Music doesn’t have a language and reaches the heart better than words, lifts your spirits and makes one feel refreshed. At Kalabharathi Auditorium, the therapeutic voice of Managalampalli Balamuralikrishna echoed his zest for life.

Enjoying every moment of the interaction with students of Sri Prakash Vidyaniketan (SPV) here on Friday, he spoke about music and his love for life. “For strange reasons, I love the City of Destiny. Seeing so many young talented singers over here, I feel like living for long and continue teaching them music. I might have grown-up as an individual but I still feel I am an ardent student, learning and unlearning every moment in life,” he said. He appreciated the students of SPV for staging musical concert at the venue and a few were composed by music master D. Rajesh. The Carnatic maestro said that he wanted to live longer, propagate Indian music and spend time teaching for aspiring students. “I love to teach and even now I am teaching students online in the US. If I am successful today, it is solely because of my listeners’ love and acceptance as a singer,” added the ever smiling vocalist. Recollecting one of Dr. Balamuralikrishna’s interviews, A. Prasanna Kumar, director of Centre for Policy Studies said: “One of the beautiful quotes I have read of the Carnatic music maestro is -- I breathe music, think music, talk music and music is my energy and I am an instrument of music . I think everything about the artiste is musical and his voice has a captivating effect on everyone.”

Speaking at the event, director of Vipanchee Natyalaya S. Saraswathi said that she would like to train students on classical dance. “We (herself and Dr. Balamuralikrishna) would like to visit Vizag and extend our support in music and dance by conducting workshops,” she said.

CMD of Vijaya Nirman Co. Ltd S. Vijaya Kumar, and director of SPV Ch. Vasu Prakash participated.
