Born into a family of musicians of extraordinary pedigree, Anuradha’s music knowledge and performing skills were adoringly and meticulously nurtured by a phenomenal musician, performer and teacher - her mother Guru Lalgudi Srimathi Brahmanandam. Contributing to this god given blessing was her sharp intellect and unwavering perseverance, a combination of which has made Anuradha who she is today - a beacon of guidance for the crown jewels that her guru has bestowed upon her.
Anuradha burst into the world of music with an outstanding debut at age 12, where she accompanied her mother in a full length violin duet lasting 3 hours. This beautiful journey continued for years and years where Anu would accompany her illustrious mother on her concert tours - matching bow for bow from start till the very end of each show. The Mother-Daughter duo awed audiences worldwide - Asia, Europe, The Americas, Far East and Down Under. Anuradha has also ably fulfilled invitations from some of the most talented musicians and performers to embellish their concerts as an accompanist. Even as a child artist, Anuradha was recognized by the Music Academy for her accompaniments many years in the December music festivals.
