Tiruvarur Vaidyanathan  Mridangam Artist Profile

Born in a family of percussionists, Tiruvarur Vaidyanathan was initiated into the divine art of mridangam at the age of 6. He had his early training under his grandfather Shri Thiruvarur Kunju Iyer and his uncle Shri Thiruvarur Nagarajan. His natural sense of rhythm and affinity with the instrument enabled him to perform in concerts even as he was learning.

His artistry grew under the tutelage of Mridangam maestro Shri Karaikudi Mani. Under Shri Mani's guidance, Vaidyanathan blossomed into a full-fledged mridangist with a capacity to accompany all the leading musicians.

He has accompanied music doyens viz. Dr. Balamuralikrishna, Smt M.L. Vasanthakumari, Dr N. Ramani, Sri Maharajapuram Santhanam, Sri K.J.Yesudas, Sri K.V. Narayanawamy, Smt D.K. Pattamal, Sri T.V. Sankaranarayanan, Sri M.S. Gopalakrishnan, Sri T.N.Krishnan, Sri U.Srinivas, Smt Aruna Sairam, Smt Sudha Raghunathan, Smt Bombay Jayasree, Smt Nityasree Mahadevan, Sri Ravikiran, Sri Sanjay Subramanian, Sri Unni Krishnan, Sri T.M.Krishna, etc.

His playing style is characterized by melodic richness, technical dexterity, balanced use of the left and right sides, clarity at higher tempos and a keen sense of anticipation which all together provides a complementary percussion support that enhances the performance of the main artist and takes the concert to great heights.

He has so far accompanied prominent artists for more than 100 cassettes and CD recordings including live concerts and jugalbandhies. In 2004, he teamed up with Dr.Balamuralikrishna and Sri Bhimsen Joshi for a memorable Jugalbandi at Banglore.

Though Vaidyanathan is based in Chennai, India he keeps trotting around the globe as dictated by his professional commitments for performance and teaching.
