After years of musical study, Ganesan Chellappah and Karthigesan Chellapah, two classical musical instrument players, have made a significant impact on the local music scene—with a boom, of course!

They have been raised together, and their father—who also serves as their classical music preceptor—has pushed the twins to pursue their common musical aspirations. Without any hurdles nor second thoughts, both of them continued their education at Annamalai University which is known as one of India's top institutions of higher learning and provider of coveted music degrees.

Furthermore, the two identical twin brothers – their music has transcended boundaries, making them a phenomenon in the Indian classical music platform. At the ripe age of 36, this Indian-rooted music duo has created music that is both new and unique yet still retains the feel of its Indian origins. It's inspiring to witness the incredible versatility that has made their music journey so successful!

Let’s have a look at what the twins specialised from:

The twins have each honed their skills on a particular Indian classical instrument - Ganesan plays the Thavil (a drum), and Karthigesan plays the Nadaswaram (a wind instrument). These musical instruments are designed to be performed in tandem as doing so produces a unique fusion of music and spirituality.

It came to the writer's surprise as they could even play Kollywood songs via the prestigious instruments. From ‘Rowdy Baby’ to unplugged AR Rahman music…the duo has left us spellbound. Check out the video below:
