Meghana (Meg) Murthy began her Bharatanatyam dance career at the age of 5 from Smt. Vidhya Subramanian. As a dancer with Lasya Dance Company, she danced in multiple productions in the Bay Area and completed her Arangetram in 2009. During college, Meg traveled nationwide to compete with the collegiate Raas team, GW Raas. After graduation, she continued her Bharatanayatam training with Sahasra Sambamoorthi at Navatman, and is now a teacher at the school. She recently performed in Navatman's Diwali production: "Mahabharata Part 1:Of Vengeance and Promises" as a lead character and dance captain. Meg has also performed at Lincoln Center twice, Holi Hai NYC, and at the We Are India Gala.
Meg’s Carnatic journey began at the age of 5 under the tutelage of Smt. Jayanthi Umesh. A student of Mahatee Music Academy, she trained for 13 years and participated in and won multiple music competitions, including the Bay Area OSAAT competitions. At 18, she performed her first solo Carnatic concert, singing 10 different compositions over the course of 1.5 hours. After taking a hiatus from music, Meg returned to Navatman as a vocal instructor teaching the basic foundations of Carnatic music, Sarale Varses and Geethes, to young students (pre-k and under 10).
