Guitarist Prasanna, Icon Of Indian & Western Music

Posted by Shan I 8 April, 2010 archives  5


Prasanna is hailed by critics and fans around the world as one of the world’s most innovative guitarists and composers today. Prasanna truly exemplifies the notion of a global musician. He is the pioneer of traditional Indian classical carnatic music performance on the guitar and has stunned musicians, listeners and critics with his authentic performance of this ancient art on a standard electric Guitar replete with all the microtonal ornamentation.

Besides Carnatic Music on an Electric Guitar, He is also a Jazz Musician

‘How can you play Carnatic music on a guitar’? is a question that was on everyone’s mind when Prasanna daringly took to one of the world’s most ancient musical forms on one of the world’s most modern instruments – the electric guitar! 20 years on, the question is still asked by everyone but now in disbelief at how Prasanna brings out the subtlest of microtones on a standard electric guitar and goes even further by extending his signature style to Jazz, Blues, Rock, Classical music and everything that he feeds in as a contemporary musician of today.

Harmony of Music in Prasanna’s Profession

Prasanna picked up the Guitar when he was ten years old. In 1984 he formed the band Music Fusion. In 1985, he formed a band called Dispersions and joined The Eleventh Commandment, a rock band in South India. In 1989, he gave his first professional Carnatic music concert at the Music Academy.
