Learn more about the music:
Mysore Manjunath and Mysore Nagaraj are among Carnatic music’s leading violinists. Trined principally by their father S. Mahadevappa, they developed a style which they describe as a “blend of emotive appeal, technical mastery and intellectual sophistication with a strict adherence to the classicism”. They perform in jugalbandi duet settings as well as collaborating with a diverse array of musicians both individually and together. On hearing them play, Ravi Shankar described them as the ‘Princes of Mysore’. Listen to more of the Mysore brothers here:
