A violinist for all seasons
Violin is a blind instrument. One must exercise caution every time the finger glides over the strings. Even the slightest slip can result in a discordant note

Music Academy
Embar Kannan fitted excellently into the role of an accompanying violin, keeping close to the main artiste's style, without overreahing or underplaying. His rejoinders in alapana, kalpanaswara and tanam echoed the artist's vocabulary and composition. In his solo interpretation he couldd demonstrate not only his individuality but also the scope of the instrument.

This violin is Silent
Violinist Embar Kannan is proud of his 'silent' violin. "If it is not amplified, you can't hear the sounds", he says. A product of Yamaha, this electric violin is specially used by Kanna in fusion concerts and ensembles. And this he does to match the amplification achieved by the keyboard, drums or the mandolin.

Splendid Synchronisation
Embar Kannan on the violin was soulful and innovative while Sudhir Nayak on te harmonium was elegant and closely emulating the human voice. They developed each raga both in unison and in jugalbandi.
