T V Gopalakrishnan

An hour of music of the all-round musician in connection with his birthday on June 11.

T V Gopalakrishnan can go by various descriptions - Carnatic vocalist, Hindustani musician, mridangist, violinist, voice culture expert, teacher, to name a few. In a concert career of over 70 years, T V Gopalakrishnan has been both traditionalist and experimenter simultaneously. Starting off with Carnatic vocal and mridangam, he later added violin and Hindustani vocal to his portfolio. His areas of musical interest activity have straddled classical music on one side and film and pop music on the other, and his associations with these genres have been diverse. His students include, apart from a number of classical musicians who have made it big, musicians and composers of popular music, such as Ilaiyaraaja and A R Rahman.
