Ramnad Krishnan

Renditions by the 'musician's musician' in connection with his birth anniversary on September 15.

Ramnad Krishnan's music was marked by an ease of rendition that often belied the effort that went into making the vidwan. Krishnan made musical nuances seem like an easy thing to accomplish. Hailing from Alleppey in Kerala, Krishnan became a student of Ramnad Sankarasivam; that’s also when he became Ramnad Krishnan. If GNB considered Ariyakudi as his maanasika guri, it could arguably be said that Ramnad Krishnan considered GNB his maanasika guru, and his singing shows the GNB influence.
