Jayalakshmi Sekhar

Music of the vainika who follows the Pinakapani and Dhanammal traditions.

Jayalakshmi Sekhar started out learning the violin but then shifted to the veena, which is now her instrument of choice. She was a long-term student of Sripada Pinakapani, spending long hours listening to and learning from the master. Her veena style is also inspired by the Veena Dhanammal baani, focusing on precision and musicality. Jayalakshmi Sekhar has also been teaching music and holding workshops detailing the technique of the veena. This Artiste Highlight features Jayalakshmi Sekhar and plays one hour of her renditions of compositions of Tyagaraja and Muthuswami Dikshitar.
