Sankari has also had the rare privilege of rendering special Veena & Voice concerts alongside Dr. Karaikudi S. Subramanian, at many places in India, Germany and Finland. This concept is a rewarding experience as it poses challenges to the sensibilities in the tonal production.

Sankari skillfully interacted with other top musicians from the US, Germany, Serbia, Russia, Taiwan, Columbia, Kosova, Sweden, Mexico, Scotland and Netherland and they were successful in presenting two concerts after the residential programme. During the course of the Residency, Sankariís depiction of South Indian Classical Music in her lecture-demonstration cum music workshop to fellow musicians was highly appreciated and kindled in them a desire to learn Carnatic Music.
