Mridangist Shyam Venkatramani dies suddenly

Posted 2016-10-24

Dear friend and extremely gifted mridangam vidwan Shyam Venkatramani is demised after short illness.

I heard and met him as a small boy in Chembur in 1984. He visited Sweden together with his uncles late K. Shivakumar and K. Sridhar together with late tabla gurubhai Maruti Kurdekar. Here he is accompanying Shivakumar in a Stockholm concert, concluding with Tani Avarthanam.

Here is a response from his friend Gautam Dhar.
