I am sure most of you all should know guitar Prasanna. For those who dont know him, here is an intro
" Prasanna is one of the most sought after studio musicians in India. He has recorded with top film composers like Illayaraja, A.R.Rahman, Lakshmikant Pyarelal, Karthik Raja, Deva, Vidyasagar, Anandh etc. ".
Well here is latest contribution in LAGAAN
"The sound track of Lagaan - the Hindi film by Aamir Khan with music composed by A.R.Rahman has been released. The string orchestral sections of the title track (Lagaan..Once upon a time) was arranged, orchestrated and conducted by Prasanna. (Thanks A.R. for asking me for the 'write'!- P). "

Changing the very foundation of rock guitar itself thru carnatic approach! His compositions are also exquisite, most sound a bit abstract, but he tries to be IRish in resolving tunes and Rahmanish in rhythms.
Got to hear his take on "Raghunatha" (the intro guitar is quite similar to IR' Roja Ondru in OMaane OMaaney)
Credit IR in composing for all known and unknown instruments, and Prasanna in bringing the bewildering depth of Carnatic music to the world thru the extraordinarily fluid and ambient sounds of the guitar - for this one, I say Thank You ARR as he composed July Madham Vandhaal with Prasanna' intro. (But among composers, I think Karthik Raja gave him the best pieces)
Check out Prasanna' Electronica CD samples also on his website.
