Siddharth Belmannu Defies Age With His Talent

Siddhartha Belmannu is a young talented musician hailing from Karkala in Udupi district of Karnataka. Born on 2nd October 1996 into the music loving family of mother Usha and father Prasad Belmannu who recognised early on that he was endowed with a gifted voice, fluent in 3 octaves. Discerning his musical talent, his parents, without further delay enrolled him for initial training in Carnatic Classical Music. Later, he was exposed to Hindustani Classical Music and continued his studies under the tutelage of Sri P R Manjunath, a well known Hindustani musician. At a very young age Siddhartha had already demonstrated tremendous progress and yearned to become a full fledged performing artist in the days to come. Later Master Siddhartha’s good fortune brought him for training under the legendary musician, Pandit Vinayak Torvi ji, Doyen of Gwalior and Kirana Gharana where he is undergoing vigorous training in the Gurukul system from the past 8 years.

“Swarateerth Is A Huge Opportunity” – Siddharth Belmannu

Swartheerth celebrates its 5th year of classical music festival on the 14th & 15th of November 2020. Swartheerth, a brain child of Pt.Jayatheerth Mevundi ji, a great musician of our nation who has been striving hard from last 5 years in creating awareness and spreading our Sanathana Kalaa to the Sangeet Rasikas in his home town Hubli which is the heart city of music. In this festival he has not only invited the doyens of music of various gharana but also has given equal opportunities to the young budding artists like me. I am very happy and proud to be performing at this year’s prestigious Swartheerth Music Festival supported by Ritwik Foundation. Due to the current pandemic around the globe, Panditji has taken a great step by organising a virtual platform through Sharada Rangamancha making it feasible for music lovers around the globe to witness the graduer of this festival. During the 2 days of the festival, I will be performing in the morning session on 15th November at 9am, accompanied by Shri. Sagar Bharatraj ji on Tabla and Shri. Gaurav Gadiyar ji on Samvadini. I would like to once again thank Pt.Jayatheerth Mevundi ji and Ritwik foundation for this opportunity.
