Prince Rama Varma

Prince Rama Varma, a scion of the Travancore Royal Family, is a direct descendent of Maharaja Swathi Thirunal, the famous composer-king, and Raja Ravi Varma, the greatest artist-painter of his time. imgThe Prince started receiving music lessons from Prof. Vechoor Harihara Subhramania Iyer. Shortly after, he started learning Veena under Trivandrum R Venkataraman and continued under the tutelage of Sangeetha Kalanidhi Prof. K S Narayanaswamy. He is now a disciple of Sangeetha Kalanidhi Dr.M Balamuralikrishna. Rama Varma has performed vocal and Veena concerts all over India and in Europe, Middle East and the USA. For many years he had associated with the Rotterdam Conservatory of Music offering vocal classes in Indian Classical Music and also voice training sessions. He frequently gives lecture demonstrations in South Indian Classical Music particularly on Dr. Balamuralikrishna's compositions. His music is noted for its strict adherence to tradition coupled with his own charming brand of creativity During the past decade he has proved himself to be an organizer of merit by organizing a weeklong festival of South Indian and North Indian Classical Music which is open to the public, at the palace of his ancestor Maharaja Swathi Thirunal in Trivandrum from the 6th till the 12th of January every year. The festival continues to attract a large number of listeners from various parts of the world year after year.
