Madhusoodanan was born on 7th of August 1981 in Jaffna. From a young age Madhusoodanan was exposed to Sai Bhajans and as a result developed a keen interest for music. His passion for the flute was triggered when he heard a sweet melody being played in a Bhajan and was intrigued by the instrument at the age of 8. He started to learn the basic notations in the flute under the loving guidance of Natkeeran Anna in Nallore, Jaffna. After about 4 months Madhusoodanan and his family decided to leave SriLanka, due to the increasing unrest in the north eastern regions.
In 1993, Madhusoodanan along with his parents and two sisters came to the UK. In 1995, he was able to continue his flute training under the guidance of “Venuganamani Sri Pitchaiyappa Gnanavarathan” and went on to perform his “Arangetram” (first stage performance) at the age of 17. Madhusoodanan is so proud to be known as “Gnani” master’s first Flute student! :)
Since then Madhusoodanan has given numerous performances both as solo and accompanying artist, both in the Carnatic field and Cinema music. He occasionally travels to India to further develop his skills and knowledge and had the opportunity to learn from “Sikkal Mala Chandrashekar” and many other flute artists.
In 2004, 2005 and 2007 Madhusoodanan, during his trips to India via Heart Valve Bank charity organisation, had the chance to perform in front of Sathya Sai Baba, which he considers as the greatest privilege and blessing in his musical journey.
During one of his visit to India, Madhusoodanan witnessed a spell bounding performance by “Master Shashank Subramaniam” and also had the opportunity to learn from Shashank in 2007.
In 2012 Madhusoodanan had the great opportunity of accompany the legend K.S.Chithra in one of her tours to London, along with playback singers Priya Hemesh and Ananthu. Again in October 2013, by being part of “London Beats”, Madhusoodanan had yet another privilege of accompanying the Legend K.S.Chithra in another tour, along with the great Violin Legend KalyanaSundaram, and also “Supersinger” Legends Sathya Prakash and Anakha Sadan.
Madhusoodanan Continues to give Carnatic and Light Music Performances. He also teaches Flute in Various Tamil Schools in West London.
