    1. You are simply marvelous, Sriranjini. There is blazing Jyothi in your muisc. As an old person, I take the freedom to pass a comment – I wish you would keep your eyes open more often. This comment is made because I want everyone to give you whatever wisdom they have so that you will become the jewel you are destined to be, sooner.

    2. I have been a great fan of yours. Try not to miss your concert if in Mumbai. Recently attended your katcheri in Shanmukhananda. Great show as usual. My blessings to you. Have always admired your father. I too am a Carnatic vocalist but also sing for devotional and film orchestras. Wish you all the best, once again. Even today. I recommended your concerts to my young sishyas(three girls)

  2. Dear Madam, we are in your concert in Bellary. (Myself, Wife and Son). We are enjoying your singing. I am interested in enhancing my son’s music talent. He is 8 years old and is going to carnatic music classes since last 3 years. I request your help for future guidance. Thanks

  5. Hi Sriranjini,
    Had the fortune to hear you at Gosri Gana Sabha, Mattanchery-Kochi accompanied by Ajith sir and another mridangam maestro from palakkad. Three of you took us to heaven. You were really awesome. Got a lot of inspiration & learning from you in those three hours.

  6. The other day I happened to hear nadasudharasa in dd which reminds us of the great mlv ammal rendering arabhi.thank u.may your purity in music last long since these days after a great beginning many tend to do unethical things which are quite unnecessary in classicism because our only aim is to identify our soul with the great masters.innovations are welcome but they shouldnot be by spoiling the great creators.thank u and your father for keeping tradition pure

  7. Had the opportunity to attend your concert at seshadripuram college this evening. Excellent.
    You really deserve many more awards.

    All the best.

  8. sriranjini thanks for giving us our carnatic music back i am tired of jugalbandis and fusions wherein great musicians join with pomp to spoil both the cultures equalli. I am of of the opinion that each flower has it;s own fragrance and we should enjoy each of them individually. thanks

  9. Hello,

    The Thyagaraja Aradhana concert on 30th May in Perth gave us a truly mesmerizing musical evening. Thank you very much for the exemplary performance you came out with. It demonstrated, the true potential and promise you have as a Great Vocalist. It is heartening to note that the spirit of classical music will remain strong, thanks to the young generation singers such as yourself. Best Wishes.

  10. I attended ur concert this evng at Jss Sangeeta sabha, Mysore.Just wanted to tell u that ‘Sri Chamundeshwari ‘has also a chitteswara which u missed in today’s concert. Otherwise an excellent concert. May u become a second Subbulakshmi amma.

  11. வணக்கம். நான் அமெரிக்காவில் இருப்பதால் நேரடியாக உங்கள் கச்சேரியை கேட்க முடியா விட்டாலும் கூட, சில நிகழ்ச்சிகளை இணையம் -தொலைக்காட்சி மூலம் கேட்டிருக்கிறேன்.
    அருமை. இனிமையான குரலும் கூடவே சிறந்த இசை இலக்கணமும் உங்கள் இசையை உச்சத்தில் கொண்டு சென்றுள்ளதை காண்கிறேன். எனது பாராட்டும் வாழ்த்துகளும்.
    தமிழிசையின் இசை அரசியாக மென்மேலும் வளர இறை ஆசி வேண்டுகிறேன்.


  13. Sriranjani,
    You are a perfect example of a genius in music. I have never heard so much passion with so much discipline. God bless you years of singing!

  14. Hi ,

    I am interested in checking for music classes for my kids. Please let me know if you are accepting new students.


  15. Had the opportunity to attend your concert at Sri Ranaganathaswamy temple @Pomona, NY this evening. My 8 year old daughter (learing carnatic) felt you were awesome.

  16. Just heard her perform in Pomona temple NY. God bless you and may you continue to enchant with your voice and devotion to music.

  17. I have just seen your concert “Bharat Sangit Utsav 2014” in YouTube. It is marvelours. May the Goddess Saraswati bless you with long life and great many more successes in your career. God bless you.

  18. I have been fortunate enough in listening to your performance since you were competing in carnatic music idol in Jaya TV. Right from that moment I always search for your latest performance in PC. Your sweet voice with a clear pronunciation of lyrics is something superb. Wishing you all the best .

  19. To those of us in despair when MSS stopped singing and then passes away, are now reassured that there is a worthy successor –in musicianship, tonality,voice, beauty and grace.

    1. Hai Sreeranjini
      Very glad to note your steady progress and the appreciations that come on the way.kindly let me know your kerala programmes .if possible i want to hear you post a mail.wishing you and pithaaji all success
      Affly venugopalan

  20. நேற்று வாகடீஸ்வரியில் அமைந்த பரமாத்முடுவைக் கேட்டேன். படு சுகம். வாழ்த்துக்கள். ஆடிகள்.

  21. Hello Sriranjani, your concerts are really fantastic. Further, your recording for Parishvanga Pattabhishekham is superb! Looking forward for more!!!

  22. Sriranjini:
    I have now listened to all your concerts that are available on the internet.Awesome.The kokila priya was particularly captivating..
    I have a suggestion to make: in some of your concerts you pause to announce the raga and the authorship of the lyric that you are about to sing. I think it will be very helpful to the half- educated members of the audience if you do this all the time.
    I am thinking of coming to Chennai just to listen to you in person this summer!!

    1. I heard that you were working to obtain an Masters in Philosophy (aesthetics).I wonder what your thesis going to be.It would be very enlightening if you write on the process of discipleship in your special case and describe the methods of learning, the discipline and how it affected you as a daughter etc: Daughter and Disciple!

      1. “Music hath charms to soothe a savage beast,

        To soften rocks or bend a knotted oak”
        These lines are from the 17th century English poet William Congreve

  23. SriRanjani ! शुभाशिषः to you, i have listened to many of your concerts, your involvement while rendering the kRitis of various VaaggeyakAras is simply supers, you take the listeners too to the “parabrahma” like Sri SadAshiva Brahmendra said “mAnasa sanchara re brahmaNi”. May the great VaaggeyakAras bless you always.

  24. Hi Sriranjani,
    I am one of your big fan. I am an amateur flute player. You would have heard a zillion times, everyone telling that your voice is awesome and all, I am adding to that and telling that “Your voice and your knowledge about Music is excellent 🙂 “. Your songs are the ones I listen to for classical songs. I have a question, how many hours do you practice singing?

      1. Yoga! That’s quite interesting. I am hearing this for the first time that yoga can practised for singing. May I know which yoga you practice?

      2. hai sriranjani ,,,,,,,,,looking forward to hear you live at cherpulassery palakkad on oct 4th,i got the info from an arts group,convey my most reverent and affectionate regards to appa and amma.with lots of affection venugopal

      3. Hi,
        Today I had come to your concert organised by Madrasana. I must say, the pleasant atmosphere, your singing along with birds chirping were truly blissful. I thoroughly enjoyed the concert. Sorry that I could not come in person to say this to you. All your songs and your voice are still lingering in my mind. Thank you for the wonderful concert 🙂

  25. I experienced the lotus eyed face, blue coloured body adorned with pearls garlands with shining bow and arrows…RAMA into my room when I listen to your “Nannu palimpa”
    I was enchanted with divine emotions by your amazing performance.
    Of course it is video……God bless you child.

  26. Hi Mam,

    I just watched your performance in carnatic music idol on youtube.
    Your performance was outstanding.
    Could you please sing “marugelara o raghava” song for me.
    I am telugu and don’t understand tamil much.
    Your voice is very melodious and refreshing 🙂 🙂
    I have become a big fan of you in a very short span of time.

  27. Hai Sriranjani
    Your second live concert I heard at Ernakulam was really very nice. Your raga rendering sahithya and swara are all balanced and none loses melody which is a rare gift. Please do keep this purity. The trend now is to do something new which ends up in really spoiling soulful singing. Pure music lives through ages….not a better example than Thyagarajaswamigal.Very unfortunate that people forget this. May your Sadhana continue by Gods grace. Pransms to Guruji… your dad….. too

  28. Hi Sriranjani,
    Are you giving any concerts this month in Chennai? I would like to attend your Chennai concerts 🙂

  29. Madam,

    Could you please sing “bhaavayami gOpalabaalam” song for me.
    I don’t time to attend your kacheri.
    Your voice is very pleasant to hear.
    Please upload this song on youtube/facebook.
    This is the only medium where people like me can listen to your songs.

    Thanks & regards,

  30. Sowbhagyavathi SriRanjani, Heard your 2013 YT video. Your gifted voice is beyond comprehension, so is your singing. I don’t know which deserves top praise: alapana, kalpanaswara, neraval – guess ALL! ‘Kokilapriya’ was 1st for me. Is it possible to sing “Andharangam ellaam” (vachaspathi) or “MamavaPattabhiRama” (MaNirangu)? Are you performing at 2017 Cleveland Aradhana? I hope you are. God Bless you. Sarvam SriKrishNaarpaNam.

  31. Madam
    Yesterday heard a few of your concert recordings. What impressed me most was the ease and poise with which you sang. This added to the melody quotient of your gifted sweet voice transported me to a magical musical experience. May Goddess Kamakshi bless you with this voice for ever to enthrall the rasikas. Aseervadams.

  32. Had opportunity to listen your concert of nadaneerajanam. Your rich voice, humble interaction with me when I meet after concert impressed me very much. It is always fresh in my memory

    Great fan

  33. Pranams,
    Many of your recent concerts were mind blowing! Especially in Narada Gana Sabha…. If I remember well you were accompanied by CV Ramana and Ananthakrishnan sir. The Pantuvarali (raghuvara) was so good and the RTP just left me enthralled. Naattai (Jaya Jaya) in your Nadaneerajanam concert showed your brilliance to the core!!!
    I grew up listening to your dad sing…. He’s my favourite musician!!!
    I’m waiting for more exciting concerts!

    ~A school-going fangirl passionate about vocal music and mridangam

  34. Hi

    I am a big fan of Neyveli sir, heard one of your renditions in YouTube- poonguyil koovum…. amazing, I just listened to it repeatedly for the expressions you bring to the song…. you are just so perfect and what a beautiful voice! since then been following you and your concerts…I find purity and divinity in your songs…way to go! I am a student of Chritaveena P.Ganesh, what would be your advice for women who learn music around how to find their true voice? How to bring out the sweetness in it? Are you doing any concerts in the U.K.?

    Thank you so much.
