A.R Rahman held a special event on Thursday to honor Lydian Nadhaswaram, the child prodigy musician who won a million US dollars on the show ‘The World’s Best’. Lydian has been a student at A.R Rahman’s KM Music Conservatory for the past four years on a full-scholarship and he has been training under Surojeet Chatterji in the Russian Piano School.
The academy celebrates 11 years of bringing international music training to the future generations of Indian students and on the special occasion Founder and Principal A.R Rahman said “Lydian’s success is India’s success, in a world with so much negativity and restlessness, this has brought hope, love and happiness to our lives. Who knew that, KMMC, a seed sown 11 years ago, would bring such inspiration to so many, such is the extraordinary power of music”.
Lydian won on the international CBS show ‘The World’s Best’ with signature performances including playing blindfolded, playing two pianos, and dazzling at breath taking speeds. He has become a household name with viral YouTube videos and appearances on the Ellen Show.
