Singer Nithyashree Biography

Dr. Nithyasree Mahadevan, also previously referred to as S. Nithyashri, is an eminent Carnatic musician and playback singer for film songs in many Indian languages. Nithyasrees paternal grandmother, D. K. Pattammal, and her granduncle, D. K. Jayaraman, were prominent Carnatic vocalists who were established disciples of Ambi Dikshithar, Papanasam Sivan, Muthiah Bhagavathar, and others. Nithyasrees maternal grandfather was the prominent mridangam maestro, Palghat Mani Iyer.

Nithyashree has performed in all major sabhas in India and has presented her concerts in many destinations around the world. She has received multiple awards and honours, and has released more than 100 commercial albums.Nithyasree was born to Lalitha Sivakumar and I. Sivakumar. Her paternal grandmother was the Carnatic vocalist D. K. Pattammal, while her maternal grandfather was the mridangam maestro, Palghat Mani Iyer. Her granduncle was the Carnatic vocalist, D. K. Jayaraman.

Her mother, Lalitha Sivakumar, was her first guru (teacher). Like her mother, Nithyashree was also the disciple of D. K. Pattammal, and would accompany her in concert. Nithyashrees father, an accomplished mridangist and disciple of Palghat Mani Iyer, would constantly show his support and accompany Nithyashree when she performed.

Nithyashrees introduction to Tamil playback singing came when A.R. Rahman called her to Panchathan Recording Inn, in Chennai, for a voice test sometime in the 1990s. The output from her visit was used for the song Kannodu Kanbarellam in the movie "Jeans" starring Aishwarya Rai. This became particularly popular, along with Minsara Kanna from "Padayappa", Sowkiyama Kannae from "Sangamam", and Manmatha Vasam from "Parthale Paravasam".

Some of her other songs include Kumbakonam Sandhayile from "New", Oru Nadhi Oru Pournami from "Samurai (film)", Kana Kaangiren from "Ananda Thandavam" as well as Thaai Thindra Mannae from the film "Aayirathil Oruvan".She also successfully branched out to Telugu and Kannada playback singing, with songs such as Ra Ra... from "Apthamitra".
