Biography

Ramesh Narayan (born 3 November 1959) is a Hindustani vocalist from Kerala in south India, and is also an acclaimed film music director.[1] He has given concerts in several parts of his country and abroad. Ramesh Narayan began his initial training in Carnatic music but later mastered the classical Hindustani style under the renowned Pandit Jasraj of Mewati gharana.

Born on 3 November 1959, Shri. Ramesh Narayan hails from a family of Carnatic musicians settled at Kuthuparambu near Kannur, North Kerala. He had his early lessons in music from his parents, learning Carnatic music up to the age of 20. While he was a student at the Music College, Chittoor, Palakkad he was deeply drawn to Hindustani music and decided to dedicate himself to mastering it.

Moving to Pune, he learnt Sitar under the tutelage of Shri. Satchidananda Phadke, a renowned disciple of the Sitar Maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar. Becoming a competent Sitarist in no time, Ramesh Narayan found himself captivated by Hindustani vocal. He joined the Akhil Bharatiya Gandharva Mahavidyalaya and took his “Visharad” with high distinction. He felt entranced by the passionately evocative style of Parampoojya Guruji, Padma Vibhushan,Sangeeth Martand, Pandit Jasraj and resolved to hone his talent and technique under the Mewati Gharana Maestro. Pandit Jasraj trained him rigorously in the subtler aspects of music in the traditional Gurukula style. Ramesh Narayan has accompanied Guruji at several concerts.
