There have been Carnatic Musicians on the congo, guitar, piano and what not. They have called the instruments different names and punched holes and added strings. But you still haven't seen it all until you watch Kadri Gopalnath.

This maestro coaxes the sexy saxophone into playing traditional, mostly devotional carnatic song with his wizardry. Of course he has done the usual adding and subtracting of holes, yet the saxophone is one of the most difficult instruments to play the gamakas without which Carnatic music is as characterless as a beach without the waves.

Kadri Gopalnath was born in 1950 to Shri Thaniappa and Smt Gangamma in Dakshina Kannada. He was trained in Nagaswaram from an early age by his father who was a Nagaswaram Vidwan himself. Yet, when he once spotted the saxophone being played in the Mysore Palace Band, so enthralled was the young boy that he decided to master it. 20 years later, he began to be known as Saxophone Chakravarty for his mastery. Gopalkrishna Iyer of Kalaniketana, Mangalore, taught him to play Carnatic music on it.

On the 2nd of February, this cool-cat will give Kenny G a knockout run for his money at the Keyes High School premises. Entry is free for all those interested.
