In Apr 2006, as a 9 ½ years old , I was blessed with an unexpected opportunity.

I was destined to have my initiation in to the music world  at the Lotus Feet of Lord Lakshmi Narasimhar in Oonjal Seva in the Swati Utsavam in the Navaneetha Krishna Temple at Nanganallur, Chennai, India.   Yes, it was an auspicious beginning for me, my elder brother Ram, who played Violin and our best friend Santosh Kumar, who played Mridangam. Not many are blessed with such an auspicious beginning at the tender age.

JOINING ISSAI MAZHALAI GROUP OF SHRI ABASWARAM RAMJHI

At this juncture, destiny guided me through our family friend Smt Sesha Kalyanaraman of Nanganallur.  This paved the way for me to join a pool of highly talented young artists.  Shri Abaswaram Ramjhi’s “Issai Mazhalai” (Music Infants) was a professional music group, comprising of only school children.   Thanks to Shri Ramjhi, I performed concerts in some of the Sabhas in Chennai, Mumbai Shankukhananda Sabha and Delhi Tamil Sangam at a tender age with the accompaniment of similarly talented children on violin, mridangam and ghatam.
