Sincere condolences to the family and sishya parampara of Sikkil Bhaskaran . I just googled to find that he was the disciple of Mayavaram Govindaraja Pillai and Kumbakonam rajamanickam pillai . He was born in 1936. He passed away at the age of 85.

Sikkil Bhaskaran has played for three generations ranging from chembai, semmangudi and he was well known to have accompanied the genius mandolin shrinivas.

May we all know from any one about sikkil bhaskaran sir's performing disciples?

Condolences to the family. Never got to hear him live, but always will cherish this reply:

And in the yadukulakambhoji that follows, one could see him being continuous with the vocalist which only that era of accompanists managed to do!
