Carnatic Veena Concert by Rajhesh Vaidhya

Richmond Rasikas is proud to announce a Carnatic Veena Concert by Rajhesh Vaidhya, as part of their 2016 Spring Concert Series

Rajhesh Vaidhya was born into a rich musical environment. He inherited his indigenous talent from his father Sri K. M. Vaidyanathan, a stalwart both in Mridangam and Ghatam. Another beacon in Rajhesh Vaidhya's life was the Carnatic Veena Maestro Sri Chitti Babu. He is currently mentored by the legendary musician Sri L. Shenkar.

Apart from his blistering speed, his performance is distinguished by his use of electric and amplified strings. Besides his stage instrumental performances, he is also deeply involved with the recording for leading cine music directors and documentary filmmakers.

In 2001 Rajhesh was honoured with the title "Shree Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam Aasthana Vidwan" and in 2011 he was honoured with the prestigious Tamilnadu State Award "Kalaimamani".

Within the Veena and south Indian music tradition, he is undoubtedly one of the most intriguing and technically beguiling artist.
