Artistes Matter:


Bombay Jayashri Ramnath

Singer. Composer. Collaborator. Teacher. Writer.  Like her music that is rooted but versatile, Chennai-based acclaimed musician, Bombay Jayashri Ramnath, wears many hats. Blessed with an enviable voice that has a rich texture and a hypnotic quality, Jayashri's musical influences have been cross-pollinated with her own training in Hindustani music, theatre and Bharatanatyam. She has performed at the most prestigious venues worldwide and has collaborated with artistes across genres and the globe. She has also composed music for a host of dance productions and films. Teaching is a significant part of her life today and under the umbrella of the Hitham Trust that she founded, she travels the interiors of India, sharing her music with children in remote areas, hoping to transmit the magic of music to them.

Abhishek Raghuram

Music is literally in Abhishek Raghuram’s blood - he is the grandson of the late mridangam legend, Palghat Raghu and his mother belongs to the illustrious Lalgudi bani. 

Abhishek started learning the mridangam from his grandfather and then moved on to vocal training under Vidwan PS Narayanaswamy. Along the course of his career - his first international concert was with his grandfather, Palghat Raghu in the US -  Abhishek has performed with several eminent musicians including TK Murthy, Umayalpuram Sivaraman, Karaikudi Mani, Ganesh & Kumaresh,  Shashank Subramanyam, Guitar Prasanna, Shujaat Khan, just to name a few. An “A” grade artiste of All India Radio since 2012, Abhishek was - in 2014 - presented by Ustad Zakir Hussain in the “Barsi” festival dedicated to his father Ustad Alla Rakha. Possessing a combination of virtuosity, aesthetics and intellect, Abhishek has created a new genre in the field of music that, according to critics is “food for the intellect, mind, heart and soul”. Abhishek enjoys working with students of the art, strongly believing in the need to teach. In 2016, Abhishek Raghuram collaborated with Bombay Jayashri Ramnath at Kalaa Utsavam - Indian Festival of Arts, a festival organised by Esplanade, Singapore.

Production Preview: Drawing inspiration from their own training, influences and experiences, classical music maestros, Bombay Jayashri Ramnath and Abhishek Raghuram’s collaborative performance is a sensitively curated homage to the musical traditions of India. Traversing seamlessly across these many musical forms, the performance is also inclusive in its premise and philosophy. Sharing space with the vocalists are artistes who literally own their instruments - tabla, mridangam, flute and sarangi - and together, they will add a fascinating dimension to the overall musical narrative allowing audiences to appreciate the beauty of individuality and the magic of a collaboration.
