Kam: Thank you for the link. The website is a treasure trove of wonderful concerts spanning several decades. I am especially intrigued by a wonderful TNS concert with MSN Murthy on violin and Patri Satish Kumar accompanying him on Kanjira!

Sincere congratulations to the distinguished vidwan on his 75th birthday!

The write up starts as though it is about kamalakar Rao , then it dovetails more about PMI .mahavidwan TRS mama's stock mrudangist kamalakar rao who is brilliant but certainly is away from limelight.

Depends on which lamp post one is looking under, I guess. :D
There is more to their relationship than being a stock accompanist.As this Vidwan tearfully narrated the stories of how they travelled to nooks and corners of Andhra(on the evening dedicated to TRS at Arkays.(sometimes standing, in buses)
I would love to have a career like his in my next janma.Day long at the cash counter in the hotel, tapping fingers for practice all day long and playing for great Vidwans in the evening for the love of it. :lol:
More of him here.
