*About the Artist*
Sudha Ragunathan has a voice of gold that enthralls her listeners from all over the globe. In 1977, Sudha won a Central Government scholarship that gave her the opportunity to come under the wings of Padmavibushan Sangeetha Kalanidhi Dr. M.L. Vasanthakumari. Sudha had the golden opportunity to provide vocal support to MLV for about a decade. During her concerts, MLV would spontaneously stop and allow Sudha to take over.
From 1990, Sudha’s rise was phenomenal, and following her Guru’s demise, she has been considered as MLV’s vaarisu (heir). Her authentic renditions of 'krithis' and refined elaborations of 'ragas', the élan with which she breezes through the 'kalpana swaras', her command over the octaves and her supremely confident stage presence combined with unstated humility has given her an enviable pre-eminence in the world of Carnatic music.
Sudha is a top ranking artiste of the All India Radio and the Doordharshan, besides being the artiste in demand by leading recording companies like AVM, INRECO, VANI and AMUTHAM. In 2013 she received the Sangita Kalanidhi award from Music Academy, Chennai. This honor is considered one of the highest awards in Carnatic music.
With her crystal clear and almost divine voice, Sudha has reached out to the discerning music lovers across the world, widening musical communications across the cultural borders.
