CHENNAI: Her name’s one among the 50 best instrumentalists in the world. And her release Album Kala has been selected as one of the 50 best recordings in  the world. Violin maestro Kala Ramnathis no doubt  name to reckon with in the world of music. Born into a family of music legends like T N Krishnan and N Rajam, the violinist went on to become a eminent disciple of the legendary vocalist Pandit Jasraj. Slowly, she got opportunities to perform at all the major music festivals across India, as well as in most prestigious venues across the world.

Some of the places where she has performed include Sydney Opera House, Queen Elizabeth Hall in London and  Carnegie Hall in New York to name a few.

She presented her hindustani Indian classical violin concert in Aditya Kalyanpur’s (tabla player) company for Rasika Ranjani Sabha at Dakshinamoorty Auditorium in Chennai recently. The Sindhu Bhairavi rendered by her, was not just highly enchanting, but also brought out the musical aesthetics and euphonious charm.

Kala’s presentation, with a studiously developed style of musical expression, intensified  with strict adherence to manodharma, kept the audience in rapt attention. The young tabla maestro Kalyanpur  gripped the audience, revealing the robustness of his training.

Aditya, who is making Indian classical music more acceptable to rasikas, by establishing the appreciation for this traditional art form in the US and the non-profit Shyamal Music Foundation in Mumbai, has indepth knowledge of the different gharana style schools. Overall, Kala Ramnath’s violin recital, truly reflected the saying of Jacques Barzun. “Music is intended and designed for sentient beings who have hopes and purposes and emotions.”
