Dr. Natesan Ramani commonly known as N. Ramani or N. Flute Ramani, was an eminent Indian Carnatic flautist. Born in Tiruvarur in 1934, the birthplace of Carnatic Trinity Thyagaraja, Muthusamy Dikshitar and Shyama Shastry — Ramani had his early lessons from his maternal grandfather Azhiyur Narayanasami Iyer. Ramani’s mother Saradambal was also well-versed in music and it was she who wanted to mould him like T.R. Mahalingam alias Mali, who was a relative. Ramani was also the winner of the Sangita Kalanidhi award of the Music Academy. Ramani is also credited for introducing the long flute into Carnatic music.
