    Thanks for the marvelous coverage of K. S. Resmi. I have attended several of her classes, performances and programs in the U.S. – at Towson University, Goucher College, the University of Maryland and the Sri Siva Vishnu Temple just outside of Washington, DC. The rich tonal quality, range and rhythms of her voice are incredible and she performs masterful arrangements of the music.
