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, Pandit Ravi Shankar described them as the ‘Princes of Mysore’.
"For the rest of the world, we may be maestros but for [our father], we are always learners and we prefer that he treats us so. It was his teaching that has brought us to where we are now."
