R.K.Shriramkumar is a simple and unassuming person, adored by his students, friends and by musicians alike. His easy accessibility however does not let him compromise on his musical values. A concert by RKS means that the hall rings with sweetness, bhava and raga essence giving delight to all. He is able to create this beauty wherever he performs as he has internalised the music and is eternally in worship of music devathas, in the temple of Sangeetham. Today, 16th July is the day the legend Smt.D.K.Pattammal left us for her heavenly abode. It is highly appropriate to celebrate this day with the Violin solo of R.K.Shriramkumar who started his career accompanying Pattamma Amma. Pattamma Amma was indeed very fond of him and her blessings will always be with him. It is our good fortune that Shri I.Sivakumar, Pattamma Amma’s son is going to accompany Shriramkumar in today’s concert with H.Sivaramakrishnan Ghatam. Do be with us today 16th July at 6.15pm at Ragasudha, for Ramapriya Arts Foundation. There is live webcast for those rasikas who are not able to come at parivadini music youtube channel
This concert is about Namma Chennai. We the proud residents of Singaara Chennai live in this grand city which is a beautiful mix of the modern and the traditional. Chennai may also be the seat of Carnatic Music, but when we generally speak of kshetrams, we often forget about the magnificent temples in Chennai. In fact, this city has many Carnatic compositions to its glory by many a saintly composer from as early as thevaram and divya prabandham. The bright youngster Ameya Karthikeyan has taken up this challenging theme of an “Only Chennai” concert which she is going to present tomorrow 13th July, 2022 at 6.15pm. She is accompanied by the talented musician V.Deepika on the Violin and the extremely gifted youngster Adharsh Devarajan on the mridangam . This concert is supported in memory of Dr.Andal and Shri. V.Ananthanarayanan by their family. Naada Inbam is grateful for their continued contribution for the cause of good music. On the auspicious occasion of Guru Poornima tomorrow let us enjoy the divine flavor of the Temples in and around Chennai with this young team. Do be with us at Ragasudha.

If SVK was a die-hard traditionalist, seeking out the glory of the veteran masters, he was equally alive to the talent of the youngsters. This concert features a team of buds of yesteryear who have blossomed to become radiant flowers in the garden of Carnatic music. Aishwarya Vidya Raghunath from Bangalore possesses vidwat beyond her years. She is accompanied by another vidwan who plays like one with triple the experience he has- Rahul, the hall favourite. Praveen Sparsh, would certainly have been among SVK’s favourites had he been playing in his time, and no wonder, being the Grandson of the renowned Tanjore Upendran. As for B.S.Purushottam who was a super talented youngster those days , the metamorphosis into a frontliner kanjira artiste is phenomenal indeed. This concert is sure to thrill the founder of Naada Inbam , Sri SVK. Do come to this concert tomorrow 17th April,2022 at 6.15pm which will also be webstreamed on your favourite Parivadini music youtube channel at
