Wonderful neyveli venkatesh, he has the fastest fingers . We all from core rasikas once went to neyveli santhanagopalan home atleast 14 years back for a rasikas organized concert .That day Venkatesh was playing kanjira for a rare Thanjavur sankara iyer in vocal supported by Lalgudi krishnan and Tiruvarur Bhakthavatsalam. All his learnings were tavil like and then graduated with energy to mrudangam . He also has a great love and semi patron relationship to one of the finest sabhas of chennai - Pozhichalur Sangeetha Sabha.

He always smiles and lets only his mrudangam talk. He was and always is a true A plus plus mrudangam artist. Best wishes for him to continue with his excellence.

Seen encouraging an ArangETram artiste. You can see his soft side.

Name suggests that she is from Srilankan origin. Her parents must be really proud!

Srilankan tamizh community is going places!

It's probably in London, I know the ghatam artist.

Sri Lankan cummunity went places, of dire necessity, decades ago. They went places and did stuff. Carnatic music, in London, is in safe hands.

May be that applies to tamizh as well.

By the way, the safety of Carnatic music is always assumed to be in peril and you must be some Nth in the illustrious line of speakers who have declared Carnatic music is safe in somebody's hands :lol:

More than about the status of Carnatic music, it shows what happens when a community cherishes their own treasures and seeks out knowledge. They don't have to be recognized by anybody, nor anybody kept it away from them.... is what I intended to say!
