L Subhasri, or Srividhya as she is known popularly, hails from a well-known traditional family of musicians. Her father, a great veena player himself, hailed from veena vidwan Thanjavur Varahappaiyar's family. Subhasri started  playing the veena from the age of 6 and started giving concerts from the age of 10 in schools as well as for the public. She trained under her guru and father, Late Thanjavur G Lakshmanan for nearly 20 years till his demise in 1998.  Subashri has accompanied her father in many classical veena concerts apart from giving solo performances under his guidance.

She has widened her repertoire by playing accompaniment for classical dancers in India and abroad as well as for light music troupes. With her keen mind and willingness to expand her knowledge, Subhasri learnt Nattuvangam from the well-known Chennai institution "Kala Peetam" under Guru Seetharama Sharma.  Apart from playing the veena, she now does Nattuvangam also for renowned dancers in India and abroad for the past four years. In that capacity, she has performed all over India, UK, South Africa, Mauritius and Japan.
