Sikkil Sisters

A highlight on this famous flute duo in connection with Kunjumani's birth anniversary on June 15.

The Sikkil sisters, Kunjumani and Neela, have been in the forefront of the Carnatic flute arena for many decades now. They took to performing concerts on the flute when neither women flautists nor women performers themselves were common. With training from their paternal uncle Azhiyur Narayanaswamy Iyer and active encouragement from their father Azhiyur Natesa Iyer, they established themselves as a prominent flute duo. They were conferred the prestigious title of Sangeetha Kalanidhi from the Madras Music Academy in the year 2002.
