Cross-over could have been invented for the world’s most sought-after virtuoso of the Indian violin: not only is Jyotsna Srikanth the queen of Carnatic music from southern India, she is a leading exponent of Indian jazz and experimental music, with a technique rooted in Western classical music. Her recitals combine a deep understanding of traditional music with a jazz and a contemporary touch. This rare balance between tradition and modernity has helped her carve a unique niche, captivating audiences across the globe.  She is a veteran of WOMAD, the BBC Proms, eight albums and nearly 200 Bollywood films.

In her latest jazz-fusion tour "Bangalore Dreams", she is accompanied by two south Indian rhythm instruments: the mridangam, a two-sided drum, and the ghatam, the clay pot.
