G.N.Balasubramaniam 

(Jan. 6th, 1910 - May 1st,1965)

 

GNB, as he was popularly known, came blazing into the Carnatic scene, a young and handsome graduate in English Honors, at a time when the arena was already studded with bright stars.

Yes, he WAS the singing superstar of carnatic music in his time. He swayed the minds of the pundits and layman alike through the rich timbre of his voice and his immense repertoire.

His music was refreshingly different, full of unique ideas and brilliant brigas, with a touch of modernity. He mesmerised the old and young alike with his very fluid voice, effortlessness of expression and explorative approach to raga alapanas. His impact on Carnatic music cannot be over-emphasised.

He was peerless in his style of raga elaboration and middle tempo rendering coupled with his inimitable style. He carried his handsome personality laden with music virtuoso with ease and grace!
