Jayanthi Kumaresh Veena Artist Profile

Jayanthi has been enthralling audiences the world over with her graceful, emotive and expressive music for the last 25 years. The Statesman, a well acclaimed daily quotes that Jayanthi is "The best and most versatile Veena artiste we have today."

Born into a family where music has been the mainstay for the last seven generations, Jayanthi started playing the Veena when she was barely 3. Winning her way through several laurels and awards right from her childhood, Jayanthi was soon one of the youngest artistes in Veena to receive A-TOP grading from All India Radio (the highest grade offered by the only grading body in India).

In recognition of her artistry, the Government of Tamilnadu has honoured her with the title of Kalaimamani. She has also been the recipient of prestigious awards like the Best Main Musician, Best Veena concert of the year, Sathyashree, Veena Nada Mani and the like.

Jayanthi has been invited by prestigious organisations across the world like Theatre de la Ville in Paris, the UN and World Music Centre in New York, Music Guimet in Paris, Woodstock in the United States, Indo-German Societies, the Indian embassy at Sharjah and several such platforms to represent the National instrument of India – the Saraswathi Veena.

Apart from solo performances, Jayanthi has performed several jugalbandhis and has also collaborated with musicians from other types of music in her own World music band called Indian Spice. As a composer, Jayanthi has scored music for a host of dance productions and musicals that have premiered in India and abroad, including Krishna Bhakthi, Abbakarani and Jagadguru Adi Shankaracharya. She has also composed for the National South Asian Youth orchestra of the UK.

The Indian National Orchestra is Jayanthi's brainchild – a first-of-its-kind organization that showcases the best musical talent from around the country, the INO strives to promote musical unity in cultural diversity, comprehensively represent India's vast and varied musical heritage and bring together prominent musicians to perform in one voice and with one purpose.
