Mandolin Shrinivas is no more

Chennai, 19 September

We learn to our profound sorrow and shock that Mandolin U Shrinivas (45) passed away at a city hospital today after a period of illness. He was a gentle giant and one of our greatest musicians, truly worthy of being described as a genius. It is a great loss to the world of music. Our deeply felt sympathies to his family and friends.
