FIRST VEENAI RECITAL (article first published : 2006-02-16)

In January, Prinola Naidoo (19) gave what is believed to be the first Veenai recital in South Africa.

A large stringed instrument, the Veenai requires discipline and dedication and this 19 year old former Newlands resident successfully completed her Veenai practicum in Karnatic music. Her teacher Thirumugam Murugan commended Prinola for staying the course as many students drop out of class because of the demands of the instrument.

Prinola Naidoo started playing the Veenai at age ten and maintains the instrument has taught her to remain calm and control her short temper. She also studies modern dancing and is soon to graduate in the art of Bharatha Natyam.
