Madurai T N Seshagopalan

An hour of music by the accomplished musician in connection with his birthday on September 5.

Madurai T N Seshagopalan is an artiste of wide-ranging abilities. He is one of the most versatile and creative musicians on the scene now. Over the last three decades and more, Seshagopalan has explored various aspects of Carnatic music in a distinctive manner that has given him a special place. Though primarily a vocal musician, Seshagopalan is also proficient in playing the veena and the keyboard, to the level that he has made recordings on both instruments. Of course, he has intermittently given veena concerts, too. Another facet to him is his avatar as a Harikatha artiste, which also showcases his wide reading, and his abilities as a presenter. He has presented Harikathas on topics such as the Kamba Ramayanam. One celebrated and engaging Harikatha of his is on his guru's guru - 'parama guru', as Seshagopalan refers to him - Harikesanallur Muthiah Bhagavatar. This programme plays an hour of Madurai T N Seshagopalan's music, including one piece on the veena.
