The violin is unarguably the world’s most popular instrument. Violin is an integral part of any Carnatic music concert for almost a century now. Violin found a natural home in the classical music of South India where it is now an indispensable part of a vocal, instrumental or dance performance. It is tuned differently and played using an entirely different technique to suit the needs of Carnatic music.
He uses his fingers and those strings to make mesmerizing music that feels so soothing… he is none our than Kaipattoor Radhakrishnan… a violin magician. He creates illusions with his violin.
