Carnatic Vocal Concert by Sandeep Narayan

Sandeep Narayan

Sandeep Narayan is regarded as one of the leading vocalists of Carnatic music today. He
had his initial training from his mother, Smt. Shubha Narayan, and at the age of 11, took a
break from his academic education to undergo advanced training from the revered
musicologist, Calcutta Shri K.S. Krishnamurthy in Chennai, India. After Shri Krishnamurthy
passed away in 1999, Sandeep began learning from Sangitha Kalanidhi Shri Sanjay
Subrahmanyan.
In 2006, Sandeep broke boundaries by being the first US born and raised musician to
move to India to take up music as a full-time career, a trend that is now followed by many
other aspiring musicians.
In 2019, the Government of India’s Sangeet Natak Akademi awarded Sandeep with the
the prestigious title, “Ustad Bismillah Khan Yuva Puraskar.” He is also the recipient of the
title “Isai Peroli” from Kartik Fine Arts, “Shanmukha Sangeetha Shiromani” from Sri
Shanmukhananda Sangeetha Sabha, Mumbai, “Kala Ratna” from the Cleveland
Thyagaraja Aradhana, the Yuva Purandara Award from Indranagar Sangeeth Sabha,
Bangalore, the Best Ragam-Tanam-Pallavi Award from The Music Academy Madras, and
the Best Concert & Vocalist Awards from The Music Academy Madras five years
consecutively. Sandeep has been an ‘A’ Grade artiste with All India Radio, Chennai since
2010.

Having performed extensively all over the world including concert tours of Australia,
Canada, England, Germany, Oman, Singapore, Sri Lanka, United Arab Emirates and the
United States of America, Sandeep hopes to continue serving as a cultural link between
Carnatic music and audiences worldwide.
