Soolamangalam Sisters

Soolamangalam Jayalakshmi (Tamil: சூலமங்கலம் ஜெயலட்சுமி) and Soolamangalam Rajalakshmi (Tamil: சூலமங்கலம் ராஜலட்சுமி), popularly known as Soolamangalam Sisters (Tamil: சூலமங்கலம் சகோதரிகள்) were Carnatic music sister-pair vocalists and musicians known for their devotional songs in Tamil. They were early singers in the trend of duo singing in Carnatic music, which started in the 1950s, with performers like Radha Jayalakshmi, and later continued by Bombay Sisters, Ranjani-Gayatri, Mambalam Sisters, Bangalore Sisters and Priya Sisters. The Soolamangalam Sisters are best known for singing the Kanda Shasti Kavasam, a hymn on the Hindu god Muruga.
