A common friend introduced me to Mayavaram R. Vinoth , a carnatic musician who plays Mridangam. Was inspired by him and writing this post to request support! During the pandemic, we can support local small businesses, musicians and entrepreneurs in some way we can! Every bit counts!
Mridangam is a percussion instrument of ancient origin that is played in South India. It is the primary rhythmic accompaniment in a Carnatic music ensemble. A related instrument is the Kendang, played in Maritime Southeast Asia.
Mayavaram R. Vinoth – Mridangam Vidwan
+91 9962260784 (India number) – Contact over whatsapp
This musician has been accoladed as the Asthana Vidwan at the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetham by Sri Jayendra saraswathi swamigal!
He usually plays in concerts and has been impacted during the pandemic (no concerts these days). He is now conducting Mridangam classes online (over Zoom calls).
If you are looking to learn an instrument or have your child learn an instrument during the pandemic, completely virtual over Zoom calls, can I request you to support this musician in the process by signing up for Mridangam classes online.
To all the percussionists who play drums, vibraphone, marimba, snare, bass and a variety of percussion instruments, can you try another instrument from a different country of origin..?
Can I request you to support this musician by trying at least one or two classes to support him during the pandemic! You can attend the classes from anywhere in the world! We are all virtually connected now!
Please share this article with your friends and family and encourage them to sign up for online classes.
If you have any difficulty contacting the India number above, write to us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will connect you with them!
Look forward to posting about another entrepreneur or small business next week!
