It was the great Mysore T.Chowdiah who invented and played the stringed violin.

The seven-stringed violinist was none other than the magnificent Mysore Chowdiah. Experts believe that Chowdiah would have been the greatest violinist (as great as Yehudi Menuhin) of all time if he had stuck to the traditional four-stringed violin.

Hello , I'm Anil Prabhu & i own a company entitled "Dancing Dolphin" based in Central New Jersey that's in the business of distributing music for the N.American territory. I've been in the music industry for approximately 13 years in Bombay & have been in New Jersey since the last year & a half. Dancing Dolphin has exclusive contracts with approximately 20 Indian music cos prominent amongst which are reputable Indian cos such as BMG/Inreco/Geethanjali/Lahari/Sagar Sangeeth/Aditya etc & until now was only servicing wholesellers but am in the process of developing my website www.dancingdolphinmusic.com & have started servicing direct enquiries as i find that there is a genuine lack of maturity to the retail environment as regards Indian music. From the cos that i represent,quite a few are from the South & hence have an array of carnatic/devotional/sanskrit shlokas etc. I have noticed from this forum that there are quite a few queries pertaining to the non availability of carnatic titles & am willing to give it a shot in trying to obtain the same for them. Kindly revert with enquiries at aprabhu@hotmail.com my tel # is 732- 6989880. Warm regards, Anil Prabhu.
