Panchavadyam Video CD instrumental devotional percussion on Idaykka, Thimila ,Madhalam, Ila Thalam and Kombu by Percussion maestro Padmabhushan Kuzhur Narayana Marar major set panchavadyam with Thrikoor Rajan and party direction by Manju Dharman Percussion maestro Kuzhur Narayana Marar, whose prowess on the thimila made many ‘Panchavadyam’ ensembles delectable, Narayana Marar’s contributions to Panchavadyam had won him the Padmabhushan.Born into the Manikkamangalam family (Vadakkinimarath tharavadu) near Kalady, Narayana Marar was initially a musician at the Kuzhur Subramanya Swami Temple. His last thimila recital was also held at the temple on his 87th birthday.Having mastered percussion instruments like the thimila and the chenda from gurus Puzhakkarapilly Rama Marar and Manikkamangalam Narayana Kurup, he along with his brothers, Kuzhur Kuttappa Marar and Chandran Marar, formed a percussion trio that delighted Panchavadyam connoisseurs for decades.Narayana Marar’s debut as a thimila player at the Thrissur Pooram festival from the Paramekkavu side was in 1944 at the young age of 19.Years later, he went on to become the ‘pramani’ (helmsman) of the Pooram festival. “He was very affable and accommodating and would go that extra mile to generously accommodate even relatively less knowledgeable percussionists in the Panchavadyam ensemble, but that was never at the cost of quality. Kerala Kalamandalam honoured the master percussionist in 1990. In 2005, he won the Pallavur Appu Marar award
