Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi
 
“Sangeetha Choodamani”, “Tantri Nada Mani”, Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi, daughter and disciple of the great maestro Lalgudi Jayaraman, has been a worthy torch bearer of this great parampara. She has over the years contributed not only to the continuation of these unique bani, but has made it flourish further. The fifth generation musician in the family, Vijayalakshmi grew up in an atmosphere of reverberating, rich music. Early signs of her musical inclinations were apparent, when she was only two years old when even then, she could identify the solfa syllables in any musical phrase. These early trends were nurtured further when she commenced her lessons at the age of six under the watchful eyes of her perfectionist father. At the age of thirteen she went on stage for the first time with her father. Since then, she has been performing regularly in violin duets and trios with her father Shri Lalgudi Jayaraman and brother Krishnan. Over the years she has grown into a mature artiste and a violinist in her own right. She, along with her brother, Lalgudi Krishnan, is a leading exponent of the Lalgudi style, which is characterized by boundless innovation while strictly adhering to tradition and eloquently capturing the mood and essence of any composition.
