Sudha Manian and Yatra

Deeply rooted in Indian classical music traditions, Sudha Manian started her training in Indian classical music and dance: Sitar and Bhartnatyam at the age of nine with her Gurus in Hyderabad, India. Wholeheartedly committed to her art, Sudha gave numerous stage performances and participated in various music and dance competition throughout her school and college years, earning her degree in dance and sitar as a young woman before immigrating to Australia.

As a solo artist in Australia Sudha has performed traditional Indian classical music on a number of platforms and has collaborated with other diverse artists to compose, create and perform fusion / world music.

Considered one of the finest sitar players
in all of Queensland, in 2016 she was a featured musician on BEMAC’s Culture Train and has performed at numerous festivals throughout the country, including the Brisbane International Jazz Festival , Festuri Festival, Shepperton Music Festival among others.

Most recently, Sudha has formed a prodigious group called “Yatra”, a quartet whose roots are steeped in Indian classical music. Meaning a journey, “Yatra” is a neoclassical band comprising sitars, a didgeridoo, a bass, tabla, and vocals. Together “Yatra” creates a perfectly orchestrated sound evoking a cocktail of emotions and an orchard of stories.

Rajiv Pandit moved to Brisbane, Australia from Kenya in his teens. He studied Civil Engineering at The University of Queensland where he graduated with First Class Honors. Music has always been that thread through his life that has kept him grounded and at peace. Even as a kid in Kenya, he remembers fondly how his whole family would sit together often to listen to Indian Classical music on the radio. Little did he know just how strongly he was being influenced to delve in to the realm of Raagas.

Having initially taken classical vocal training, he resolved within himself to learn the all so complex instrument, Sitar, which he was drawn to as a kid. He has been studying sitar under the guidance of his teacher, Sudha Manian who is an accomplished sitarist. He aspires that one day he will be able to uplift peoples spirits and bring a true sense of happiness to people merely by strumming the strings of his sitar.

It was here that she began pursuing her interest in singing, particularly Indian Carnatic Music, at the age of nine while continuing dancing, making the arts an integral part of her life.
