Wow! Thats really wonderfull
Dear Babu,

Wow! Thats really wonderfull! In fact even i am amazed

The complicated and intricate rhythmic and melodic patterns are so inspiring and only a mastermind can do such compositions. Thats the beauty of carnatic music. Thus whenever i listen to Ganesh Kumeresh, Mandolin Sri Niwasan, Selva ganesh, it completely drives me crazy.

Again, congratulations on this beautiful composition.

best wishes
Ranjan Sharma

Featured vocalists are Babu Parameswaran, whom Telikicherla calls "one of the most talented musicians in India,"
Indian Rhythm Ensemble (Folk)
When North Indian drums meet South Indian ones, then you get an explosion of rhythm, perfectly depicted here by Babu. A great introduction.
Babu Parameswaran was the extraordinary singer
Babu Parameswaran was the extraordinary singer, pyrotechnical yet never obtrusive, with M. S. Kannan on violin, Ravichandar Kulur on flute and T. Vishwanathan on the Indian classical mridangam, a two-headed drum.

Music For All
On an immigrant, no laurel rests more proudly, than one that recognizes one’s contributions to society. Babu Parameswaram, a South Indian musician from Maryland, is one such awardee. He was recently presented the Washington Immigrant Achievement Award 2004 in Washington, DC, last month. Conferred each year by the American Immigration Law Foundation, the Washington Immigrant Achievement Award honors outstanding immigrants whose contributions have greatly enriched the nation.

“This prestigious honor and award is an unexpected one for me. I feel very proud that this country has recognized my contribution to the field of music and dance,” notes Parameswaran modestly.

Parmeswaran is the director of Keerthana School of Indian Music and Fine Arts in Maryland. He trained under the late Chembai Vaidyanatha Bhagavathar and T.M. Thyagarajan. A versatile artist, Parameswaran sings in both the Karnatik and Hindustani styles of music. “From the beginning as a musician I never felt that there is a difference in music like North Indian, South Indian, Western or any other systems,” he says.

Thus, his repertoire of performances and compositions includes the Festival of India in Moscow, as well as compositions for dance productions like Meera, Cinderella, Tagore’s Shyama, Tulsi Ramayan, and Kalidasa’s Malavika. He has worked with sitar maestro Ravi Shankar in his musical theater Ghanashyam and was featured in the album Chants of India by Ravi Shankar and George Harrison. Also, for the past 12 years, Parmeswaran has been a staff artist at Bharata Kalanjali, the dance academy of the world-renowned Dhananjayans.

“Music for Indian classical dance is based on different Indian languages, which makes it difficult for the audience to understand the art form in detail; also, the main compositions are in South Indian languages,” explains Parameswaran. Hence, he has started introducing main compositions like varnam in Hindi and even Gujarati. “I am sure that it is going to create awareness in audience for classical dance programs,” he says.
