Music- Her Journey
For Sajna the doors to classical music were opened through the realm of dance. Her Guru V.Mydhili was responsible for Sajna's exposure to classical music, be it vocal or instrumental. One of the most important lakshanas of a dancer should be her genuine knowledge and understanding of music. Hence through dance, she was able to understand, learn and imbibe from her music. She trained in Carnatic music under the tutelage of the renowned classical musician and Guru Prof.Dr.K.Omanakutty, retired Professor and Head of the Department of Music, Kerala University, founded by her. She is also the Director of her institution the Sangeetha Bharathi. Sajna continues to learn from her, absorbing the vast depth of knowledge of the art form. Furthermore she trains under the able guidance of Guru, Prof. K. Venkataramanan, Rtd. Prof. of Sri Swathi Thirunal Music College, Thiruvananthapuram.
She trained in Hindustani music under Guru Abradita Banerjee and in the Veena, under Guru Balambal also a Rtd Professor from Swathi Thirunal Music College, Thiruvananthapuram. Her journey of music has been thus honed by able gurus who have always strived to get the best out of her and they continue to support her with their blessings.
