Malladi Brothers

Malladi Brothers Sreeram Prasad and Ravikumar were born with a legacy and rich tradition accrued through their grand father Late Malladi Srirama Murthy and through their father, a great Harikatha exponent of his time in Andhra Pradesh. Both the brothers received musical training from their father - vocalist, Malladi Suri Babu, himself a disciple of the great Late Voleti Venkateswarulu. Sangeetha Kalanidhi Nedunuri Krishnamurthy, realizing the potential of Malladi Brothers took them under his guidance to represent his rich style of music. Malladi brothers possess a large repertoire of Carnatic compositions and possess a vibrant and powerful voice. The brothers have been the most sought after young maestros. They have traveled extensively all over India and abroad promoting and preserving the rich traditional music they represent. Malladis have several audio publications to their credit.

B.U. Ganesh Prasad

Ganesh Prasad is an extremely talented youngster. He had his initial training from Basavanagudi Natraj of Banglore and advanced training under the able guidance of the violin maestro V.V. Subramanyam of Madras. Ganesh has gained fame in India and abroad for his excellent accompaniment to leading artistes of South India and in particular he has been on several tours abroad in the company of Shashank.

Equally proficient in mridangam and khanjira, Satish has accompanied many senior artists in India and abroad.
