The veena, has always had a special place in our house – as Jayanthi points out in this interview on Australian television. As a singer, I’ve admired the veena (of course, my mother had learned to play it, as had my mother-in-law) and felt it comes as close to the human voice as few other instruments do. It was only late in my musical journey, that I began truly appreciating the unique charm of the Veena. Of course living in Bangalore and knowing Jayanthi only made this interview all the more special. Catch the full interview in the video below.
