Being born in Salem, they had a great interest in music right from their young age. They started learning music from Dr.R.Seethalakshmi, the disciple late Shri Rajam Iyer, from the age of 3. They passionately learned the basics, krithis, bhajans, thiruppughzal, thevaram and slokams. They gave their first concert at the age of 7 and 9 respectively. They were proficient in singing the Pancharatna krithis at a very young age. Gradually, they have started giving small concerts around Salem city.
Later, with a great passion for excelling in music as an artist, they approached Smt. Lalitha Sivakumar, the daughter-in-law of the great D.K. Pattamal. At their initial days of learning music in Chennai, they used to come from Salem every month to learn music. Soon after, they got moved to Chennai, to achieve something in Carnatic music. They strongly believe that the sincerity they had towards music has led them to achieve the KALAI ILAMANI AWARD from the honourable Chief Minister of TamilNadu Government for the year 2015-2016.
They had great support from all sides, be it their Guru, parents and teachers. Learning music from such stalwarts made them work more day by day. Listening to concerts of all other musicians and practitioners to absorb their style and oeuvre, has been their base for progress and learning in their music.
