Sanjay Subrahmanyan, born on 21st January 1968, a powerful and energetic singer, is an outstanding exponent of Carnatic Music, the classical music system of Southern India. His strong and vibrant voice, rich and fertile imagination and an excellent blend of tradition and modernity has helped him win a permanent place in the hearts of music lovers all over the world. His music has an endearing quality that connects him to any audience that he performs for.
Sanjay has undergone an intensive taining period of 27 years under several great musical teachers. He began by learning the violin under Shri V Lakshminarayana (better known as the father of the violin wizards L Vaidyanathan, L Subramaniam and L Shankar). He then switched to vocal music and learnt from his grand aunt Smt Rukmini Rajagopalan for a period of 10 years. A further 10 years were spent with Shri Calcutta KS Krishnamurthy one of the greatest teachers of Carnatic music in the late 20th century. Sanjay continues his quest for knowledge and gets guidance from Nadaswaram maestro Sembanarkoil SRD Vaidyanathan, even today at the height of his successful career. It is notable that Sanjay also qualified himself as a Cost and Chartered Accountant and gave it all up to pursue his passion for carnatic music.
