Annamanada Parameswara Marar & Party ‎- Pancha Vadyam - ECLP 2431 - (Condition 80-85%) - HMV Black Label - LP Record

In the history of Panchavadyam, the traditional percussion ensembles in temples, Annamanada trio of Achutha Marar, Peethambara Marar and Parameswara Marar enjoyed a pre-eminent position in the latter half of the 20th century. The baani the three titans established and fostered on the thimila by means of their talent and perseverance became almost extinct with the passing of Parameswara Marar in the 1980s.

His nephew and disciple, Kalamandalam Parameswaran, continued to be the last link to a glorious heritage. With the passing away of Parameswaran, widely known in artistic circles as Annamanada Parameswara Marar (Junior), the legacy of Annamanada village in Panchavadyam has become part of Kerala’s cultural history.Although Parameswaran grew up in the culturally vibrant village of Annamanada in Thrissur district, he did not formally pursue any art form under a guru. But in 1965, he joined Kerala Kalamandalam as the first student of the thimila when the institution added Panchavadyam to its curriculum. He received intense tutelage under the titan Annamanada Parameswara Marar for four years.The guru was a disciplinarian who soon realised that his nephew had the potential to blossom into an acclaimed percussionist. On completion of training, young Parameswaran became part of the freelance Panchavadyam troupes and gained star status as a prodigious percussionist within a short period. Simultaneously, he spent a lot of time listening to and learning from legendary percussionists such as Pallavoor Appu Marar, Maniyan Marar and Kunhikuttan Marar.

The southern school of Panchavadyam to which Parameswaran originally belonged to follows a solid structure, which does not offer sufficient room for melody, be it on the thimila, maddalam or edakka.Precisely for the same reason, he approached the Pallavoor trios for advanced lessons on the thimila. His interactions with them had the desired effect. The ennams he performed on the thimila from then onwards became a bewitching synthesis of solidity and mellifluousness. The surface of the thimila can accommodate only two syllables: ‘tha’ and ‘thom’. Yet celebrated percussionists have surmounted this constraint by exploring the many different tonal possibilities. Parameswaran is undoubtedly one among them.
