T.N. Seshagopalan

img

He hails from Madurai, a city rich with history, culture, the beautiful Meenakshi Amman Temple, and the birthplace of several world-renowned Carnatic musicians. He was inspired by his mother Smt. Tiruvenkatavalli an expert exponent of Namasankeertanam, the traditional singing of bhajans. It is no surprise then, that she showered all her knowledge on her young son who had the ability and interest to absorb everything like a sponge. His first concert of devotional music was at age seven. At age of sixteen he started formal training under guru Ramanathapuram C.S.Sankarasivan, prime disciple of musician, composer and Harikatha exponent, Harikeshanallur Muthiah Bhagavathar. Shri. Sankarasivan is also the elder brother and guru of the famous mridangist Shri C.S.Murugabhoopathy. A musician of many dimensions, Shri.Seshagopalan is a Grade A veena player, a Namasankeerthanam bhagavathar, an amateur flautist, a keyboard artist, an export harmonium player and an established actor as well. His far reaching repertoire continues to grow as he is a noted composer as well. He is equally at home singing ragas from the classical North Indian repertoire and has participated in several Jugalbandhis. The audience have learnt to expect the unexpected from him. It is no wonder then that this musical marvel has had endless titles and laurels showered upon him, the Sangeetha Kalanidhi in year 2006 being the icing on the cake. He holds a degree in science from the University of Madras and a degree in music from the Madurai University, where he also served as faculty.
