I, Erode Nagaraj, from the childhood had a great interest to learn rhythm and was initiated into the art of Mrudangam at the age of 7 years. I learnt the art of mrudangam initially from Palladam Sri. V. Ramachandran for 8 years. In order to have further training in all the branches of this art, I became the disciple of Padmabushan Umayalpuram Sri K. Sivaraman since 1990. I took intensive and advance training from my revered Guru, Sangeetha Kalanidhi Umayalpuram Sri. K. Sivaraman, which included accompaniment to vocal music and instrumental music as well and to learn playing for more number of thalas. Though I had participated in several state level school competitions with distinction, my first debut at Chennai was held on Friday, the 16th April 1993. The Department of Culture, Ministry of Human Resources & Development, Govt. of India under the scheme, ‚ÄúScholarship to Young Artistes in different Cultural Field‚ÄĚ awarded me scholarship, during the year 1994 ‚Äď 1996 (F2-53/94/CH2). I have been performing both in All India Radio since 02.06 1994 and Doordharsan Kendra, Chennai since 17.09.1994.I have also played laya vinyasam (Mrudangam Solo) in a rare thala - Misra Thriputa ‚Äď Two Kalai- Samam in All India Radio, Chennai and laya vinyasam in Adhi Thala in Doordharsan, Chennai. I am an ‚ÄėA‚Äô grade artiste. I have been playing in almost all esteemed sabas like The Music Academy, Sri Krishna Gana Saba and other well known organisations in India and abroad and also given lecture-demonstrations successfully. My performance on mrudangam was very much appreciated by vidwans and rasikas and I have won many best player awards and have also been credited with very good review in press like The Hindu, Indian Express and other celebrated magazines.
I have been thinking of making substantial contribution to the field of my profession and I owe fullest responsibility not only to maintain the cultural heritage of this art but also to take the art of mrudangam to Global Level, to the mass and even to the layman, the niceties of this art without compromising the sasthras and grammar. I have a very good experience in teaching fingering techniques and laya intricacies of mrudangam for the past 6 years not only to the students of India but also to foreigners. I am keen to interact with all forms of music. I rendered konnakol (verbal rendition of jathis and phrases that are played in mrudangam) to the playing of my Guru Padmabushan Umayalpuram Sri K. Sivaraman with Mr. Steve Coleman (Sax) and Vijay Iyer (Key board) from USA, in the Madras Cricket Club. My mrudangam solo in a rare thala (sankeerna chapu) has been recorded for Samudra, an organization promoting Indian music in London. G.K.Foundation Trust created with noble ideals inter alia honouring selected best musicians and dancers, honoured me in their anniversary function held on 31st July 2001, along with Sangeetha Kalanidhi Palghat Sri K.V. Narayanaswamy. I had the privilege of performing in the platinum jubilee of the Music Academy in the august presence of the Honourable President of India Dr.A.P.J.Abdul Kalam, Governor of Tamil Nadu Sri Ram Mohan Rao, Sangeetha Kalanidhi Padma Vibhushan Sri Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer and Sitar Maestro Padma Vibhushan Sri RaviShankar.

I have also performed in Sun-TV, Raj-TV ( DVD of the concert has been released by Raj Video Vision) and Raj Digital Plus and in WIN-TV in their special programmes.

ďSoul stirring scintillating Carnatic Keyboard performance that reverberates in us even much after the concert is overĒ is how the Southern Californiaís audience review and describe about Amruthavarshini Muralikrishnanís concert on May 14th 2005 at Hoover Auditorium. She was accompanied by Shri Vittal Ramamurthy on the violin and Shri Neyveli Narayanan on the Mrudangam. The hall was overflowing double its capacity. More than 700 Music rasikas witnessed this young musical genius concert.
Amruthavarshini Muralikrishnan is just 16 years old, young star making a rave in the USA, India and around the world by popularizing the Carnatic music on the Keyboard and is already taking the world of Carnatic music by storm. Innocence on the face, mastery in presentation and classicism in performance made music lovers to bind in Amruthavarshiniís spell of music. Music is part of her lineage. Varshiniís formal training in music started at the tender age of 2 and needless to say that her first teachers were her father, and mother, Veena and Keyboard virtuoso performer and Guru Shri N. Muralikrishnan (www.nmuralikrishnan.com) and renowned Carnatic performer and teacher Smt. Rose Muralikrishnan (www.rosemuralikrishnan.com) who is a disciple of M. L Vasanthakumari.
Varshini is a first ever child prodigy to perform the Carnatic Music on the Electronic keyboard who started playing the instrument at the age of two under the tutelage of her Father and Guru Shri N. Muralikrishnan. After Several years of research playing Carnatic Music on the Keyboard was a concept conceived and stylized by N. Muralikrishnan under the model "Changing Trends without Changing traditional ValuesĒ 23 years ago, which became a hot pick among the youngsters in the field of Carnatic music lately in India and around the world. Not only are her father and mother a well known gurus, but are musicologists and renowned Carnatic practitioners who performed around the globe for more than two decades.
Varshini started the concert with the chouka kala Ata tala Bhairavi Varnam in thrikalam within the same tala cycle. Playing the Keyboard on right hand, doing the tala on her left with a great smile and cheer proved her mastery and confidence on the instrument. Her rendition of Vathapi in Hamsadwani in drutha kala with Kalpana swara was an effective booster. A difficult Anupama gunambudhim in Atana was an excellent communicative piece between the main artist and the accompanists Vittal Ramamurthy and Neyveli Narayanan. After Sobillu saptaswara, brova bharama and few other krithis a grand main Chakkani Raja Marga in raga Karaharapriya was great gate opener to prove her brilliance and deep knowledge in music. Ragam Tanam Pallavi in Raga Mohanam was a breath taking piece of the evening. The concert ended with traditional Tamil, Kannada Telugu Thukkadas with a grand Tillana in Behag by Lalgudi Jayaraman and Mangalam. Chemistry between Amruthavarshini and the accompaniments Shri Vittal Ramamuthy on the violin and Shri Neyveli Narayanan on mirdangam kept the entire concert lively and thrill filled.
Several well known musician and performers such as Delhi Sunderrajan, B.U. Ganesh, Raji Gopalakrishnan, and Southern California Carnatic music organizers and teacher were present in the audience and praised Varshiniís performance level with todayís master musicians. Delhi Sundarrajan delivered a speech and mentioned that Varshiniís presentation of music is beyond the mastery level. Her stage presence, eye contact and communication with accompanists, performing the tala in left and playing the keyboard in the right hand, Raga sancharas, Jaru prayogas, selection of ragas and compositions were well appreciated by him. She was awarded with the title of Sangeetha Kala Rathna by Antelope Valley Temple officials.
At the end speech Amruthavarshini said that there are no short cuts for success in any field. A goal with focus, dedication, hard work, long hours of practice, parental support, appreciating audience and gods grace are the key to make things possible.
Amruthavarshini has a dream of popularizing the keyboard in the Carnatic music scene widely as a solo and accompanying instrument. As there was Baluswami Dikshitar for violin, U. Srinivas for Mandolin, Kadiri Gopinath for Saxophone, A.K.J. Natarajan for Clarinet, she wants Amruthavarshini to be a land mark for Keyboard in Carnatic History.
Amruthavarshini has played in many Music Albums, music and dance productions and performed at several prestigious Halls such as Carpenter's performing Arts center of Long Beach, Cerritos Performing Arts Center, Bovard Auditorium, Getty Museum Center of Los Angeles, Cleveland Aradhana, and so forth. She also participated in several World music Festivals around the country and was a special invitee at the A.R. Rahmanís LA 2000 show at Shrine Auditorium to sing the Vande Matharam and National Anthem of India. She often accompanies her father and motherís Carnatic concerts in and around the country. She participated in several fund raising events for many nonprofit organizations such as UdhavumKarangal, ASHA-LA, SPICMACAY, Tamil Rehabilitation Organization (TRO) for Tsunami Disaster Relief, and Corazon de Vida Foundation for orphans in Baja, to support good cause.
Varshini is well versed in Western and Carnatic singing and bagged over 100
awards, prizes, and certificates for her merit. She plays the Sarasvathi
veena, as well as the western Piano, and has composed music for several
musical events. She makes difference in sick and older Citizens lives by
