Ranjani and Gayatri

imgRanjani and Gayatri have been performing as a vocal duo for more than a decade. As children, they were initiated into vocal music by their mother Smt. Meenakshi Balasubramanian, from whom they continue to learn and are blessed to have the guidance of their father Shri. N. Balasubramanian, who has not only been a strong support but, an integral part of their life and career. For the last several years they have been under the tutelage of Sangeetha Kala Acharya and veteran musician Shri. P. S. Narayanaswamy. Their deep roots in classical music, along with the intense training that they continue to do, have established them as artists of international repute. They have been born with strong, malleable voices which continue to win the hearts of listeners, traditional and lay. Each sister has a striking style of the own, yet blends so beautifully with the other. They have total control over pronunciation and voice modulation that makes their music "bhavam" laden. Ranjani and Gayatri who were sensitive to delicate nuances of Carnatic music even as toddlers, started off learning Carnatic violin from Sangeetha Bhushanam, Prof. T.S. Krishnaswami. They were found to be gifted with a natural aptitude for the instrument which gave them early success with a debut performance within three years of learning. They became established violin artists and started dedicated and arduous vocal training which gave them enduring success in both areas. Recognition was instant and prestigious awards were showered on them. The All India Radio has awarded them an A-Grade in both violin and vocal music.
