Aruna Sairam

img

She was born and raised in Mumbai. Her mother, Smt. Rajalakshmi Sethuraman was her first Guru. While her mother was a performer, teacher, and All India Radio broadcaster, her father was a knowledgeable connoisseur of the arts, who opened up his home to artistes, both musicians and dancers from all over India, thus creating a beneficial atmosphere around young Aruna. This was fundamental to the development of her art. She had the privilege of learning under many greats in the Carnatic music field, prime among them being Sangeetha Kalanidhis Smt. T. Brinda and Shri K.S. Narayanaswamy, Sangeetha Kala Acharya Bombay S. Ramachandran, Shri. T.R. Subramaniam, and Shri. A.S.Mani. The long list of illustrious Gurus gave her the rich repertoire that she is known for. She is an expert in the folk musical form and credit must be given to her for popularizing Marathi Abhangs in the Carnatic music platform. She can deliver Devarnamas and Padams with true authenticity. She holds a Masters in Music, and Bachelors in Chemistry and Education. Aruna Sairam is an artiste who commands a powerful stage presence and has the capacity to communicate admirably with the audience. Her voice is a special blend of resonance and range with a beautiful and unusual timbre. She has effectively utilized her knowledge of fluent English, French and other European languages to become a cultural ambassador to foreign nations where her lecture demonstrations are well accepted. Collaborative work with French and German artistes is also one of her achievements. Many awards and titles have been bestowed upon her, the Sangeetha Choodamani in 2006 being just one of them.
