Namagiripettai Krishnan - Nadhaswaram - S 33ESX 6047 - Columbia Black Label - LP Record
Namagiripettai K Krishnan is a Carnatic
musician who plays the Nadaswaram. He was born in Sendamangalam village and
lived in Namagiripettai, Namakkal district, Tamil Nadu, India. He gave many
performances across the country. In 1981, Krishnan was awarded the Padma Shri
by the Indian government for his contributions to Carnatic music. He was
also the Asthana Sangeetha Vidwan for the Tirumala Venkateswara Temple.
Namagiripettai Krishnan was one of the most
popular Nagaswara vidwans in recent times. A veteran with over 5 decades of
experience, his demise on April 30, 2001, at a private hospital following a
cardiac arrest, is indeed an irreparable loss for Carnatic music. It is with
deep sorrow that Carnatica brings you this obituary.
