The Tamil Isai Sangam has chosen the Bombay Sisters to receive its Isai Perarignar Award for 2006.

The sisters, C. Saroja and C. Lalitha, are known for their musical concerts on the Thiruppugazh, Thiruppavai, Thiruvembavai and Divyaprabhandam. They were trained by stalwarts Musiri Subramanya Iyer and T.K. Govinda Rao.

The sisters are already recipients of the Kalaimamani award.

Governor of Uttar Pradesh T.V. Rajeshwar will present the award at a ceremony to be held at Raja Annamalai Hall on December 21, the inaugural day of the 64th edition of the Tamil music festival of the Sangam.
