HN Bhaskar is a Mysuru man also!

Vittal Ramamurthy is also from Karnataka!

And H.K. Venkatram, a forumite too, and R.K.S (his grandfather settled in Chennai, I think).

I think this "tradition" to track artistes by native village/town/state is unhealthy for music as a whole. Also heartened to see that younger artistes have figured this out drop these appendages (similar to caste names from prior generations).

What a wet blanket you are... trying to strip a rational discussion of its regional chauvinism and provincial prejudices! [-x

The analysis of artists from Mysore was only academic .No serious conclusions should be made.

When I glance through the list, it looks as though they are bringing in more of non-Chennai artistes (there, regional and provincial chauvinism on the wane, it seems). I see more of Kerala names too.
Perfection (!) is hard to achieve, but I do see that the list reflects an open-mindedness. A well-shuffled deck of cards, one would say?

Yes, Neyveli Venkatesh could have been included. I did notice a few (?) accompanists being given more than one chance. Wonder why. They could have encouraged a few more of them by not doing so.

Rasikas,

Most of the musicians who get to perform in prime slots every year - The artists generally in their prime still are the ones to get Sangeethakalanidhi title in the years to come.
The following are generally featured every year:
Sanjay Subramanyam,OS Tyagarajan,NRavikiran,Malladi Brothers,Nithyasree,Bombay Jayashree,Unnikrishnan,RaGa sisters,Vijaya siva,Neyveli Santanagopalan,Aruna Sairam

TM Krishna is an exception perhaps this year.

Wondering how v.shankarnarayanan got a chance this year inspite of his below average performance last year?


S Malavika trained in vocal music under Smt Padmavathy Ananthagopalan for years. She is currently learning from Vidwan V. Subrahmanyam, who is a disciple of Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer.

The S-K's daughter learnt Bharatha Natyam so not much chance of performing in December. Maybe in January but then she is pursuing higher studies in the US now.

Some feedback on Majusha Patil.

KNV


Manjusha Patil was featured in Svanubhava 2013 which was held in August in Kalakshetra.

She was the one who, when asked why she had 4 different instruments providing the drone, said she was searching for the perfect 'Sa' with those four.

That comment sent Uday Shankar into paroxysms of ecstasy who then detailed his experiments of attempting to align the sruthi of a tambura with that of a didgeridoo or some such thing....my memory is hazy on that point. You can look up that discussion in the topic Carnatic vs Hindusthani Music.

Saidapet Tamil is probably miles ahead of Washermenpet Tamil! :p

But, I am unable to understand the reference. Are you talking about trying to find the perfect 'Sa'?

You could recommend their names to Nada Inbam!

Yeah, I'll take Saidapettai... now that Kolaikaranpettai has been renamed in (yet another) honour of our city's Ubiquitous Presence! B-)

And about the topic at hand: the Music Academy has a website (recently revamped very aesthetically) where annual conference schedules from 1935 are available. I suggest that some of the opinionators here who are energetically dissecting this year's schedule, spend some time going through the same. It will help you avoid coming off like a noob - unless that's what is desired - when passing off breezy opinion as fact. It will also help you realize that Carnatic Music in general, and the Academy conference in particular did not start around 2001, which is when Internet fora such as this one started becoming popular outlets for well-meaning yet ill-informed opinion! :))

Glad to see Ashwin Anand's (Veena) name in the list. He is extremely talented. I believe he is taking advanced lessons from Smt Vedavalli.

Smt Mala Ramadorai , an unknown name in Hindustani Circle, got a prime slot in MA a few years ago. How ??

It was a package deal as part of heavy corporate sponsorship

Smt Mala is the wife of Sri Ramadorai, the MD of TCS at that time.

Yes Harimau,
Hoping to find the perfect SA by using four tamburas is the same as going to Saidapet bus stand to learn Tamil, thinking that it would help to find several people speaking the language there at the same time.

You see, I don't have too beautiful a memory of that bus stand as my sweaty and crowded bus trips through to IIT on Mount Road weren't exactly pleasant.

Whoa ??!! For the record I think four tamburas are an entirely bad idea :).

Wrong again! It was with more traditional, mainstream instruments like the keyboard.

Here is a great record already created.The Music Academy records show that Sri TN Krishnan made his debut in 1943 (listed as master Krishnan).I thought It must be TNK.
Till 1947,he is listed as Master and from 1948 onwards listed as Mr.He has performed continuously every year most of the times accompanying great Vidwans and later as duet
and trio concerts.He has performed from 1943 - 2013 without any break(?).He is scheduled to perform in this season also.
This is a marvelous achievement by any standards.
Assuming regular performance from 1948 till 2014 is 66 years of performance.
As per the records Sri LGj performed first time in 1948 and Sri MSG performed first time in 1954 at Music Academy.
