KarthikIyer has over 20 years of classical carnatic experience, starting from the age of 8, captivating audiences with his soulful voice and emotion-led violin pieces across ‘sabhas’ and other venues. Seeking to broaden his horizons, he started playing in the Indian film industry, with AR Rahman, Imman, Devi Sri Prasad and other notable music directors. He composed a song for a Bollywood movie.
