I am an award winning professional musician and educator who has performed in more than 500 concerts. I play the mridangam which is a percussion instrument used in Indian classical music.

I learnt mridangam from Shri T.R. Dhandapany and the legendary Padma Vibhushan Sangeeta Kalanidhi Dr. Umayalpuram K. Sivaraman. I also trained in singing Hindustani Dhrupad classical music with the renowned Padma Shri Gundecha Brothers and Ustad Niloy Ahsan.

I teach music to students across the globe with ages ranging from 3 years to 65 years.

Please email me at if you are interested in a performance or in learning music.

  1. Hi!!
    I am really surprised to learn about your blog. It’s really nice that you are writing about the concerts you attend.

    I would like to tell inform you that there is a versatile Vocalist available at chennai and her name is Ms. Bhavadhaarini Anantaraman and she is one of the senior desciple of Smt. D. K. Pattammal.

    You can try to attend some of her concerts and try to add your views as your writing is good.

    Musically Yours

  5. Ram:

    Great blog. I am settled in the US and I was looking for a way to get all the concerts in Chennai when I am here in December (hopefully).

    I was looking for a “small book” which has the “season” concert schedule and is published sometime late in the year. Anyway, I stopped looking once I found your blog. Great blog I must say. Keep up the good work.

    Hope to run into you sometime at some kutchery though I can’t imagine how and I won’t.
