Haridwaramangalam A K Palanivel

A programme featuring the tavil vidwan in connection with his birthday on April 10.

Haridwaramangalam A K Palanivel is one of the most popular and respected tavil vidwans today. He has accompanied all the top nagaswaram artistes, and has also played along with other instruments such as the violin, flute, saxophone, clarinet and mandolin. For all this, he faced initial opposition when he expressed a desire to learn the tavil as a young boy, and that too, from his musician father. However, later, his father became his first guru, too. From there, Palanivel's rise was quick, as he proved a quick learner, an attractive performer, and a creative artiste of high calibre. He is now a recognized name and arguably the most popular tavil vidwan. This programme has renditions where Haridwaramangalam A K Palanivel has played the tavil, and is in connection with Palanivel's birthday on April 10.
