M D Ramanathan

The music of the one-and-only MDR, whose death anniversary falls on April 27.

M D Ramanathan can certainly be called unique. His style of singing is not dramatically different from the mainstream, with his penchant for the chauka kaala, he also brings in that extra dimension to his music with well-placed pauses and musical insight. MDR's music also qualifies to be called inimitable - it is what you have or don't, that kind of highly personal expression surely is not something that can be cultivated. By singing for himself - or rather, for music itself - he ensured that his music had that for people who were looking for something more from music.
