This artiste highlight programme features leading vocalist Gayathri Girish. Having trained with Vaigal Gnanaskandan and Madurai T N Seshagopalan for vocal music and also on the violin from Lalgudi G Jayaraman and T Rukmini, her singing combines a weighty style with an easy way of presentation. A very flexible voice and an impressive repertoire make her concerts very enjoyable. She has been engaged in giving lecdems and has ventured into interesting areas within performance itself, such as "One Raga One Kriti" concerts that call for a high level of creativity or manodharma. She is the recipient of many awards, including Kalaimamani (2009) from the Govt of Tamilnadu and the K R Sundaram Iyer Memorial Award for Best Concert from the Music Academy, Chennai.
