Dr Raj had good voice, says Pandit Taranath

Speaking on the occasion, Pandit Taranath said noted Kannada cine actor, late Dr Raj Kumar who was trained by noted theatre personality, Gubbi Veeranna, had a wonderful voice.

Besides, Dr Raj was a great actor too. In film field, some of the leading personalities like Dr Raj of Kannada, Shivajiganeshan of Tamil, N T Ramarao of Telugu and Dileepkumar of Hindi, had unique voice. Likewise, the voice of Lawrence in English was too good. Everyone should see the English movie ‘Julius Ceaser’ written by William Shakespeare.

He said the Indian classical music is unique as it is possible to change from one raga to another raga easily. But, this was not so as far as the Western music is concerned. AIISH director, Dr Vijaylakshmi Basavaraju who presided, said that delegates participating in this two-day workshop have to study the concept of professional voice and learn the art of seeing from different perspective.

There will be special lectures by Dr T V Ananthapadmanabha of Bangalore, Dr B Prakash of Chennai, Namitha Joshi of Poona, Dr G Rajeshwari of Mysore, Dr Rajsudhakar, K Yashoda, Dr M Pushpavathi and Gopi Kishore Pebbili. More than 150 delegates from all over the country are participating in this workshop.
