We still have not identified the 'elusive' Music gene. Again there is the issue of "Nature or Nurture' among immediate family. But there are manifestations with distant ancestors. Pl cite them if you know of any. One that we know of is:

HH Svaathi ThiruNAL ....... (Our) Prince Rama Varma.

While a bit of music here and there in the family helps, it is more the nurturing of it that counts, I think. You may hear a child sing beautifully and you ask the mother, 'so, you come from a musical family?'--the answer is, 'not to my knowledge, no music in my husband's family either'. Both parents being rasikAs and their listening to music at home is a big influence on the child. It also explains that 'elusive ' music gene the psychologist mentions above--that which the child derived from
an unknown ancestor of yore.
While the professionals do research for years, it is easy for lay persons to come to conclusions in a flash! Pardonnez moi, CML...

L. Subramaniam, L Shankar, L. Vaidyanathan - (siblings)
L brothers - Lalita and Nandini - (uncles and nieces)
Pallavi Gopala Iyer - Lalgudi Siblings - (father-children)

AFAIK, Pallavi Gopala Iyer was a pre-trinity composer and the father of Lalgudi siblings, Lalgudi Gopala Iyer, was a composer cum musician.

The Rudrapatnam Brothers, RN Thyagarajan and RN Taranathan, and their sister RN Srilatha are children of another brother of RK Srikantan, RK Narayanswamy.
