Baradwaj Raman - Veena Wizard [2 CDs]
Baradwaj Raman is among the few leading young Carnatic Vainikas today. He was five years old when his illustrious grandfather Padma Bhushan Veena Virtuoso S.Balachander passed away. However, his inspired musical creativity is pure SB Bani. Initially a student of Smt Padmavathi Ananthagopalan, from a tender age, Baradwaj as a performing artiste, takes audiences down nostalgia lane, bringing back memories of classicists of a bygone era with the intensity of his music. In this concert recorded live before an invited studio audience, Baradwaj is accompanied by Vijay Natesan on the mridangam and Chandrashekara Sharma on the Ghatam. ** Tracks: 1.
