Nithyasree Mahadevan profile


Nithyasree Mahadevan, born in August 25, 1973 is an eminent Indian classical musician and playback singer for film songs in a number of Indian languages. She was born to Lalitha Sivakumar and Injikudi Sivakumar. Her mother Lalitha Sivakumar, who was Palghat Mani Iyer's daughter had learnt Carnatic music in Indian Classical Music from her mother-in-law, D. K. Pattammal, who was Nithyashree's first guru.

Her family history is made up of 2 doyens of Classical music; she is the maternal Granddaughter of Mridangam Maestro, Palghat Mani Iyer and even more famously, the paternal Granddaughter of the legendary Carnatic vocal exponent, stalwart of music, Damal Krishnaswamy Pattammal (DK Pattamal), the lady who sang a patriotic song at midnight on India's Independence Day in 1947. Nithya has followed this family tradition and keeps her family's heritage intact to the core. Having been endowed with all many awards and accolades, like being an A Grade artiste of All India Radio, awards like Kalaimamani and Isai Peroli
given only to the best of the best. She is one of the most humble people one could meet, possessing the gift of diplomacy, the grace of carrying herself with utmost decorum and being one of the most gifted 'stars' one would have the pleasure of meeting.
Nithyashree's father would constantly show his support, as he being an accomplished mridangist, would be Nithyashree's accompanist whenever he can. Nithyashree's commanding, high-pitched voice is well suited to carnatic music, devotional, patriotic and popular songs. Her amazing voice, coupled with her style and vast repertoire, impresses audiences all over the world.
Born to multiple music lineages, Nithyasree Mahadevan has an inimitable simple beauty and demeanour that not many can truly propagate. She shows this in all her actions and performances, that she is the epitome of the younger generation promoting South Indian culture and patriotism. Her Engineer husband, Mahadevan gives her full support helping her keep the commitment to her art. Nithyashree and her husband, Mahadevan, have 2 daughters, Tejashree and Tanujasree.
Steeped in tradition, Nithya, as she is fondly called by friends, well-wishers and family alike, is rarely seen without the traditional South Indian attire, the saree, usually dressed in brightly coloured Kancheepuram silk. Performing from a very young age, she has honed her Carnatic music skills to give performances that are second to none, with her incredible vocal range, reaching many octaves, her voice buoyant and her inherent ability to coerce notes into melting within each other, to capture the essence of the scale.
