Radhe Jaggi is classical Bharatanatyam dancer from India and is more popular as daughter of Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev. Radhe Jaggi has also been trained by the seasoned guru Leela Samson. Renowned performers like Alarmel Valli and Madhavi Mudgal inspire her. She married Chennai-based classical vocalist Sandeep Narayan in 2014. She has had the fortune of being trained in Bharatanatyam at Kalakshetra, an arts institution founded by the legendary Rukmini Devi Arundale.
Radhe born in the year 1990 is born of parents Jaggi Vasudev and Vijaya Kumari who met in Mysuru during 1984. In 1992, Vasudev established the Isha Foundation, an organisation headquartered near the city of Coimbatore, as a platform for his spiritual and educational activities. He remains its head until now. The organisation offers yoga programmes under the name “Isha Yoga” and is run “almost entirely” by volunteers. On 22 January 1997, Radhe Jaggi’s mother Vijaya Kumari died at the Isha Yoga Center. A police complaint against Jaggi Vasudev was filed by her parents, alleging dowry harassment.
Radhe attended school at Rishi Valley School. She also attended Karnata to study Bharathanatiyam. Her teacher is the legendary classical dancer, Leela Samson. She was taught the entire aspects of dance and performed her debut stage performance in 2017 during the Golden Jubilee celebration on kalasagaram the festival of music and culture.
The mother of Radhe’s had always longed to become a dancer, and it was possible that her dream was fulfilled when Radhe became a member of Kalakshetra. According to Radhe, “After I completed my studies in Rishi valleyin India, I travelled to Kalakshetra to continue my studies in Bharatanatyam. I’ve been blessed to have trained by a highly experienced teacher such as Leela Samson. For me, legendary musicians like Alarmel Valdi and Madhavi Mudgal have always been an source of inspiration.
For Radhe the dance has always represented the path to move forward in the world. “Bharatanatyam is a sophisticated technique that can be acquired by the hard work. The practice of this art form keeps you focused on your goals in the world.” Radhe has happy memories of her last trip to Hyderabad. “I was here to perform on the Balaji Temple Utsav. The crowd in Hyderabad is extremely receptive. The majority of Bharatanatyam compositions are either Telugu or Sanskrit and this helps the art form be able to reach the highly discerning audience in Hyderabad.” When you consider how her dad’s reaction was to Sadguru Jaggi Vashudev during her first performance Radhe is a bit giddy and states, “He has very sharp eyes. He can see things that I cannot see.”
Radhe has performed in a variety of countries, including South Korea, London and Malaysia. “Abroad audiences are aware and attempts to comprehend the technical skill during a performance. They can appreciate even the smallest of particulars. However, because they haven’t been raised in our society, they sometimes do not see the larger image. I’ve also toured in The Spanda dancing group from Leela Samson. I’ve been choreographing to create small, artistic works, however my primary focus has been on the classic repertoire. The foundation of each traditional dance work may be identical, but every dancer will have their own innovative approach to bringing the essence of the piece to the forefront,” says Radhe.

Sandeep Narayan was born into a family of musicians and music lovers. A house nearly always filled with visiting musicians and students of South Indian classical (Carnatic) music, Sandeep was exposed to this ancient tradition from before he was born. Although his decision to relocate from Los Angeles to Chennai in 2006 in order to take up music as his full-time profession was unprecedented, it did not come as a shock to those who knew the extent of his passion. After undergoing his initial training in Los Angeles from his mother Smt. Shubha Narayan, Sandeep received advanced lessons from the revered musicologist Calcutta Sri K.S. Krishnamurthy in Chennai. After Sri Krishnamurthy’s demise in 1999, Sandeep began training under the well known vocalist, Sri Sanjay Subrahmanyan.
