An evening of music
Manjula Gururaj completes 25 years of singing
SILVER LINING Manjula Gururaj
Ranjini Kalakendra, a centre for performing arts, is organising a Musical Night – an evening dedicated to singer Manjula Gururaj. Manjula is also known as the melody queen of Karnataka. Her name is synonymous with the hit song “Olage Seridare Gundu” from the film “Nanjundi Kalyana”.
Manjula comes from a family of musicians and music came to her naturally. She has rendered her voice to more than 1,500 songs in many languages – Kannada, Telugu, Tamil, Malayalam, Tulu, Konkani and even Persian.
She is also an “A” grade artiste of the AIR and television and a senior grade vocalist in Carnatic classical music.
In 1983, Manjula was honoured with the Best Play back singer Award from the State Government for the classical song in the film, “Chinnari Mutha”.
She also won the Best Voice Award from the State for the film, “Beladingala Bale”. Besides, all this she has also performed live in India, U.S.A., UAE, Malaysia and Singapore. Her passion for music is so much that she started the Sadhana Music School.
The noted play back singer from the Kannada film industry will be felicitated for her 25 years of singing at Palace Grounds on October 30 at 6 p.m.
