Dr Suchethan Rangaswamy 


Dr. Suchethan Rangaswamy was born on 18th June 1979 in Bangalore, Karnataka, India. He began learning Carnatic Vocal music at the age of four. His initial training was under his mother Smt. Suma Rangaswamy and later under various gurus Like Vid. Dr. Sarvamangala Shankar, Vid. Smt. M.S. Vidya and Karnataka Kalashree Vid. P. Ramaa for a period of almost eight years. His skills were further sharpened under Padmabhushana Vid. Dr. R.K. Srikantan and Kalaimamani Vid. P. Unnikrishnan. Constant training under them led to innovations and blending of tradition and modernity in Suchethan’s singing as he continues to learn from Vid. Unnikrishnan.
