Mani Krishnaswami Academy (R.) was founded in 2004 in memory of Padmashree, Sangeetha Kalanidhi , Dr Smt. Mani Krishnaswami, an eminent Carnatic vocalist and a renowned music guru. At Mani Krishnaswami Academy (R.) it has been our sincere endeavour to promote Indian Classical art forms, particularly music in the last 12 years. We have organized music workshops, concerts, and presented awards to promising young artistes and felicitated senior artistes who have left their stamp in the field of Indian classical art. This has contributed to the preservation of our precious art tradition, particularly in the districts of Dakshina Kannada and Udupi.
