Lok Kala Manch
Ram Kaushik has learnt Carnatic music from several vidvans and vidushis including T.K. Govinda Rao and Neyveli
Santhanagopalan. He is also a self-taught artiste in part, analyzing and absorbing varied influences from the great maestros of
past and present generations. First and foremost, he considers himself a rasika of music, and is therefore deeply grateful to the
countless "maanasika gurus" who continue to shape his musical perceptions.
He has a mellifluous voice and a relaxed, but highly traditional and classical style, emphasizing gamaka-laden alapanas. He
has performed several concerts and lecture-demonstrations in the U.S. and India, including several long 4-5 hr concerts with
Shankar Venkataraman (The duo of Ram and Shankar has been referred to as the “Columbus Brothers”).
His other passions include history, literature, philosophy, and cricket. To pay the bills for his interests and keep his family fed
and clothed, Ram works as a software professional in Nashville, TN.
In addition to this eSnips folder, several of Ram's renditions can also be heard on the Internet at Shivkumar Kalyanaraman's
Carnatic music education site.
