Biography

When music seeps into the hearts of rasikas without themselves perceiving it, then it can be said to have served its ethereal purpose. For sangita’s tranquil delights lie hidden in the depths of the heart, waiting to be activated by a sensitive artiste like Bombay Jayashri Ramnath. Her sensitivity is rooted in tenderness, stimulating music and music, in turn, lending itself to contemplation. …states a renowned critic in The Hindu.

Born into a family of musicians with rich lineage and steeped in pedigree music, Bombay Jayashri Ramnath represents the fourth generation of music practitioners in her family. Jayashri has been groomed under the guidance of the legend Shri Lalgudi G Jayaraman and Smt T R Balamani. Jayashri, today not only bears the torch of the Lalgudi tradition, but has also evolved a distinct style of her own.

With a career extending over two decades, Jayashri is today among the most sought after Carnatic musicians. The myriad aficionados, spanning generations, that throng her concerts would bear ample testimony to this.

Her work has won her the acclaim of prestigious institutions in the form of prestigious awards such as the Sangeetha Choodamani and Nadabhooshanam.

Jayashri’s repertoire of meditative music and rare poetry are best experienced through her compositions in her albums. She has also composed music for dance ballets and documentaries. In this manner, Jayashri has deployed the essence of the classical idiom most effectively in her search for avenues beyond the concert format.
