R K Suryanarayana

A concert by the vainika and composer, R K Suryanarayana.

R K Suryanarayana hails from Rudrapatnam, the cradle of Carnatic music in Karnataka. Right from his childhood, he trained with his father R S Kesavamurthy, Asthana Vidwan at the court of Mysore. The precocious Suryanarayana performed at the age of seven before the maharaja of Mysore. The 23-stringed veena that he played, with its sympathetic strings, is a family heirloom treasured for three centuries. R K Suryanarayana had also acted in a Kannada film. He received sevaral awards and titles such as Malayamarutha, Veena Chakravarthi, Bharatha Vainika Ratna, Nada Jyothi and Kalaimamani.
