The sisters specialise in the rendition of the “Avadhana Pallavi”, which they learnt from their maternal uncle R.S. Nandakumar.
Being LLB degree holders, both the sisters hold a ‘Vidwath’ degree in Carnatic Classical Vocal and Violin, conducted by the Government of Karnataka and are “B High” graded artistes in AIR. Their maternal grandfather is Mahamahopadhyaya Ra. Satyanarayana.
