Mohanan Chandrasekaran is a Carnatic classical violinist from Chennai, Tamil Nadu, India. He was born in Calcutta, in 1939 December 11 as the younger of the two sons of T.N. Mohan and Charubala Mohan, a violinist herself.[1] He was awarded the Madras Music Academy's Sangeetha Kalanidhi in 2005.[2] Chandrasekharan began playing the violin at the age of 11, after which he went on to accompany many musicians in the field of Carnatic music. Having lost his eyesight at the age of two, he overcame his difficulty by music. He is also considered[by whom?] an expert in the laya (tempo) aspects, recognizing and adapting to intricate rhythmic patterns.[citation needed] Sri Chandrasekharan also presents vocal concerts, and sometimes sings along during his solo violin recitals. He has composed various musical forms in different languages, and has travelled the world performing.[citation needed] He often performs violin duet concerts with his daughter Smt. G. Bharathi. He has accompanied several masters of Carnatic music including Maharajapuram Santhanam, G. N. Balasubramaniam, Madurai Mani Iyer, Maharajapuram Viswanatha Iyer, flute N. Ramani, K. V.
