Chandana Bala Kalyan
Trained and steeped in the Carnatic classical tradition, Chandana brings a unique sensibility to the music she creates and performs. The music gene in her was recognised and nurtured by her father Dr. S Nataraja Murthy, who himself is an accomplished violinist. Many have called her a vocal gymnast, owing to her incredible ability to traverse scales and move between genres as diverse as Carnatic, Hindustani, Sufi and Jazz. She has taken the Carnatic idiom and given it newer expressions in her experiments with different musical styles.
