About this album

The heritage that Maharajapuram S Ramachandran carries is awesome by any standards. He represents the third generation of top ranking performing artistes in his family. His father Maharajapuram V Santhanam and grandfather Maharajapuram R Viswanatha Iyer both being artistes of very high stature. He also holds the distinction of being the seventh generation of disciples of Thyagaraja.

Ramachandran initially learnt music from his grandfather and later from his father to whom he provided vocal accompaniment in concerts. He gave his debut performances as a solo vocalist in 1978 and has since then been steadily climbing the ladder success. He has won numerous awards and titles and has given many performances in India and abroad.

Ramachandran has not chosen to rest on his family's laurels. he has created an image for himself through his music, based on creative construction solidly grounded in the fundamental lakshana and lakshya. Bhava is key in his rendition, bringing back the scenario and context in which the kritis were composed.

Given these factors, it is indeed a blessing that Maharajapuram Ramachandran, a science graduate by qualification, chose his true vocation and enriched the listening pleasure of rasikas.
