Malladi Brothers

Ravikumar and Sreeramprasad are very well known as the Malladi Brothers, two of today’s finest singers in the karnatic idiom. They are the principal shishyas of late great Neduneri Krishnamurthy with whom we have released the 3-cd album For Tradition Turn to Nedunuri

This was our first recorded concert during Margazhi 2019. We had only 20 minutes to arrange the recording so we missed the beginning but the rest is a beautiful concert of classical Karnatic by the old master composers with excellent accompanists Embar S, Jabbab and Alathur T. Rajaganesh on violin and kanjira. We are especially happy for the presence of legendary mridangam maestro Trichy Sankaran.
