Music Lovers Group is organising a Carnatic (south Indian classical music) vocal concert in memory of its founder president Ganesh Srinivasan.
The young duo Srikrishna Mohan and Ramkumar Mohan, popularly known as the Trichur Brothers, will perform on November 15 at Concorde Hotel’s Ras Laffan Hall from 6pm onwards.
The Trichur Brothers are sons of senior mridanga vidwan Trichur R Mohan and Lalitha Mohan and belong to the ‘Sitaram Group,’ a traditional business family based in Trichur, Kerala.
Srikrishna and Ramkumar initially trained under Balamani Eswar. Later, for nearly a decade, they were fostered by the late Prof  Neyyattinkara Mohanachandran in the nuances of advanced Carnatic music. Currently they are guided by Padma Bhushan P S Narayanaswami.
The brothers have also acquired lessons from various vidwans including the late T M Thyagarajan and Govindan Namboodiri. For over a decade now, the duo have been regularly performing across India and toured the US, Canada, Middle East and Indonesia.
They have been bestowed with the title `Sangita Naadamani’ by the Kanchi Kamakoti Mutt in February 2009. Other prestigious awards include the Musiri Subramaniam award from Krishna Gana Sabha for Ragam and Neraval, Best Vocalists from Indian Fine Arts, Yuva Kala Bharathi from Bharath Kalachar, The Guru Dakshina Award from Thalam Cultural Trust and Hari Sri Vidya Nidhi School, Best Concert award by The Music Academy (Chennai) for the 2012-13 music festival.
The brothers’ fusion band ‘Anubhoothi’, featuring some of the finest artistes in Indian and Western music, is creating waves in the contemporary music circles.
The event is being held in association with Mediaplus. More information could be had from 55210324/55841765.
