Parthosarothy is one of the finest musicians in India embodying the true heritage of Hindustani raagadri music. He is among the dearest students of Pandit Ravi Shankar. BBC mentions him as one of the most gifted musicians playing today. I was lucky to play host to him during June-09.http://www.youtube.com/p/759E2E88E7AC8491&hl=
