The musical journey of Balabhaskar– The debut public appearance of Balabhaskar with his violin was at his age of twelve. Though he is from an orthodox classical background, he always showed interest in all possibilities of music. Balabhaskar as a great enthusiast used to go through every music record that comes to him and started building something from that basement.
In his campus period too, he showed his talent in composing music, which became professional when he became the youngest music director in Malayalam. That was at his age of seventeen and the film was Mangalya Pallakk, the audio of which was marketed by Magna Sound, giving him a good start.
Balabhaskar is still hugged to heart for his soulful romantic compositions for two albums of East Coast named Ninakkai and Adyamayi and later with another album for Manorama Music named ‘Heart Beats’. As a music composer he had a dreamful time with Dr. K. J. Yesudas, Hairharan, Suresh Wadkar, K. S. Chitra, Sujatha, Sreenivas, Karthik and handfuls more of legendary singers singing to his notes.
Balabhaskar’s brilliance on stage helped him in presenting musical bonanza in various parts of the world, east to west. He had also created a band named ‘Confusion’- concentrated on fusion, which was followed by ‘The Big Indian Band’.
Presently his band is Balaleela which is only a few months old, yet marking its presence in and out of the country. Balabhaskar along with keyboard player Stephen Devassy and drummer Sivamani has been an ever favourite trio for the lovers of instrumental music worldwide.
His performances with Padmasree Mattannoor Sankarankutty too invited the attention of music lovers. The Bala touch of connecting with the audience and getting them move to his tunes has marked his presence well at stage shows and classical concerts across countries.
