#1 Palghat Ramprasad

Post by rajeshnat » 17 Oct 2018, 16:31

A musician who in my opinion is intensely classical . His music in my words is more like stepping inside a very gentle river from inside, once you put your feet inside the undercurrent pull is great. Needless to say his father Rajaraman has trained him,and his paternal grandfather is the mrudangam maestro Palakkad Mani Iyer.

I just said the below in a review of his a day back

If you metaphorically think a concert is like entering a river . Palghat Ramprasad is a musician where from outside it may appear the river is bit more calm but as you keep your foot in the river the undercurrent pull is much much more deep. As I was listening I saw his father Rajaraman cheering his son ,the very first concert when I attended Ramprasad in sastri hall (that review is either here or in sangeetham.com jungle ), Rajaraman and Palakkad Raghu cheered Ramprasad . Ramprasad has amazing male voice(a bit of ramnad krishnan , KVN and DKJ is there). I was particularly impressedd that his direction is also going in the direction of bit more speed like the himalayan giants like MMI-SSI-GNB since last time I heard.
