Pazhani School of Percussion

This website is a dedication to the generation of Percussion Vidwans that this school has produced. The style and classicism that the Vidwans of this school produced and demonstrated in concerts, will stay im-mortal in the realms of Carnatic Music. Evolved by the legendary Mridangam Vidwan, Shri. Pazhani Subramania Pillai, the baton was passed over to his shishyas - Shri.Trichy Sankaran and Shri.M.N.Kandaswamy (to name a few).

This website is an earnest attempt to compile the clippings from different concerts that these masters have played / accompanied over the years.
