Karaikudi R Mani

A programme on the master of the mridangam, in connection with his birthday on September 11.

Karaikudi Mani, who is one of the top percussionists, is a master of the mridangam. He started performing at the age of 8 and as a young artiste, he was known as Master Mani. In his late 60s today, he is seen as a mridangist with a rare understanding and mastery over the art of mridangam playing. His passion for the instrument has made him undertake many projects and formulate innovative concepts with rhythm as the central theme. This programme includes interview excerpts, apart from information on the musician, and features songs for which he has provided mridangam accompaniment. This programme is in connection with Karaikudi Mani's birthday on September 11.
