Dr. Natesan Ramani

Dr. Natesan Ramani

Revered and much-loved Dr. Natesan Ramani, a legend in his own lifetime, represents the best of Carnatic sacred music. He touches the hearts of his audiences, as Lord Krishna with his flute did the hearts of his gopies (female cowherd devotees), with his simple soprano bamboo flute. Like Panna Lal Ghosh, Dr. Ramani, using a longer flute, can play north Indian ragas with equal ease, which are both enchanting and powerful. His ensemble includes his illustrious son Thiagarajan and the brilliant percussionist Thanjavur Ramadas on the Mridangam.

“Pure and unadorned like the voice of a boy soprano" and "a vigorous explosion of sound...complex and subtle". –Jill Sykes, Sydney Morning Herald.
