It was with shock and great sadness that I learnt of the recent untimely demise of Mandolin U Shrinivas, whose music I have loved and admired all my life. From first hearing him in concert in the early nineties (when we were both children) to listening to his CDs when I travelled to work, his creativity would always transport me to another world filled with emotion -yearning, peace, joy, exhilaration, and even humour. He showed how Carnatic music could be enhanced by weaving into it genres of other music styles, without ever diminishing the power of the pure classical forms. And with his innovation on an instrument never before used in Carnatic music, he inspired experimentation and creativity in all of us. Words simply cannot describe the intense beauty of his music. I thank him for all the joy he has given us and pray that his soul finds peace with God.

Dear aunty, I wanted to offer my condolences over Mandolin Srinivas’s death. I know howmuch you adore him. All I could say is thank you so much for exposing us to his beautiful music and bringing him over for workshops. His teaching has enriched our lives.also the memory of you calling him up to wish me good luck for my arangetrams will stay alive in my heart forever. I hope you are o.k I was so fortunate to be exposed to Padma Shri Mandolin U Srinivas by Aunty when I was a Carnatic vocal student at the Bharathiya Vidya Bhavan in 2005. I saw him perform with his brother Rajesh and Murugabhoopati sir on the mridangam. I was completely blown away by the sweet yet ecletic melodies he rendered on his Mandolin. His performance of Namami Vigna Vinayaka in Hamsathwani with the subtle accompaniment of the mridanga sent me to a spiritual plain of eternal bliss. As a devotee of Sathya Sai Baba I adored his playing of the Sai Bhajans and I was ecstatic when I saw him perform at the Sai Kulwant Hall in 2010. I was also lucky enough to attend workshops that Srinivas conducted and again I found it astounding how he took popular tunes like Raghuvamsasudha and how he would make it completely unique through his own innovations and improvisation. I’ve really been blessed to have seen him and be taught by him during his lifetime. Thank you so much Aunty for introducing us to this legend.

Aunty I don’t even know what to say to you. Since yesterday I couldn’t think about anything apart from Srinivas Sir. I don’t think words can explain what we have lost today. I still can’t take it. I was absolutely devastated to hear. I didn’t even know how to even txt you. I texted uncle instead, If it is completely disturbing me I don’t even know how you must be taking it. I am so lucky to have met him and sang in front of him. I still can remember singing Sai

Bhajan to him at your house and him really enjoying it. It is constantly in my mind. me and Karthika both completely upset. Life is too short. We are really going to miss him. I don’t know what else to say. I always listen to his music because his playing completely takes me out of this world. I just wanted to tell you how I feel because no one else will understand how much this means to me because I don’t know him as well as you do aunty. I am really very upset.

Krishni & Karthika

Srinivas sir was an incredible musician who was known worldwide. He was known as a child prodigy and this had always inspired me when I was young myself. I was privileged to have him attend one of my arangetrams lessons where he gave me a lot of support, advice and encouragement. So sad that the musical world has lost such a great legend. He will always be remembered. May his soul rest in peace.

Namaste aunty, So sorry to hear of the passing away of Mandolin Srinivas sir. I hope you okay, thinking of you. May his soul rest in peace.

Vidya

I really hope you are o.k. Just heard the news about Mandolin Srinivas Sir, Such a shock. So sorry for your loss. I know he is very closed to you, so this must be so difficult. Sending you all my love. And please take care of yourself. Let we pray his soul rest in peace.
