Profile - R. Vedavalli
A reason why many organisations arrange lecdems on music and dance subjects is presumably there is a keen interest among at least a segment of music and dance enthusiasts to learn more about these arts. There are many scholars as well as artists who cater to this; among them, Sangeeta Kalanidhi R. Vedavalli is recognised as an assertive voice that can present the in-depth nuances, grammar and valid interpretations of classical music. Vedavalli has remained committed to maintaining the traditional method of rendition in Carnatic music. She has proved that it is possible to hold the attention of audiences without compromising the integrity and quality of what is termed as art music. This is particularly significant at a time when seminars are popping up with such titles as Quality vs Audience, as though the two are mutually exclusive.
