 Dr. T K Murthy

One of the senior-most mridangists of today, T K Murthy showed signs of greatness even as a boy of eight, when Maharaja Chitra Tirunal visited his school. The stunned ruler presented the young mridangist with a gold medal. Favourable stars guided him to Tanjavur Vaidyanatha Iyer, the legendary mridangist, who was delighted to take him as his disciple. Murthy was not just a disciple to Vaidyanatha Iyer, who treated him like a son. He is a highly respected and popular mridangist owing to his faultless technique and uncanny sense of anticipation.
