A magical performer, Dr. N. Rajam has an unerring touch on the violin. She studied initially with her father, Arupathi Natesa Iyer, before training with Omkarnath Thakur, a renowned vocalist. In her notes to her Music Today album she quotes her guru's advice about playing: "Approach the musical notes with utmost tenderness, love and humility, caress them, cajole them." It is advice she has taken to heart.
