Since early childhood, the sisters Sreeusha and Sireesha from Chennai, India, have dedicated their playing to the electric mandolin, popularized by Uppalapu Srinivas in the 1980s. Encouraged by their musician father, the young sisters spent years training their technique and pitch perception abilities, devoting themselves to the mesmerizing sound of the five-string mandolin. The Mandolin Sisters belong to the Carnatic musical tradition which is one of the two main subgenres of Indian classical music associated with the southern parts of India, although it is also practiced throughout Sri Lanka. Not new to the game, the remarkable mandolin sisters have given roughly 2000 concerts in India and abroad throughout the years. They are now ready to take on Europe with their electrifying performance.
