. The sisters achieved spectacular success as violin duet performers, and subsequently they also proved successful as most sought after violin accompanists. Both Ranjani and Gayatri have accompanied various artistes on the violin, including the legendary D.K.Pattammal, M.Balamurali Krishna, T.Vishwanathan and other popular, leading musicians of their generation. They are the recipients of the Government of India Talent Search Scholarship from the age of ten and winners of the first prize in the All India Radio National Competition for Violin. They received the title of “Sangeeta Shanmukha Mani” conferred by Shanmukhananada Fine Arts and Sangeeta Vidyalaya, Mumbai, and won the Outstanding Violinists Award for four consecutive years from the Music Academy, Chennai from 1994 to 1998.

Ranjani and Gayatri shifted from Mumbai to Chennai, the Mecca of Carnatic music in the year 1993. Subsequently, they started learning from Padma Bhushan Sri.P.S.Narayanaswamy. They started giving vocal concerts since 1997 and soon won high praise from discerning critics and music lovers all over the globe. Their music, imbued with a deep and abiding classicism, has been described as an exhilarating blend of vitality, melody and emotion. Their concerts have been featured in all prominent sabhas in the December Music Festival in Chennai, and at premier institutions and prestigious festivals all over India. Ranjani and Gayatri are one of the most sought after vocalists today and their concerts are instant sell-outs. They have performed abroad widely in countries including the United States of America, Canada, Singapore, Malaysia, United Kingdom, Australia and the Middle East.
