BLACK DAY FOR VEENA....................

A devastating loss for the field of veena! Sri. Trivandrum R.Venkataraman, great veena player has no parallel in veena aesthetics. His astounding high gnana, great contribution to the carnatic field and veena in particular and his absolute dedication to veena will remain in the hearts of all his admirers like myself.
Today, the day of his demise being Bahula Panchami, the great veena vidwan has reached the abode of Saint Thyagaraja, whose compositions he had played all through his life of nada yoga.

we had lost a great legend who was with us. A personification in bringing nuances of music through his veena.
