Nithyasree Mahadevan

Music of the popular Carnatic vocalist and playback singer in connection with her birthday on August 25.

Nithyashree Mahadevan is among the top vocalists in the field and has been performing for around two decades now. Her family has a rich musical lineage. Her paternal grandmother and granduncle were the famous vocalists D K Pattamal and D K Jayaraman. Her maternal grandfather was the renowned mridangist Palghat Mani Iyer. Nithyasree’s singing combines many salient aspects of the D K Pattamal school like good diction and precision in rhythmic intricacies with a commanding and expressive voice. She has released many albums and they include many in the devotional genre. She has done playback singing for many Tamil films. Her first song, ‘Kannodu Kanbathellam’, for the movie Jeans, was a great hit.
