About

Sanjay Subrahmanyan was born in Chennai on January 21, 1968 into a family steeped in Carnatic music. The air in his childhood home was thick with the strains of some of the greatest voices ever known to the Carnatic music world – blaring out from the radio, tape recorders and the gramophone. Like many others in the family, Sanjay took to the art form like a duck to water. His early training included violin and vocal classes from Guru V. Lakshminarayana, his grand aunt Guru Rukmini Rajagopalan, Guru Calcutta K.S. Krishnamurthi and more recently, from Nadaswaram maestro Guru S.R.D. Vaidyanathan. Today, at the height of his powers, Sanjay is himself an iconic inspiration to the younger generation, and his legion of admirers is spread all over the globe. He studied with Semponarkoil S. R. D. Vaidyanathan from 2002 until 2013. In this period, Sanjay Subrahmanyan started to explore vivadi (dissonant) ragas. He sang again-tanam-pallavis in Hindusthani ragas. He explored several rare ragas that are rarely sung in concerts. Sanjay Subrahmanyan was the subject of the documentary film "Aaraar aasaippadaar" by filmmaker Prasanna Ramaswamy; the documentary film was screened in November 2006 in Chennai.
Speciality: Vocal
