Meet TA Kiran who proves his ability in carnatic music despite disability


24 years old musician TA Kiran gave his first Carnatic music performance in Thrissur in Kerala recently.

The concert was special because Kiran is blind and has cerebral palsy.

Encouraged by his mother, Kiran graduated in music by writing exams with the help of scribes.

In carnatic music, one has to coordinate using the hand along with singing, which is quite difficult for those with cerebral palsy.

But Kiran did not give up. Since he was also blind, he learned by heart his song lessons, which helped him to improve his memory and ability to recreate.

Kiran is looking forward to get a Ph.D in music and a government job.
