The disciples and rasikas of late Sangita Kalanidhi T. Brinda will be getting together to pay a musical tribute to her on the occasion of her 93rd birthday. Smt. T. Brinda hailed from the musical lineage of the legendary Vina Dhanammal, and was one of the finest Carnatic musicians of her times. She straddled the masculine style of her guru Kanchipuram Nayana Pillai and the feminine grace of her grandmother Vina Dhanammal’s style with ease, and created a beautiful blend of the two styles, which we call the Brinda bani today.

Under the initiative of her disciples Indira Menon and Kiranavali Vidyasankar, a musical homage will be paid to Brindamma. Musicians who are participating in this programme include Brinda’s disciples Chitravina N. Ravikiran, Smt. A. R. Sundaram, Smt. Rama Ravi, K. N. Shashikiran, Kiranavali Vidyasankar, Chitravina Ganesh, Anooradha Sriram, Geetha Raja, Nagalakshmi Lakshmanan and S. Girish. There will also be presentations on her style with the aid of audio/video clips by Chitravina N. Ravikiran and K. S. S. Rajan.

The event is open to the public, and will take place at Raga Sudha Hall, Luz, between 5 pm and 9 pm on Nov. 6, 2005.
