Kala Ramnath

Kala Ramnath (born 29 May 1967), is an Indian violinist. She belongs to the Mewati gharana.[1] She was awarded the Jasraj award in 1999.[2]

Early life

Kala Ramnath was born in Chennai, India, into a family of prodigious musical talent, which has given Indian music such violin legends as T.N. Krishnan and N. Rajam.

She began playing the violin at three under the tutelage of her grandfather, Vidwan Narayan Iyer, and her aunt Dr. N. Rajam. For fifteen years she studied with the Mewati vocal maestro, Sangeet Martand Pandit Jasraj. This has brought a rare vocal emotionalism to her art.

Her violin playing is characterized by an immaculate bowing and fingering technique, command over laya, richness and clarity in sur. She has revolutionized the technique of playing the violin by taking this instrument so close to vocal music that today her violin is called The Singing Violin.

Performing career

Kala Ramnath has performed worldwide, and in international festivals internationally.

She has also been experimenting with several types of genres of music - both within the traditions of Indian Classical music and also crossovers to other types of music.

She, along with the Bay area Saxophonist George Brooks, has a band called Global Conversation performing raga influenced jazz and jazz inflected raga.

Hollywood films
Kala also has been involved in the background score of the Hollywood film Blood Diamond working with composers like James Newton Howard and George Acogny.


She has won many awards.
