All Music Guide:
An entrancing and exciting vocalist, Sudha Ragunathan's work has been strongly championed by Dr. Winston Banchacharam's Nanuet, NY-based Amutham label. She learned from the acclaimed songstress M.L. Vasanthakumari. In June 1988 she was awarded the title Amutha Isai Vani (a Tamil acknowledgement of the nectar-sweet divinity of her voice) by the Ikankai Thamil Sangam organization in the U.S.A. in recognition of her achievements for Tamil song. She is pictured with this award on Tamil Melodies from Amutha Isai Vani Sudha Ragunathan (Amutham WS 001). Her voice is a joy, and on the strength of her Amutham output an exploration of her recordings on AVM and EMI India is warranted.
