About the Actor

'How can you play Carnatic music on a guitar'? is a question that was on everyone's mind when Prasanna daringly took to one of the world's most ancient musical forms on one of the world's most modern instruments - the electric guitar! 20 years on, the question is still asked by everyone but now in disbelief at how Prasanna brings out the subtlest of microtones on a standard electric guitar and goes even further by extending his signature style to Jazz, Blues, Rock, Classical music and everything that he feeds in as a contemporary musician of today.

In a world studded with brilliant guitarists, 'Prasanna plays like nobody on the planet' according to one Jazz critic. As a guitarist and composer, Prasanna's prolific body or work is as diverse as it is integrated. This includes over eleven Carnatic albums, the just released live concert DVD 'Live in Sedona', the Carnatic/Rock Jimi Hendrix tribute album Electric Ganesha Land , a highly acclaimed Jazz Fusion album 'Be the Change' featuring several Grammy Award winning artists from the Jazz world, an eclectic solo guitar album 'Peaceful', a special triple guitar project 'Guitars' with the Belgian band Aka Moon, and numerous guitar tracks on multi-platinum Indian film soundtracks for such top composers as A.R. Rahman, Illayaraja and many more.

Prasanna has composed original music for the 2009 Oscar Award winning documentary 'Smile Pinki'. He has also composed scores for feature films such as 'Framed'. His original scores for contemporary dance theater include Shakespeare's 'Tempest' in Sydney, Australia, 'Sanaatana' in London, UK, 'A Story and a Song' in Boston, MA, 'Soliloquy' in Chennai, India and several more, His orchestration and arranging credits include the title score for the Oscar nominated Bollywood film 'Lagaan' with music composed by A.R. Rahman. Prasanna's acclaimed guitar instructional DVD 'Ragamorphism', gives an in-depth look at how he stretches the boundaries of improvisation.

The North Sea Jazz Festival, Middelheim Jazz Festival, Festival Guitares Du Monde, La Fete de la Musique, Les Orientales De St. Florent Le Vieil, Festival Jazz En Artois, PanaFest, Lotus world music festival are some of the top international festivalsPrasanna has performed at.

Subramaniam, Umayalpuram Sivaraman, Trichy Sankaran and several others.

Prasanna is a member of the highly acclaimed trio 'Tirtha' with pianist Vijay Iyer and tabla player Nitin Mitta. Prasanna is also a member of Vijay Iyer's Quintet.

With an engineering degree in Naval Architecture from the prestigious Indian Institute of Technology, Madras, he went on to pursue his passion for music and graduated Magna-Cum-Laude with an honors degree from the famed Berklee College of Music in Boston. His multi-faceted musical personality has been recognized with such diverse awards as the 'Lifetime Achievement Award for Carnatic music for 2003' from H.H. Sri Jayendra Saraswathi, India's most revered spiritual leader and 'Acharya' of the Kanchi Kamakoti Peetam, 'The Berklee College of Music Guitar Achievement Award' (for outstanding work as a Student Jazz guitarist'), 'The Berklee College of Music-Composition Achievement Award' (for outstanding work as a Student Classical composer) and many others.
