Hello everyone,

I've just joined the forum, although I have been browsing for quite a while. I'm only starting to get into CM, and I have very little knowledge of the technical aspects (of this or any other sort of music!), but I enjoy it nevertheless. I am a Malayali, but I've spent most of my life here in England and right now I'm an undergraduate student. I'm a bit of an amateur linguist and quite interested in the sahitya aspect of CM (I don't even like listening to a kriti without having a copy of the sahitya at hand!) and I've been studying Sanskrit on and off in my spare time.

Welcome Kannan. Nice to have a linguist amongst us. You will find quite a few sahityapriyas around here ( sticklers if I may, affectionately ;) ) and you will be right at home.

kannan - welcome aboard. Having lyrics before you listen to the song will be a tough one as no body knows what the artist will be singing unless you choose to listen to recorded songs only after having the lyrics. Good luck to you and wish you a long musical journey

Hello, I'm Luis from the border Mexico-USA, my language is Spanish. I don't have any Indian ancestry.
I enjoy listening and watching videos of Carnatic music, and reading about it and their artists.
I also play the duff while listening to hindu, catholic, buddhist, sikh and jain devotional songs.

Bienvenido, Luis. Glad to have you join us.
Like Ravi (rshankar), I am also curious about the origins of your interest in Carnatic music.

Thanks for the welcome.
I participate in wikipedia spanish in themes about India and music, among other topics, and on the net I discovered videos like this:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WJbiILmfuPc
then gradually I became interested in Indian classical music (especially Carnatic), first with percussion instruments, then melodic instruments, theory, composers, now vocal artists. Indian classical singing is difficult to digest for foreigners, I think they prefer instrumental music.

By the way, does any gentleman know who is the mridangam player in this performance?

Dear All: Belated Pongal wishes. Hope the festivities bring lots of music and auspiciousness in your lives.
I guess I broke the convention by not posting in the new members thread. Have been here for a few months now.
I am an ordinary rasika of CM who migrated from enjoying/memorizing film music tunes to CM due to circumstances/people around. Live in California. Was a silent reader for a few months, but the venBa buff thread was too attractive/inspiring to keep quiet. Have made a few posts there.
Very glad and honoured to meet all of you rasikas/poets. Regards & love.

Dear all,
I am Sukanya . To be true I haven't learnt music ever.Hoping for a chance to learn sooner.I have joined "Rasikas" to gain knowledge about music and help a friend of mine who has a good skill in singing.Can someone tell me a renowned carnatic vocal guru nearby koramangala or electronic city? so that my friend can start learning carnatic properly.I really want to help him because of the skills and dediction he has towards music though he is not trained.Thanks in advance.

Welcome Sukanya and Vivek: Sukanya I would suggest your friend approach Jayanthi Kumaresh--the Veena player( niece of Llgudi Jayaraman and w/o of Kumaresh of the Ganesh-Kumaresh Duo)--she lives in bangalore.

She is a busy performing artiste so that her teaching commitments may be tight. However she is one of the best teachers I have known and some of her students rave about her teaching--but your friend better be prepared for the Lalgudi School's penchant for rigor and discipline.

Good Luck!!!

i am reading a lot in dance/music these days as my daughter is planning to do an arangetram in california bay area. i am discussing pros and cons in Natya forum. it is very heartening to see there is a forum to support these activities, having grown up in north india and not exposed to dance/music, i am appreciating the art and need for a "good" teacher
