Though her learning journey is vast and endless, she endeavours to present a tiny fragment of the wide ocean covering various classical aspects of the Carnatic music system. Ramya Harish will be accompanied by the budding talents, Sreeranjani Muthusubramaniam on the violin and Tharun Narayanan on mridangam.
