Jayanthi Kumaresh

An hour of music by the versatile vainika.

Jayanthi Kumaresh has been enthralling audiences the world over with her graceful, emotive and expressive music for the last 25 years. Born into a family where music has been the mainstay for the last seven generations, Jayanthi started playing the veena when she was barely three. Jayanthi is the disciple of her maternal aunt, Padmavathy Ananthagopalan and veena maestro S Balachander. Her maternal uncle, the violin legend, Lalgudi G Jayaraman is a great influence and inspiration for her. Jayanthi has evolved her own identity and style by making the Veena her voice in expressing many a new musical thought to the audiences across the globe. She has today made the veena the focal point of musical essence and experience.
