Biography: Dr. Jayanthi Kumaresh, a sixth-generation Veena virtuoso, started playing the National Instrument of India, the Saraswathi Veena at the age 3 and is a ten-time recipient of the “Award for Veena” bestowed by The Music Academy, Chennai, India. In the 37 years of her concert career, Jayanthi has placed the Saraswathi Veena on the world map through her trailblazing performances.

Apart from her collaborations with several star musicians of Indian Classical Music, her concerts with Ustad Zakir Hussain, Indian National Orchestra, the British Philharmonic makes her an ambassador of the rich musical heritage of India.

She has taken the internet by storm through her innovative web series, Cup O’ Carnatic, which demystifies Indian Classical music to the world audience and has more than 2.5 million views on social media. With a doctorate in the art of Veena playing, her online Jayanthi Kumaresh Academy for Veena has students from over 15 countries with over 1500 individual registrations in the age group spanning 10-75 years.

She has been honored with innumerable awards including “Kalaimamani” by the Government of Tamil Nadu, “Sangeet Shikar Samman” by Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan to name a few.

Her fresh expressions of the ancient ragas and talas through the Voice of the Veena, makes Jayanthi one of the legendary Veena masters that India has ever produced.
