Musician

ram_mridangam

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 rramkr@gmail.com if you are interested in a performance or in learning music.

  2. Hello Ram, I am an ardant lover of Carnatic Music although I am not a musician. I am working for RailTel Corporation of India Limited at Bangalore as Manager (Key Account – Carrier & IP-2 Services). However I have a desire to do something on my own and conceptualised some Business idea (still in its budding stage of course). I gave a start to my Concept Business by way of getting manufactured the idols and statues of Saint Musicians from Indian Classical Music – both Carnatic and Hindustani, total numbering approximately 200 personalities right from Narada, Tumbura, Swararajanuta, Tyagaraja, Tukaram, Jayadeva etc. etc. etc. I got the dies and moulds of all those Saint Musicians. I am only thinking how to start as the volume of business is exclusive and in large scale and hence if started once, then it should be taken forward with all precision standards and deligency. I desire to introduce all the range of idols in different sizes (12 inch to 2 ft height) in porcilin importantly and also with paper machie, POP, rexin, marble and many more….

    Can you help me out in suggesting any right person who would be interested to carry forward this gigantic task?

    With regards,

    Musically,
    KVK Chakravarthy

  3. Hi Ram

    It was really interesting to go through your travelogue on Le Auroville resort. I was trying to get some information about the place and I finally landed on your blog. Also noticed, that you are an ardent follower of carnatic music. Keep the good job going. If you are likely to be in chennai, during November, please do cover Bharat Sangeet Utsav of Carnatica.Com. They really do stage some leading Hindustani musicians programme, Which can enlighten many North Indians in Chennai. This is a humble suggestion, because I find people from different walks of life visit your blog.
