rasika welcomes you to a magical evening with a scintillating Carnatic Vocal Concert by child prodigy Abhishek Raghuram.

Abhishek Raghuram, a child prodigy who hails from a family that brims with legendary musicians, has flowered into a high caliber artist with rare talent. Through the unique guidance of his grandfather, the mridangam legend, Sri Palghat Raghu and as a disciple of Vidwan Sri.P.S.Narayanaswamy, Abhishek has gained a deep insight into the intricacies of music.

He has been a performing vocal artist since 1994, when he gave his 1st performance at the age of 9 under the auspices of the Percussive Arts Centre, in Bangalore. Since then he has performed all over India for various organizations in the country, and gave his first international concert tour in America in 1999 with his grandfather, Palghat Raghu. A second successful concert tour of America and Canada took place in 2008.

Abhishek has created a new genre in the field of vocal music, combining virtuosity, aesthetics and intellect in equal proportion. His music has been called ‘food for the intellect, mind, heart and soul.’ The specialty and uniqueness of his style emerges from his efforts taken to not mime any pre-existing gharanas. Since he largely comes from a greatly musical family, he could very well be on his way to creating a new Gharana, something that could have a big impact in the Indian music world.
