Tks to the Almighty and my parents for the musical abilities poured into me as much I could grasp. My father Late Sri V. Venkat Rao rendered these Bhajans that inspired us in our childhood from where the seeds of music were sown.
The whole family including my mother and all brothers participated and these bhajans were recorded on ordinary audio tapes on ordinary tape-recorders, some on spool-tape-recorders those days (in 1960s) when I was about 12 or 13 years old. We are fortunate to acquire few tapes as a treasure, though partially damaged and in poor condition. In these Bhajans,
Father Sri V. Venkat Rao :- Vocal & Harmonium,
Mother Janaki Devi :- Chorus,
Elder Brother Chandra Sekhar:- Tabla & Dholki (Naal),
Myself :- Percussion (Ghungroo) and some times played a small keyboard CASIO-PS20 (only 1 foot long).
Pani, VS Murthy, Saibaba, VN Murthy:- All Chorus.
My father rendered some Hindi Bhajans also besides the Bhajans in Telugu language. Being South Indians our Hindi pronunciation may vary but the Bhajans were rendered with soulful submission, devotion and absolute dedication. Tks.
