Indian Guru Sishya

January 23, 2019, 4:18 AM ·


Violin Padma was extremely fortunate to be under the guidance of the violin Maestro Shri. Lalgudi .G.Jayaraman .

Padma quotes : “ My Guru was not just a musician , he was a magician. He created magic with sound. He was an innovator. His child- like enthusiasm was infectious. He gave his 100% no actually 200% to every thing he undertook be it teaching, composing , practicing. He was a veritable encyclopedia of music. “

My guru , Lalgudi Jayaraman drew his musical lineage to the poet saint Tyagaraja. His father Lalgudi Gopala Iyer belonged to that Shishya Parampara. Jayaraman was the fifth in that generation of musicians. It was inevitable that he mastered all the compositions of Tyagraja and in the process, even the difficult literary Telugu language.

His mesmerizing techniques and complete control over the instrument has made him one of the maestros in his chosen field. Melodious, rhythmic and stylish are some of the words used to define the music of Lalgudi Jayaraman. He holds the distinction of being the first musician to be awarded with the Chowdaiah Memorial National-Level Award. For his outstanding work in his field, Lalgudi Jayaraman has been bestowed upon with Padma Bhushan and Padma Shri, India's third and fourth highest civilian awards.

He invented a new technique of playing the violin, which came to be known as 'Lalgudi Bani'. This innovative style was stylized in a manner that it best suited the needs of Indian classical music. Though it was original and unique, it, however, wasn't too apart from the traditional style and thus was liked and appreciated by one and all. His compositions of several 'kritis', 'tillanas' and 'varnams' boast of a unique blend of raga, bhava, rhythm and lyrical beauty.
