V Seetha Ramaiah (Keyboard Artiste):-I could not learn Classical Music through Guru-Shishya-Parampara due to my 18 years of military service (served in Air Force)from 1971 to 1989, my total occupation as Inspector/Superintendent of Customs, Central Excise & Service Tax from 1992 to 2012 thereafter further occupation as an Advocate covering these areas on requisition from respectable Companies. But I have been fortunate that as an youngster under 18, not only for the musical merits poured into me by the Almighty through my parents but also for the exposure to listening to the lead Instrumentalists of the Golden Era of the Telugu Filmdom who were natives of my native place Kovvur, West Godavari District, who used to present vocal and instrumental music at the private gatherings of my father who was a renowned multi-faceted artiste by himself and the Bhajans rendered by him during my childhood, were collected and uploaded in Thereafter, I have been improving my levels by critical and meticulous listening to the master-works of the legends of Hindustani Classical Music (Vocal & Instrumental). Though I had no Master it does not mean that I were not a disciple. Ustad Bismilla Khan Sahab is my inspiration. Every sound I hear is my GURU. I am Ekalavya Shishya to all legends whose works fascinated me. Please don't count me as a classical maestro. I am only an amateur and out of my passion for classical music, I try to present Hindustani Classical Music at my best through self-learning. Pandit Subrata De, the Sitar Maestro, stepped down to my level and took me upwards by holding my hand and it is nothing but for they loved me for my soulful approach to the music with feel of sincerity, seriousness, sanctity for good music.Thankful to Visakha Music & Dance Academy, Visakhapatnam, for their great support making this Concert possible. Yours sincerely, V. Seetha Ramaiah , Cell: +91 99 08 22 84 26 Category Music License Standard YouTube License
