Ramesh Narayan (born 3 November 1959) is a Hindustani vocalist from Kerala in south India, and is also an acclaimed film music director.[1] He has given concerts in several parts of his country and abroad. Ramesh Narayan began his initial training in Carnatic music but later mastered the classical Hindustani style under the renowned Pandit Jasraj of Mewati gharana.

Early life

Born on 3 November 1959, Shri. Ramesh Narayan hails from a family of Carnatic musicians settled at Kuthuparambu near Kannur, North Kerala. He had his early lessons in music from his parents, learning Carnatic music up to the age of 20. While he was a student at the Music College, Chittoor, Palakkad he was deeply drawn to Hindustani music and decided to dedicate himself to mastering it.


Career

Moving to Pune, he learnt Sitar under the tutelage of Shri. Satchidananda Phadke, a renowned disciple of the Sitar Maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar. Becoming a competent Sitarist in no time, Ramesh Narayan found himself captivated by Hindustani vocal. He joined the Akhil Bharatiya Gandharva Mahavidyalaya and took his “Visharad” with high distinction. He felt entranced by the passionately evocative style of Parampoojya Guruji, Padma Vibhushan,Sangeeth Martand, Pandit Jasraj and resolved to hone his talent and technique under the Mewati Gharana Maestro. Pandit Jasraj trained him rigorously in the subtler aspects of music in the traditional Gurukula style. Ramesh Narayan has accompanied Guruji at several concerts.
Blessed with a powerful and expressive voice, his renditions are noted for their depth of imagination. He is equally at ease with the weighty and expansive Khayal or the crisp and moving Bhajan.
One of his feats is a 30-hour concert he gave in dedication of his father and guru, the late Narayana Bhagavathar, and to Pandit Motiram, an exponent of the Mewati gharana.
He has composed, rendered and directed music for several feature films and television serials like "Gharshom", "Elayum Mullum", "Magrib", "Megh Malhar", "Makalkku", "Anyar", "Sheelabati" directed by well-known directors.

Personal life

Ramesh Narayan is accompanied at many of his concerts by Hema, his wife and disciple. She is an exponent in Carnatic music who is also fortunate to have trained under Parampoojya Guruji Pandit Jasrajji for some time. Ramesh Narayan is also blessed with two daughters, Madhuvanti and Madhushree who also follow their father's footsteps. Ramesh Narayan established the Pandit Mothiram Narayan Sangeeth Vidyalay in 1996, at Thiruvananthapuram to foster learning and appreciation of Hindustani Classical Music. Inaugurated by Parampoojya, Guruji, Pandit.Jasraj, the institution today imparts valuable training and insights to many discerning students. Branches exist at Kozhikode, Kochi, Thrissur in Kerala and at Coimbatore in Tamil Nadu. The school also holds the privilege of being the only school in India associated with Mewati Gharana.
