About the maestro:
Born into a family of musicians in Rudrapatna in Hassan district in Karnataka, R K Suryanarayana (1937-2003) had a unique style with which he mesmerized his audience. A child prodigy, RKS mastered veena under the tutelage of his illustrious father R.S Keshavamurthy, a highly revered musician in the court of the Mysore kings. He tuned his instrument to perfection and created an aural spell as his fingers struck, strummed and plucked the strings. Highly articulate and erudite, he was at home with both composing music and sahitya.
He has toured extensively within India and abroad and has won several prestigious awards like the Kannada Rajyotsava Day Award, ‘Kalaimamani’, ‘Yaz Vendhan’, ‘Veena Gana Maharishi’, ‘Veena Visarada’, ‘Vainika Sironmani’- just to name a few.
