Several times have taken contract of Music Concert in Mumbais and performed in 5-star hotels like,TAJ INTER-CONTINENTAL,THE LEELA, HOTEL AMBASSADOR Etc. and also given Classical Dance and Musical Concert in Mumbai's 3-star Hotels also.

Received invitation from Department of Culture to perform solo performance of Sapta Raga Tala Vadya Tarangam-Jugalbandhi at USSR . 
Since 1990, awarded 'A' Grade Artist from Cine Music Association, Mumbai. 

Since past 38 years, settled in Mumbai in the field of art. Also expert in Music composing, dance composing, Organ, Nattuvangam, Thayambaka, etc. etc. Also compossed a dozen of Dance Ballets and successfully presented several times in and out of Mumbai. 
Through consistent experiments and dedicated practice, the artist acumen of myself had substantially grown over the years and mastered in playing all the above instruments. Considering the laborious effort one has to make to learn o play even a single instrument, it would be utterly difficult to believe my masterly skill on Edakka, Mridangam, Maddalam, Ghatam, Pakhwaj, Thavil and Chenda. The suggestion inspired me and subsequent research and experiments culminated in the creation of a rare and unique musical Ensemble which I titled as SAPTA RAGA TALA VADYA THARANGAM! 
Sapta Raga Tala Vadya Tharangam is a pure unification of percussion, string and wind instruments that are used on different occasions and for various purposes. The seven instruments that will be single-handedly played by me, the lead percussions are: Edakka, Mridangam, Ghatam, Pakhwaj, Ganjira, Thavil, Chenda, Maddalam etc. As this new unusual musical creation will surely serve as a coed and unblemished treatise of Raga and Thala in all its chastity and grandeur, it need encouragement. Already telecasting this programme in the ASIANET TV CHANNEL. 
1. It is one of my own Musical Creation Jugalbandhi programme of ?Sapta Raga Tala Vadya Taramgam?! in which I will be single handedly playing 7 various Percussion instruments with other 5 accompaniments.
