Popular singers, Kalaimamani K.N.Shashikiran and P.Ganesh sing together as Carnatica Brothers. The duo is very successful as performers, mentors and scholars in music. With over 4500 concert performances to their credit across India,US, UK, Australia, they are one of the most famous and sought- after singers across the world.
Grandsons of the legendary Gottuvadyam Narayana Iyengar, Shashikiran and Ganesh stunned the music lovers answering technical questions in music and identifying complex talas and ragas when they were just 30 months old ! With intense training under Shashikiran's father Chitravina Narasimhan, brother Chitravina Ravikiran and later from Sangitha Kalanidhi T Brinda, T Vishwanathan Calcutta K S Krishnamurthy and lately from Dr M Balamuralikrishna, the cousins have had a steady rise to stardom in the field of Carnatic music.
Besides singing, Ganesh plays the Chitravina too ! The brothers love teaching music so much so that Shashikiran's research in music revolves around learning music with the help of technology. He is instrumental in rolling out a music Musiguru and a 24 hour online carnatic music radio The Carnatica Channel. Shashikiran also organises a variety of music events through The Carnatica Archival Centre.
