About U.Srinivas:
Maestro U.Srinivas is the leading mandolin exponent in the world of Carnatic music today. Nobody in recent times has achieved charisma in as quick a time as Shrinivas has done. He is a musical phenomenon to whom perfection of tone and execution come as spontaneously as the free and unfettered flow of his ideas. U. Shrinivas has often been compared to the world’s greatest prodigies, and when critics first reviewed his performances, it was hard to tell if they were talking about a child or a god!

The dreams and aspirations of U.Shrinivas have paved the way for the setting up of a unique organization - "Shrinivas Institute of World Musique" (SIOWM).
