About the Author:
Kamini spent over decade learning and mastering intricacies of Indian Classical music in India, where she grew up. Her training started with her mother, Uma Natarajan and her grandmother Sundari Raghavan – both classically trained singers. Her grandmother would often teach her about spirituality and narrate mythological tales of Ramayana and Mahabharata. She also taught Kamini several ancient mantras and chants. Taking in all these millennia old traditional music, mantras and spirituality helped Kamini focus on both the art of music and heart of music. She graduated in Vocal music and started teaching music in 1997.
Kamini's Kirtans bring out her deep spiritual background. They are extremely mystical and magnificently divine. People are left mesmerized by her angelic voice, her intricate improvisations, her odd meter rhythms and most importantly her radiant warm smile.
