He is a professor at the Centre for Linguistics, School of Language Sciences, The English and Foreign Languages University, Hyderabad. Prof. Vijayakrishnan is a linguist by profession and a vainika by training. He started learning the veena from his mother Late Srimati Karpagavalli Gopalakrishnan who learnt the art of veena playing from the musicologist of Kritimanimalai fame Late Sri Ranga Ramanuja Ayyangar. Prof. Vijayakrishnan’s style can be traced to the unique ‘dhanammal’ bani of veena playing which is noted for the delicacy of the strumming and the intricacy of the left hand technique. Prof. Vijayakrishnan is the author of the book “The Grammar of Carnatic Music” (Walter de Gruyter).
