I have opened a new page for Violin Vidushi A Kanyakumari.

To start off there is an interview which the artist had given to chennaibest.com & also 2 more articles from "The Hindu".

The interview is very nice, she gives very candid replies. Also I never knew that she was also tutored by Shri M.Chandrasekaran. Also in the "TSK-far ahead of times-DVD" , the way she spoke briefly about SKR was very touching. Connecting all great musicians of 70's like SKR,MLV, KSG, Flute Ramani etal,she is indeed a great accompanist for sure.

Her sishyas are embAr kannan, V.Sanjeev and relatively junior L.RAmakrishnan all three are living upto Ms Ak's standards.

The writeup could have been bit better. I wish she also continued as an accompanist after her guru's death.

M. Rajeev is one more sishya who is making his mark. In fact he has also been part of violin duet concert performing with his guru Kum. A. Kanyakumari.

Add kamalakiran vinjamuri to AK's sishya list. Each of her sishya's are really coming up well.

AK has an army of disciples!

L Ramakrishnan is very good. I believe he has also learnt from Shri TK Govinda Rao. Vittal Rangan (viewtopic.php?f=13&t=16238) and M Rajeev are very good too. Embar Kannan, Bombay Anand and V Sanjeev are other famous disciples who are also very talented.

Two more to add to the list. Nishant Chandran (http://www.cs.ucla.edu/~nishanth/Nishanth-music.htm) and Guitar Prasanna, who does not exclusively play carnatic music (http://www.guitarprasanna.com).

She also teaches / guides other instrumental artists and Sathya is a proud sishya & so would be Mandolin sisters Sriusha and Srisha and many more.
