Pradhosh School of Percussion celebrates 5th Annual day 

The rhythmic sounds of Carnatic music percussion beats resonated at the fifth Annual day programme of Pradhosh School of Percussion held recently at Arkay Centre, Mylapore.

Trained by gurus D V Venkata Subramaniam and N. Rajaraman, over 40 students comprising school-going children as young as five and office-goers, performed confidently on the mridangam, konnakol, ghatam and kanjira.  Young children dressed in traditional attire and sat through the three-hour programme and seemed to enjoy the music.

This school started with just a handful of students; it now has 70 students learning from online and offline mediums.

Drawing inspiration from their guru and ghatam exponent vidwan T H Vikku Vinayakram, Rajaraman and Venkata Subramaniam say that they have followed the same syllabus and pedagogy of their guru.

Vikku Vinayakram, Triplicane Sekhar, N. Ramakrishnan, and U P Raju who were the key guests praised the duo. The surprise guest of honour was kanjeera exponent Selva Ganesh, who received a standing ovation for being awarded the prestigious Grammy award.
