Know About M.S. Subbulakshmi:-

M.S. Subbulakshmi, born on September 16, 1916, in Madurai, Tamil Nadu, left an indelible mark on the world of music and became a legendary figure in the realm of Carnatic classical singing. Fondly known as the “Queen of Carnatic Music,” her contributions to the world of art and culture are celebrated to this day.

Subbulakshmi, lovingly called Kunjamma by her family, was born into a family deeply rooted in music. Her mother, Shanmukhavadiver Ammal, was a veena player, and her grandmother, Akkammal, was a violinist. This musical environment provided the perfect backdrop for her budding talent.

Her musical journey began at an early age as she started learning Carnatic music under the tutelage of the renowned Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer. Subsequently, she also trained in Hindustani music under Pandit Narayanrao Vyas. These early influences set the stage for her remarkable musical career.

At just eleven years old, Subbulakshmi made her first public appearance in 1927, performing in the prestigious 100-pillar hall inside the Rockfort Temple in Tiruchirappalli. Accompanied by Mysore Chowdiah on the violin and Dakshinamurthy Pillai on the mridangam, this event was a significant milestone in her musical journey. It was organized by F. G. Natesa Iyer, a prominent Indian National Congress leader from Tiruchirappalli.
