A child prodigy with music coursing through her veins, Meera Sivaramakrishnan has had a very glorious career spanning more than three decades that has revealed her mastery over the bow.
Unlike many ‘Star’ children who are not able to live up to the standards set up by their illustrious parents, Meera, receiving rigorous training under her mother Kalaimamani Radha Narayanan (herself a student of the legendary Padma Shri, Sangeetha Kalanidhi Shri Dwaram Venkatasami Naidu) showed herself to be the proverbial lion cub, forging ahead in leaps and bounds.
Her concert career began at the tender age of nine. Since then, there was no looking back. With complete control over the bow, mind boggling imagination and mastery over the rhythmic aspects. Meera was able to adapt herself to any style of playing.
The young Meera was soon much sought after as an accomplished accompanist. Concerts came thick and fast.
