She started learning music at the age of 9, from Sri K.P. Vasu of Calicut and later became the disciple of famous vocalist, Smt Charumathi Ramachandran, Chennai. She has been regularly performing in various Sabhas all over India, and in the prestigious Margazhi music festival conducted in Chennai every year.

Her work has been diverse, ranging from education programmes at various public schools in South India to music workshops in France and more recently, being actively involved in ‘The Urur Olcott Kuppam Vizha’ which is a festival about bringing down barriers, equalising spaces and de-classing the arts. The Vizha exposes artists to new audiences, audiences to different art forms, and sows the seeds for artists to emerge from under-represented sections of society.
