#1 Kunnakkudi Balamuralikrishna

Post by rajeshnat » 01 Dec 2018, 05:55

Kunnakkudi Balamuralikrishna a great musician had started learning from his father Meenakshisundaram and also from his mom who plays veena (sorry I donot know her name). He has also learnt music from Late vidwan A Sundaresan , Neyveli santhanagopalan. Also he has learnt mrudangam from Guru Karaikudi Mani. He spent most of his time learning music from Guru in General PS Narayanaswamy, he is mostly knows in music circle as PSN student. There is a mention somewhere that he was named balamuralikrishna by their parents with Dr M Balamuralikrishna in mind. I read somewhere that he is also related to Late violin vidwan Kunnakudi Vaidyanathan .

All said , this year 2018 , Karthik Fine Arts has given its award - Isai Peroli to KBMK. To the best of my knowledge this award is given to musicians below the age of 35 or 40 . Atleast to me it is a very prestigious award and there is a great brand recall with this award Isai Peroli. I did see in the engagement column in The Hindu dated Nov 30th,2018 that KBMK is given Isai Peroli

Best wishes and more laurels to vidwan Kunnakkudi Balamuralikrishna
