Rising talent appeases Malladi Brothers

While the continued interest evinced by the Indian Diaspora in Carnatic Music is encouraging, the rising talent among the younger members of the community is pleasing, a prominent singer has said.

According to Ravi Malladi, parents and elders of the overseas Indian community deserve to be congratulated for providing appropriate avenues for young talents to grow and flourish.

“We have noticed young boys and girls making good use of modern technology to further their aspirations in fine arts. They read articles and watch programmes on the Internet. They use such resources as ‘You Tube’ to learn more about Indian fine arts. We have students living in UK and US learning music from us through audio and other methods,” he said.

Mr Ravi was also speaking on behalf of his brother Ramprasad Malladi to Indian Newlink from his home in Andhra Pradesh ahead of their visit to New Zealand.

Two concerts

The Malladi Brothers will perform from 530 pm at the Raye Freedman Arts Centre, Epsom Girls Grammar School in Epsom, Auckland on March 29 and in Wellington on March 30. They will be supported by Avaneeswaran Venu on the violin and Tumkur Bhadrachaar Ravishankar on Mridangam.

Their concerts in Auckland are being organised by Rasikas NZ and the Sangeetha Bharathi School of Music and in Wellington by the New Zealand Indian Fine Arts Society.

Mr Ravi Malladi said that they were eager to return to New Zealand, a country that extended a warm reception during their first visit in 2005.

According to The Hindu, there are several factors that work in favour of the Malladi Brothers.

“Their baritone but pleasant voice, clear diction and articulation, internalisation of the songs and perfection in delivery are qualities that have brought them popularity among commoners and connoisseurs.”

Further details will appear in our next issue.
