KNP Nambisan (“Kalashree” Guru Lalitha Kalalayam Nambisan) Multi-talented Percussion Artist  Profile

I, K.N.P. Nambisan alias Lalitha Kalalayam Nambisan – BORN AND BOUGHT UP FROM A TRADITIONAL ART FAMILY - son of Late Famous Writer Poet, Siromani Nelluvai K.N. Nambisan who is a elder brother of famous Kathakali Legend Singer – Kalamandalam Neelakantan Nambisan, from a well known artist family (Tharavad), is an = Master of Rhythm = Thala Vadya Shilpi = RASHTRA GAURAV PURASKAR Award Winner = THE BEST CITIZEN OF INDIA AWARD 2009 - A MULTI-TALENTED PERCUSSIONIST - An Unusual Instrumental Musical Player in various type of percussions like Mridangam, Edakka, Ghatam, Ganjira, Chenda, Maddalam, Pakhwaj, Thavil, Tabla, Dolak etc. Since past 38 years, settled in Mumbai in the field of art. Also expert in Music Compossing, Dance Compossing, Organ, Nattuvangam, Thayambaka, etc. etc. Also compossed & Directed a dozen of Dance Ballets and successfully presented several times in and out of Mumbai.

Through consistent experiments and dedicated practice, the artist acumen of myself had substantially grown over the years and mastered in playing all the above instruments. Considering the laborious effort one has to make to learn o play even a single instrument, it would be utterly difficult to believe my masterly skill on Edakka, Mridangam, Maddalam, Ghatam, Pakhwaj, Thavil and Chenda. The suggestion inspired me and subsequent research and experiments culminated in the creation of a rare and unique musical Ensemble which I titled as SAPTA RAGA TALA VADYA THARANGAM!

Sapta Raga Tala Vadya Tharangam is a pure unification of percussion, string and wind instruments that are used on different occasions and for various purposes. The seven instruments that will be single-handedly played by me, the lead percussions are: Edakka, Mridangam, Ghatam, Pakhwaj, Ganjira, Thavil, Chenda, Maddalam etc. As this new unusual musical creation will surely serve as a coed and unblemished treatise of Raga and Thala in all its chastity and grandeur, it need encouragement. Already telecasting this programme in the ASIANET TV CHANNEL. & AMRUTA TV CHANNEL.

1. It is one of my own Musical Creation Jugalbandhi programme of “Sapta Raga Tala Vadya Taramgam”! in which I will be single handedly playing 7 various Percussion instruments with other 5 accompaniments.

2. My 2nd Dance & Musical production is SAUPARNIKAMRUTAM based on Goddess Saraswati in which 3 Dance styles, more than 12 percussion instruments are used. Ending with Jugalbandhi with Other Instruments and 3 Dance styles will finish like a Pyramid - Rhythm And Dance Climax.

3. My 3rd Musical production is KSHETRA KALA VADYA MANJARI based on Kerala Traditional Temple instruments like Chenda,Maddalam,Edakka,Thimala,Kombu,

Kuzhal,Shankhu,Talam, Chengala etc. The Composition is Keli Mukham, Triputa from Panchavadyam & Irukita from Thayambaka.
