The busiest artiste who looks like a rishi

Flutist J B Sruthi Sagar is more of a rishi than a classical music artiste. Once a concert is done, he packs his flute and his backpack, slips into his sandals and walks down the mada veedhis.
His vibhuti is still on his forehead after a long concert.

We met him near Sri Kapali Temple this evening, just to say hello. He is a busy artiste, perhaps the busiest this season.
"How many concerts do you have?"
"About sixty"
"Dance or music . . which do your prefer?"

Many dancers prefer to have him in their team of accompanying artistes. And he often accompanies or plays alongside his sister J B Keerthana, a vocalist.
