Vedavathi Prabhakar Vedavathi Prabhakar is synonymous with light classical music – be it concerts, radio programmes, films or temple devotionals. She has carved a niche for herself in the realm of devotional music for decades. Age has not marred her tonal quality nor her love of music. She readily renders a lovely devotional with the same rich melody that has become her hallmark. The innumerable songs she sang in Telugu and other south Indian languages, are testimony to her adaptability and artistic fervour. Yet, when she started singing, she literally had to learn the Telugu language. She was born and brought up in Bangalore. She was under the tutelage of G. Chennamma for ten years learning pure Carnatic classical vocal music. Her guru was then professor in a private music college. Her father would see to it that his sisters and her attended every music concert in order to develop a taste and love for music. She began feeling that if she had to sing, it should be on a par with the best of the vidwans. But coming from an orthodox family, she was never allowed to sing in public. she sought guidance under stalwarts like Annamalai Chettiar and Vaidyalinga Bhagavatar. When President V.V. Giri with the first lady visited Vijayawada, Vedavathi had to substitute the singer who was supposed to present a song in front of the President. She obliged readily as there was no alternative. And that brought about a change in her music life. The director and programme executive of AIR Vijayawada were impressed with her rendition and invited her to sing for AIR. Since her Telugu was quite poor, she took language lessons from Srirangam Gopalaratnam's brother and sang 15 songs, Pancharatna kritis inclusive. She mastered the language and intonation in no time and secured a ‘B' high grading in AIR. Soon she began singing Annamacharya keertanas composed by Nedunuri and other popular compositions set to music by Dr. Mangalampalli. They had musical features those days (something like a ballet). Emani Sankara Sastry's last recording was with her. She began singing with all popular musicians. And as luck would have it her family was fully supportive of her new career. Soon the beauty of her voice reached film music directors who started booking her for traditional film songs both in Telugu and Kannada industry. She touched the national scenario with G.V. Iyer's Adi Sankara. There was no looking back. Right from singing for Ramakrishna Mutt private devotional albums to Purandhara Dasa cassettes to annual Navaratri Brahmotsavams at TTD, she was everywhere including London, USA and Canada. Now a ‘A' top grade artist, she's often called to be part of the panel of judges assessing artists for grading at the AIR at New Delhi. In Mantralaya she began the ‘Nada namana' on the lines of TTD on Thursdays and Fridays. Musicians from all the southern states are given a chance to participate equally. She loves to do our bit for the promotion of music which is life force.
