E Gayathri

Music of the accomplished vainika and multifaceted musician in connection with her birthday on Nov 9.

E Gayathri was recognized as a prodigy, and she had her first concert at the age of nine, at which senior musicians and musicologists acknowledged her immense talent. Very soon after that, Gayathri started performing at various important venues, and became one of the most popular and followed artistes. The sound of her veena is distinctive, with its clear ringing tone and forceful playing. Over four decades and more of concert performances, Gayathri has proved to be a versatile musician whose grasp of the technical aspects of Carnatic music becomes evident through her effortless and melodious playing. Gayathri is also equally at home with other genres of music, and this familiarity and understanding gives her musical expression a certain universality while retaining its innate classicism. This programme plays an hour of Carnatic music by E Gayathri on the veena in connection with her birthday on November 9.
