About Kanada Narahari:
Dr Kanada Narahari’s father, Vidvan Narahari Keshava Bhat is a renowned Sanskrit scholar, poet and author of theater plays in Sanskrit and Yakshagaana, a form of traditional performing art- therefore, it is not surprising that young Kanada would have been exposed to Indian performing arts, music and literature.
At the age of 9, he was enrolled to study Carnatic classical vocal with Vidushi Shreedevi Aravind, it was then that he began to develop an interest in Hindustani Classical music and was particularly attracted to the Sitar. He initially spent a year under Subrahmanya Hegade but found solace at the feet of his mentor and teacher Pundit Sanjeev Korthi.
