A few Promotions in Issai Mazhalai

The three photos you see here are the first set of Musicians Promoted from Issai Mazhalai earlier. We found that they had already outgrown in their knowledge & popularity level and we decided that they will not perform under the IM banner. It was a very good decision and all three namely Vidya Kalyanaraman, Keyboard Sathya & Bharat Sundar have grown into fine young musicians today. Vidya & Bharat have entered Music Academy this year. Sathya had an extensive tour of USA with top Pakka Vadhyams like Sri.Embar Kannan & Sri.Poongulam Subramaniam. Bharat has been awarded the Yuva Kala Bharathi. To top it all Vidya is getting married into a family of Carnatic Musicians.

January 2010 : Now the time has come to promote a few more musicians. I think the time is ripe for them to step out of Issai Mazhalai and & begin their own innings. They are already quite popular and are capable of making history.
K.Dharini - Vocal, Parur M.S.Ananthakrishnan - Violin, Rajeev - Violin, Prashanth - Mridangam & Ghatam, Punith Davay - Mridangam , Krithivasan -Mridangam & Chandrasekara Sarma -Ghatam.

Issai Mazhalai will continue to monitor their growth and celebrate their Laurels periodically. We wish them GOD SPEED.
