Neyyattinkara Vasudevan

Music of the accomplished musician from Kerala in connection with his death anniversary on May 13.

Neyyattinkara Vasudevan was one of the most popular musicians from Kerala. His rendition and popularisation of Swathi Thirunal kritis contributed a lot to the growth of Carnatic music in Kerala. A disciple of Semmangudi Sreenivasa Iyer and Ramnad Krishnan, Neyyattinkara Vasudevan evolved a style firmly rooted in the tradition, but he was always open to innovations. The ease of his musical expression was reminiscent of his guru, Ramnad Krishnan. A revered teacher, Neyyattinkara Vasudevan had students staying with him, like in a gurukulam. Neyyattinkara Vasudevan passed away on 13 May 2008, at the age of 68.
