The Malladi Brothers namely Sreerama Prasad and Ravi Kumar hail from a family of illustrious musicians of Andhra Pradesh.

They had their initial training under their father Sri Malladi Suri Babu, a disciple of Sri Voleti Venkateswarulu and Sangeetha Kalanidhi Sri Nedunuri Krishnamurthy. Under the able guidance of the latter, they were groomed into successful concert performers. They also had the privilege of training under Sangeetha Kalanidhi Dr. Sripada Pinakapani, Guru of both Sri Nedunuri and Sri Voleti. Representing the inimitable 'Pani-Bani'(Pinakapani style) Malladi Brothers are known for their perfect sruthi aligned renditions with profound commitment to classicism.
