Jyotsna Srikanth Project/Live is an Indian Contemporary Music Act. The Indian violin is in the forefront with the backing of drums/ethnic percussion and keyboards.
Jyotsna Srikanth is the most sought after Indian violinist and composer in Europe, known for her versatility and ability to collaborate with different genres seamlessly and with ease. She is intensely rooted in south Indian classical music alongside having formal western classical music education.
Jyotsna has flourished as a performer and composer, exploring lush ground in the crossover between Indian music and a variety of world music & contemporary flavours. Her violin playing has a nice blend of ‘bhava’ [musical expression and emotion] & fingering technique, a result of three “decades of experimentation”.
Ms. Srikanth has featured in many major global music events and venues like WOMAD, Red Violin Festival, BBC Proms, Royal Albert Hall, Queen Elizabeth Hall & The Music Academy, Chennai. She was conferred the Fellowship from the Trinity College of Music, London for South Indian Carnatic music.
Having played violin for nearly 200 Indian and international films, she is currently working on numerous large-scale music experiments, bringing communities together. Jyotsna is the Artistic Director of the London International Arts Festival and Dhruv Arts.
