Popular southern composer Rajamani has passed away. He was 60. He suffered a sudden cardiac arrest.
Born into a family of Carnatic musicians, Rajamani’s first tryst with music happened when he accompanied his father B A Chidambaranath on a devotional album ‘Gangayar Pirakkunnu’. At that time he was barely 13 years old.
He composed music for nearly 70 films and rendered background score for over 700 films.
His last film as a composer was 2012 Malayalam romantic-drama ‘Hide n Seek’. He is survived by his wife and son, Achu Rajamani, who too is a music composer.
