VIJAYAWADA: Rupak Kulkarni, Nagaraju Talluri and Nicolo Melocchi who captivated the audience at Trivenu concert here with their experimental flute fusion, shared their experiences in a candid chat with Express.
Trivenu, a flute fusion by three musicians from different streams of musical idiom, has taken music aficionados to the shores of musical ecstasy.

Rupak Kulkarni, has been a disciple of maestro Hariprasad Chaurasia, since the tender age of 12. Rupak with arduous training and hard work has mastered Dhrupad, Khayal and Tantrakari styles equally well. Rupak has lent his musical prowess to many melodies that have become chart busters.  He has worked with renowned music directors of Bollywood in films such as Kabhi Khushi Kabhi Gham, Fiza, Mr and Mrs Iyer etc, livening up not just the main songs, but also the background scores, eliciting emotions varying from pathos to exuberance.

The Trivenu concert has brought him to the city and left his mark in the hearts of the citizens. ”The experimental grand fusion Trivenu is basically a theme of cultural exchange among the universal trinity of flautists. The idea of having a trigalbandi was conceptualised in the year 2012. I’m quite happy to have performed with my besties, Nagaraju and Nicolo. We want to take this yatra to all the corners of the country.”
The key flautist behind the Trivenu experimental fusion, Nagaraju Talluri, who is an independent flautist and music director, has performed at national and international stages for over two decades. He also scored music for Jagadguru Aadi Shanakara and won best debut mirchi music award. He formed a fusion group by name ‘Harmony Fusion’ and performs various concerts, composing the music himself.

Nagaraju Talluri who is a native of Krishna district, says “The capital city has got the scope of international standards of music where the people must get ready to welcome it by heart.”
He added that the Trivenu was a genre that accommodated native versions.
