Sikkil. C. Gurucharan is among the foremost young performing vocal musicians of Carnatic music in India today, who has performed extensively in India and abroad. Hailing from a family of internationally acclaimed flautists—the Sikkil Sisters—Gurucharan is an ‘A’ grade All India Radio artist that has been featured by a top Indian magazine as 35 Game Changers Under 35 in India.
Aside from performing traditional Carnatic music in the Paddathi style, Gurucharan and pianist Anil Srinivasan have brought together classical piano and Carnatic vocal music to create a format that has been termed as “devastatingly beautiful” by the legendary guitarist John McLaughlin. Their music, which has gathered followers in India, Singapore, Australia, the U.S. and Europe in a short span of time, presents and preserves classical music in a way that can reach younger listeners of music, while also satisfying purists.
