Carnatic vocalists Shree Sisters — Tejashree Mahadevan and Tanujashree Mahadevan — are the great granddaughters of Ganasaraswathi D.K. Pattammal and mridangam maestro Palghat Mani Iyer.

They have been undergoing training under the able guidance of their grandmother Lalitha Sivakumar and mother and renowned Carnatic vocalist Nithyasree Mahadevan for the past eight years. This year, for the first time, they are performing during the December Music festival at the Global Art and Music Fest conducted by Carnatica and Sri Parthasarathi Swami Sabha.

The sisters have won prizes in music competitions and they have also performed a few concerts during the past few years. Singing in perfect harmony, they have performed at the Mummoorthigal Isai Vizha at Tiruvarur. They also frequently accompany their mother Ms. Mahadevan on stage.

Tejashree and Tanujashree have had the honour of performing at the inauguration of an Indian school in Tokyo last year. They are studying in class X and IX respectively in Vidya Mandir, Mylapore. Apart from academics and music, they are interested in drawing, reading and writing.
