The V Rangamani Chariar Arts Academy is felicitating Clarinet Vidwan Kota Atchibabu with a gold medal, on 21st March, at Kala Subbarao Kala Vedika, the mini hall of Sri Thyagaraya Gana Sabha in Chikkadpally. On this occasion, Atchibabu will play some Carnatic keertanas on the clarinet, and providing him with support are O Rajashekhar on the violin, Kapa Srinivas Rao on the mridangam and Ghantasala Satya Sai on the morsing.

Kota Acchibabu is an A-grade staff artiste of the All-India Radio. Born in 1955, he was initiated into music by his father 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, folk and also movie music.

He has played for many music directors, but the instrument has few 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, and has also received felicitations by Dr. Akkineni Nageshwara Rao, Dr. C Narayana Reddy, Atal Behari Vajpayee and the then 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.

The V Rangamani Chariar Arts Academy was established in April of 2007 by V L N Chariar, a 75-year-old music composer, singer and anchor, in memory of his late wife Vangipuram Rangamani. V L N Chariar is a well-known personality in cultural circles. He has been in this field since 1952, and has been conferred upon the title of Raaga Visleshana Visharada by Dr C Narayana Reddy in 2002 for completing 50 years of music composing. His uniqueness is organising musical nites based on classical music ragas. He trains singers to sing a particular song in different ragas.
