Bhavadhaarini Anantaraman is a disciple of Sangeetha Kalanidhi Smt.D.K.Pattammal for more than 18 years. Bhavadhaarini hails from the family of veteran composer Mayuram Vishwanatha Shastry. Born and brought up in a music environ there was a natural environment to learn carnatic music. But Bhavadhaarini was more self taught and her foundations were not structured by a formal music tution learning, Sarali Geetham or Varnam.
When Bhavadhaarini was only 5 years old, she happenned to visit the Music class with her mother Mrs. Nalini to meet Smt. D.K.Pattammal. Sangeetha Kalanidhi Smt.D.K.Pattammal heard her sing and spotted the talent in Bhavadhaarini and immediately took her up in her musical tutelage saying "Indha kuzhandhaikku naan daan guru" and those words began Music for Bhavadhaarini's life.
