Good to see that Sankari Krishnan is from the LGJ family. I thought GJRK's wife was Lalitha Krishnan the reviewer in Hindu. Sri N Ramani is a disciple of TRM. Is he also related to him ?

Wow, quite a network of family relations.

Ravi: Can you put in the relationships in your list?

Nagaraj: Good one on your 'relationship' to your guru..

Given this many, may be a shorter list would be the ones who do not have such family connections/networks ;) Sanjay is probably in such a stand-alone category so far.

Thanks Ravi for the updates to your list with relationships. I did not know about the Mali-Ramani relationship.

BTW, Sangeetha bolts Krishna out of the standalone list ;)

R.K. Srikantan's son Ramakanth
V.V. Sadagopan's sister Jayalakshmi Santhanam, sister-in-law Rukmani Sundararajan; cousin's wife Anantalakshmi Sadagopan--and her nephew is Madurai Sundar!
Saralaya Sisters.
Radha Viswanthan's granddaughter Aishwarya sings with her grandmother now.
Sanjay is the great nephew of Rukmani Rajagopalan.

My son was asking me why in India we are fascinated about discussing relationships and resemblances? I had to tell him it has all got to do with music :)

"Judges son become a judge and pauper's son remain a pauper" is a a fact with some exception. In music the progeny must be carrying the genes of their parents and grand parents and so several musicians in the same family! Any truth to this statement with some exceptions?

Hey, we forgot our own - Manakkal Rangarajan - Prema Rangarajan, Manakkal Sriram -- husband, wife (both vocal), son - mridangam..

Also - Mambalam sisters, vocal; hemalatha - violin, K.S.Rangachari - kanjira!!

We also forgot -- DKJ's daugher - sukanya... she is singing off and on - hope to see more of her in chennai season

We have M.Charasekhar's daughter, accompanying him on violin.

Was rukmani rajagopalan performing artist (Sanjay's aunt)

Papanasam sivan - rukmani ramani - papanasam ashok ramani (composer/singer - grand father ; mother singer ; grandson singer)
