Kalaimamani Embar Kannan

img

He hails from a family of musicians. Living up to his father, Sangeetha Bhooshanam, Sri Embar Sadagopan's dream to see his son as a concert artist, Kannan took to the violin at the tender age of 6. He had his initial training in Carnatic music under Sri Subbanna Bhagavatar and Sri Vittal Ramamurthy and in western classical music under music director, Sri Diwakar. He then continued his formal training in the violin under Kum. Kanyakumari. Acknowledged as a violinist par excellence, Kannan is an A- Grade with the All India Radio. Universally acclaimed as a violinist with extraordinary bowing quality and remarkably sweet playing, his style is marked by clarity, soulfulness and energy and enthralls audiences, the world over with his music. Kannan has been rendering successful Fusion concerts since 1999 and introduced the Silent Violin into carnatic music in 2001. He is the recipient of numerous awards including the "Best Violinist Award" from the Madras Music Academy for eight consecutive years and subsequently in 2004 and 2006.
