Shilparamam, as part of the Navaratri festivities, is organising an evening of Carnatic music on the clarinet by Kota Acchibabu, on 16th October. Pavan Singh on the violin, Prakash on the mridangam and Srikanth on the kanjeera will provide the support music for the recital.

Kota Acchibabu is an A-grade staff artiste of the All-India Radio. Born in 1955, he was initiated into music by his father and vocalist Kota Tatalu, and uncle Ramulu. His interest in the clarinet sprung after he became a disciple of late Shaikh Madina Saheb, himself a disciple of Nedunuri Krishna Murthy.

The clarinet is a Western musical instrument, and is very difficult to tune to Carnatic music. It requires years of rigorous practice and control over the blowing of air into it. Acchibabu is probably the only Indian to play the instrument in Carnatic style. He is a highly talented artiste who can play classical, light music, folk and also movie music.

He has played for many music directors, but the instrument has no takers in today's advanced digital technology. He has played along with and in presence of Dr. Mangalampally Balamurali Krishna, Dr. Yella Venkateshwara Rao, Nedunuri Krishna Murthy, Susheela, L R Eashwari, Janaki, Leela, Jikki, Jamuna and Dr. S P Balasubrahmanyam.

He has been conferred upon the Ghantasala Subhan Award by the Ghantasala Kalapeetham, Machilipatnam, in addition to receiving many felicitations by Dr. Akkineni Nageshwara Rao, Dr. C Narayana Reddy, Atal Behari Vajpayee and Prime Minister of Malaysia Mahathir Mohammed. Currently, he is a member of the A P Music Committee at the Telugu University, and a panel member of Yuvavani, AIR.
