Mysore/Mysuru: A Sugama Sangeetha workshop was organised under the auspices of Mysore Ananthaswamy Memorial Trust on Feb. 2 at Bidaram Krishnappa’s Rama Mandira in city.
Sunitha Ananthaswamy, well-known singer and daughter of Mysore Ananthaswamy, conducted the day-long music workshop which was attended by 30 participants.
The workshop was inaugurated by Shantha Ananthaswamy, wife of late Mysore Ananthaswamy by lighting the lamp. Trust President M. Lakshminaryan and other Trustees, Babu Lakshminaryan, Keerthi Kumar, Venkatesh Bhat and Dr. Maya Sitaram were present. Noted singers and Raju Ananthaswamy’s students, Nitin Rajaram Shastry and Ashwin Prabhu and Tabla artiste Indu Shekar were also present.
Sunitha Ananthaswamy’s singing, composing and teaching abilities came to the fore at the workshop.
The students who participated at the workshop were appreciative of Sunitha’s selection of songs, her ability to teach and her dedication to music. It was heartening to see a visually impaired girl writing down the lyrics in Braille, matching speed and agility in writing and in singing with the others.
Sunitha has been teaching music at USA and was in India on a visit.
