R. Raghul: One of the favourite disciples of violinist M. Chandrasekaran is R. Raghul who has had eighteen long years of training, first under Vasantha Kannan of Kolkata, then P. Govindarajan (a senior disciple of Chandrasekaran) and finally under the maestro himself for the last ten years. Now twenty four years old and with seven years of solid concert experience, he is one of the busiest young violin accompanists.
His father remembers that Raghul, as a four-year old, would mimic a violinist with two drumsticks in hand. The persistence of this ‘drumstick art’ for two years led to his training in the real stuff in Calcutta. When the family shifted to Chennai and approached Chandrasekaran, he directed the boy to Govindarajan and after he attained sufficient proficiency, the guru himself took the boy under his wing. Now he is a determined professional with a busy schedule of programmes.
Chennai Thyagarajan: He is a seasoned and well accomplished Mridangist. He is able to bring a good blend and balance from the tones emanating from the two side of the mridangam. He is a musician who is able to enhance the aural appeal of a concert by complementing the music with his playing.
Srirangam Ravikrishnan: He is a Ghatam artiste of a high caliber. He has accompanied many top ranking artists.
