Some clippings from Magazine Reviews…
“Suchithra has a fine blend of sweet and brika voice that suits nice expressions for classical vocal – Dhinamani
“She is 18, wears only Saree and Salwars, does not go much to movies, spends her most time for music class and practicing Harikatha. She took us for a divine journey on her Musical Discourse. When she began, her eyes closed, losing herself in the Magic of Seetha Kalyanam from Ramayana, choked the entire audience into Bhakthi” – Indian Express
“Her singing showed her excellent grounding in carnatic music… in particular, rendering of Bhooparipalanam (paras), Bhuvaniyil (mukari) and maindhar illa vazhvum (anandabhairavi) were flawless with nicely expressed manobhava” – The Hindu
It was an altogether different experience for Navi Mumbaikars, who gathered in big turnout to listen the Harikatha – A unique art of story telling together with suitable songs, by the Child Prodigy B.Suchithra. She is one of the youngest artistes to perform Traditional Harikatha in India. This musical wizard confined the big gathering with her excellent music and spontaneous jokes in every gap. Her gifted voice made the magical moment when the entire audience started clapping to the rhythm during her Abhang and Bhajan songs. No doubt it was very different and divine experience, Vashi fans ever had” – Times of India
“Her musical foundation is strong as she grew in such a musical surrounding of doyens” – Kalki
“Suchithra struck a neat and perfect balance between the song and narrative, without one overwhelming the other. This young lady has great future with her growing talents – The Hindu
