Ghatam Karthick

  • Published By: sruti

Ghatam, the quintessential musical earthen pot, has become synonymous with the name of S. Karthick, for he alone enjoys the popularity of being referred to as ‘Ghatam Karthick’. As a child, the earthen pot that could produce music in its pure, earthy and natural form (unlike other instruments crafted to produce music) fascinated him. He would accompany his mother and aunt to the shop, buy pots, play on them, break them and buy new ones! This continued till he decided while in class seven that he wanted to become a ghatam artist.
