Jyotsna Srikanth (South Indian Carnatic Violinist): Jyotsna Srikanth is the most sought after South Indian violinist in Europe and composer known for her versatility and ability to collaborate with different genres seamlessly and with ease. She is intensely rooted in South Indian classical music alongside exploring lush ground in the crossover between Indian music and a variety of contemporary flavours. Jyotsna also had formal traning of Western classical violin too. Her violin playing has a nice blend of 'bhava' [musical expression and emotion] & fingering technique, a result of three ‘decades of experimentation’ as per a critic. Having played violin for more than 200 Indian films, she is now currently working on numerous large scale music experiments – in a way bringing communities together. She is the Artistic Director of the London International Arts Festival (www.liaf.co.uk)
Jyotsna is interested to collaborate with Philharmonic Orchestras, String Orchestras and string quartets for an Indian Violin concerto. She is interested in meeting musicians, managers, orchestra leads who are open to experiments. She is also wanting to meet Western classical musicians interested in collaborating with her.
‘Seasons 4/6’ is an interesting project of Jyotsna Srikanth. The four seasons of the west and the six seasons of India are experienced through harmonic arrangements, orchestration and rich embellishments featuring Ragas [modes] with generous sprinkling of Western harmony and arrangements. A unique ‘never-before’ exciting musical collaboration, bringing together the beauty of the pure Western and the Indian classical music, culminating with a major collaborative piece is a delight to the ears.
Recently she collaborated with the London Philharmonic Orchestra and performed for 60000 people in Wembley stadium for the community reception organised for the Indian Prime Minister in the presence of the British Prime Minister David Cameron.
