U Srinivas - Highlight

As a tribute to unparalleled musician who played and lived his life on a much larger stage

This programme was put together on his last birthday
U Srinivas has given the mandolin a unique status in classical music.
As a very young boy Srinivas was a normal child in school except that he seemed to have an ear for music. Then one day, when he was only six years old, his parents came home to find him playing on his father's mandolin, and thus began his training in Carnatic Music. His talent was recognised in 1983, and he then spent several years touring the world extensively. He has performed with renowned artistes like Ustad Zakir Hussain, Ustad Sultan Khan, Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma, Hariharan, Shankar Mahadevan, and international stars like John Mc Laughlin, Michael Brook, Nana Vasconcelos and Nigel Kennedy, to name a few. With his rich classical background, U Srinivas also aims at propagating music globally through mandolin concerts.
