Carnatic Masters: Violin & Veena Duets

The husband-wife duo of violin maestro R. Kumaresh and veena (lute) virtuoso Jayanthi Kumaresh, two of the foremost instrumentalists in their respective fields, performs a soulful evening of solos and duets accompanied by R. Sankaranarayanan (mrdangam - double-headed barrel drum) and S. Krishnaswamy (ghatam - clay pot). Kumaresh, who has 40 years of concert experience, has been internationally acclaimed both as a soloist and for his duets with his brother, Ganesh Rajagopalan. Jayanthi Kumaresh, a sixth generation musician who presents veena music in multiple genres with unparalleled perfection, has captivated audiences around the world for 30 years and collaborated with many of India's major artists.
