Wow... in a world where many established artists have "day jobs," how does a young man come to Chennai from USA and become a full-time pro carnatic musician? Even with family housing and support, it is an amazingly courageous thing to do.

Hats off to him!

I wrote my thoughts about his music in Kutcheri Reviews some days ago. He continues to remind me of Sri KVN, as i listen to his Saveri and Hameer Kalyani, in the GlobalFest youtube videos linked above.

(As if addressing the many wandering around in front of the camera constantly...his Saveri song asks, oh mind, what are you senselessly going after?!!! :tmi: )

And I wonder about (and take issue with) the 'non-slippery American-English' part - makes me wonder if there is a 'slippery' version!! :namaste:

Ravi: I liked his music before, now I like him!

I like that! Need I say? We in North America are very proud of him. After Sandeep, Ramakrishnan Murthy!
Good to know they get together to jam.

Yes,and respectful praNAms to his parents and grandparents :)

I think Rajesh means by slippery version vazha vazhA kozha kozhA. Some ameri(Zhi)cans pronouncing their 'r's thus, and not 'R'olling it like the scots and some of the bhArathvAsis.

A few years ago, when Sowmya presented a lovely program with the youngsters in the Gayana Samaja in Bengaluru, after the concert I happened to be talking with Vidya Kalyanaraman and heard Bharath Sundar and Ramakrishnan murthy chatting. 'nalla' tamizh accent, I thought, for an 'american' kid!

Arasi: That is probably what the writer meant by that non-standard characterization 'non-slippery' ;) but I heard his English in one of his lec-dem, I could not tell he grew up in the U.S.A.
