We will be introduced to the bamboo flute and playing techniques by Jayanth.
JAYANTH is one of the most promising flutists in the Carnatic music arena. A Prodigy driven by divine in-born talent and bubbling enthusiasm in bamboo flute, he was naturally drawn into the tutelage and blessings of his grandfather, noted flutist Sri. T. S. Sankaran(disciple of Mali) in a traditional guru-sishya parampara since the age of five.He started his journey with learning vocal music from his grandmother late Smt.V.S.SUNDARI at the age of four. Jayanth gave his first solo flute concert at an age of seven. His ability to play RTP in three speeds surprised the senior accompanists and the audience on this occasion. He has been awarded ‘A’ grade by AIR, Chennai,2013. He has to his credit over 900 solo flute concerts in India and Abroad. He has a refined fingering and blowing technique allowing him to switch over to the BASS and DOUBLE BASS flutes with ease to cover lower octaves, which is a hallmark in his recitals. Jayanth naturally demonstrates depth and closeness to the lyrical aspect of a composition, given that he belongs to the pioneering school of Legendary Flute MALI.His spontaneity, perfect pitching coupled with expressive and bhava laden rendering has won him appreciation from his co-artists and music connoisseurs.
