Madurai Mani Iyer

About Site

This website is hosted, developed and maintained by Gokul.B. A lot of people contributed to this website and therefore need to be acknowledged.

Swetha.B is the main developer of this project. She has contributed heavily to all developmental stages of this website.

Adityen Krishnan, Vivek Kannan.E, and Sathya Teja.K form the rest of the developer team. Without them, this site wouldn’t have seen the light of day. Most importantly they are great friends.

Sriram.K graciously agreed to sponsor this website and I can't thank him enough for that. He is not only a close family member but also a great friend and mentor.

I am indebted to V.Vishnuramprasad sir for providing content for the website. Most of the information found here was gathered from his original website on Madurai Mani Iyer, his posts elsewhere on the web and my interactions with him for the past one year. The Photos were retrieved from his personal collection. He did not have any reservations whatsoever about letting me use his content on my site, and I am very grateful for that. He is an authority on Mani Iyer’s music, but more importantly a great Mani Iyer and a Carnatic music fan in general.

His website on Mani Iyer can be found here http://maduraimani.tripod.com/index.html

Sri. N. Balasubramanian needs a special mention here. He is a great Madurai Mani Iyer fan and responsible for a lot of Mani Iyer’s music being in circulation among Rasikas today.

Sri. Chitti. S. Venugopalan is another person to be mentioned. A great Mani Iyer fan, he has been bringing Mani Iyer’s music to Rasikas by organizing Mani Iyer listening sessions regularly. I also thank him for including me into the organizing team.

Special thanks to Sri. Venkata Kailasam sir for allowing us to integrate his Mani Iyer Facebook page with this website. His blog contains music of many greats of Carnatic music, including that of Mani Iyer, and all of them can be downloaded for free.
