Posted 2016-05-16

Akkarai Sisters, Akkarai Subhalakshmi and Akkarai Sornalatha, violin, voice:

We are SO proud and happy that the sisters will join Beches Indian Brew for our tour in Sweden and Scandinavia during the second half of October. Our first concert will be at Kulturhuset in Stockholm at 4 pm on October 16th on the last day of the Stockholm Jazz Festival. On the same evening the Akkarai Sisters will give a Karnatic recital at the Stockholm Sangeet Conference. The next day, on October 17 we play at the Gothenburg Concert Hall. More dates later.

”The two sisters have created quite a storm in the South Indian classical music community, they perform duets of the highest quaility, they do it as a violin duo AND they do it equally great as a vocal duo which is something unheard of before. When we played in Chennai the younger sister Sornalatha played with us but after hearing the sisters in concert we liked it so much that we invited the elder sister Subhalakshmi to join us as well and we are so happy that she liked our music and is coming along on this tour as well.” –

Here is a video from a unique concert where they play their violins for the first hour and then sing during the second:
