Carnatic Music and Dance are getting significant importance among Canadian Tamils. We recently witnessed 50 years of teaching excellence of Mrs. Thanathevi Mithradeva's and her School's ( Sruti Laya Fine Arts Academy) 20th Anniversary Celebration event at Richmond hill Theater for Performing Arts.
Event was well planned and organized by her students.

This is the first of it's kind anyone witnessed in Canadian Tamil events. A senior teacher who has put more than 50 years in music industry had an amazing support from Musicians and Dance Teachers.
