2012 was a year we lost so many musicians and friends. On april 22, exactly one year back, K. Shivakumar left this world. He was a very close friend and a wonderful violinist, one of the very few A grade musicians, not only in Karnatic music but also in Hindustani (M.S.G who just passed as well is the only other one I know of) which he learned from age five from Ustad Zia Mohiuddin Dagar. He was born on may 18, 1945. He is missed a lot. Click below to listen Read more »
