When music seeps into the hearts
of rasikas without themselves perceiving
it, then it can be said to have
served its ethereal purpose. For
sangita’s tranquil delights
lie hidden in the depths of the
heart, waiting to be activated by
a sensitive artiste like Bombay
Jayashri Ramnath. Her sensitivity
is rooted in tenderness, stimulating
music and music, in turn, lending
itself to contemplation. …states
a renowned critic in The Hindu.
Born into a family of musicians
with rich lineage and steeped in
pedigree music, Bombay Jayashri
Ramnath represents the fourth generation
of music practitioners in her family.
Jayashri has been groomed under
the guidance of the legend Shri
Lalgudi G Jayaraman and Smt T R
Balamani. Jayashri, today not only
bears the torch of the Lalgudi tradition,
but has also evolved a distinct
style of her own.
With a career extending over two
decades, Jayashri is today among
the most sought after Carnatic musicians.
The myriad aficionados, spanning
generations, that throng her concerts
would bear ample testimony to this.
Her work has won her the acclaim
of prestigious institutions in the
form of prestigious awards such
as the Sangeetha Choodamani and
repertoire of meditative music and
rare poetry are best experienced
through her compositions in her
albums. She has also composed music
for dance ballets and documentaries.
