Narayan in 2009

Ram Narayan (born 25 December 1927) is an Indian classical musician who became the first internationally successful sarangi player.


  • The greatest blessing that one can get from music is that it makes an artist immensely satisfied with life irrespective of the financial condition in which they may be.
  • My mission was to obliterate the blemish which the sarangi carried due to its social origins. I hope I have succeeded in this.
  • At one time, sarangi exponents used to be called gurus and ustads because they were so learned that they could teach vocalists a thing or two. It wasn't surprising that many of them turned into vocalists and made a name for themselves independently.
