B. Shree Sundarkumar is one of the leading Kanjira artists in the world of Rhythm music. Having entered the musical world at the young age of three, he has been mesmerizing audience with his intricate rhythm beats and innate creativity, that he inherited from his musical family. After the initial tutelage under his father, a renowned Mridangam player, Dr. K. B. S Mani, he underwent rigorous training under legendary Guru Karaikudi Sri R. Mani. It was under his guidance that Sundarkumar perfected the art of playing Mridangam, and then took to playing his most favorite percussion instrument, the Kanjira. His mastery and understanding of the subtle nuances of playing this instrument is unparalleled.    
Makanda taught me how to improvise and have my own sound! DD With an original sound on all the woodwind instruments, Makanda's voice was unmistakable, yearning, beautiful. From Cecil Taylor's Unit to Charlie Haden's Liberation Music Orchestra to Makanda's own bands, he charted the unknown at the highest level of musicianship.
