Sri Balakrishna is the worthy recipient of many prestigious awards and honors.
It is creditable that Sri D Balakrishna has taken the flavour of carnatic classical music to foreign shores. As part of his father’s Pancha veena troupe he traveled to Russia in 1987. The year 1988 saw him winning a wide audience in Britain while accompanying his father. Again in the 1991 prestigious Festival of India in Germany he participated successfully in the Pancha veena programme under his father’s guidance. His 2002 tour of the USA was an impressive musical voyage showcasing the unique elegance of the Mysore veena tradition. He represented the Govt. of Karnataka in the Vishwa Kannada Sammelana held in 2006 at Washington, USA and was lauded by the audience for his enchanting performance.
