Pattabhirama Pandit

A concert by Pattabhirama Pandit, a disciple of Palghat K V Narayanaswamy.

Pattabhirama Pandit's singing style has characteristics of his guru K V Narayanaswamy. However, despite the similarities, Pandit's music is quite distinctive and individualistic. For one, unlike his guru's soft and silken voice, Pattabhirama Pandit has a powerful and energetic one. In addition, he has a lively, open-throated manner of singing. This, together with his infectious stage presence, makes watching him live on stage one of the pleasures of his performance. Pattabhirama Pandit has been steadily moving up the rungs of seniority over the last few years, and his obvious expertise and his engaging presentation style have made him a well-liked musician who is steadily gaining popularity.

Pattabhirama Pandit often sings the main piece of a concert in a very elaborate fashion, taking over an hour and exploring the raga in detail, whether it is a major or minor raga. The highlight of this concert are ragas Kharaharapriya and Varali, and a few compositions that KVN often sang in his inimitable way.
