Jayanth is one of the most sought - after flautists in the carnatic music arena. A prodigy, driven by divine in-born talent and bubbling enthusiasm in bamboo flute, he was naturally drawn into the tutelage of his grandfather, Flute Maestro Late T. S. Sankaran (prime disciple of Flute Mali) in a traditional guru-sishya parampara since the age of five..
Jayanth gave his first solo flute concert at an age of seven. His ability to play Ragam Tanam Pallavi in three speeds (thrikaalam) surprised the senior accompanists and the audience on that occasion.
He was awarded ‘A’ grade by All India Radio, Doordarshan when he was just 21.He has been a regular feature in AIR and Doordarshan concerts.
He has a refined fingering and blowing technique which enables him to switch over to the BASS and DOUBLE BASS flutes with ease to cover lower octaves, which is acclaimed as a hallmark in his recitals. Jayanth naturally demonstrates depth and proximity to the lyrical aspect of a composition, given that he belongs to the pioneering school of Legendary Flute MALI. His spontaneity, perfect pitching coupled with expressive and bhava laden rendering has won him appreciation from his co-artists and music connoisseurs across the globe. He is known for his powerful blowing technique enabling him to produce melodious base tonal effects in the lower octave.
He has performed over 1200 solo flute recitals in major centres and festivals in India, United States of America, United Kingdom, Canada, Switzerland, Singapore, Bali, Dubai, Kuwait and Re-Union Islands.
He has been accompanied by doyens of carnatic music like Padma Vibhushan Umayalpuram K.Sivaraman, Padma Bhushan Sri T.V.Gopalakrishnan. He has also performed jugalbandhi with noted Hindustani flautist Pt.Ronu Majumdar and Pt.Ashwani Shankar – Shehnai.
