Prince Rama Varma, a member of the Royal Family of Travancore, is a direct descendant of Maharaja Swathi Thirunal Rama Varma and Raja Ravi Varma.  Falling in love with music at an early age, Sri.Rama Varma studied music first with Prof.Vechoor Hariharasubramania Iyer for 14 years, until his demise in 1994. At present he is undergoing training under Sangeethakalanidhi Dr. M. Balamuralikrishna and has gone on to become one of his foremost disciples.

K.S.Narayanaswamy, who taught him until his demise.        

 Teacher: Fluent in Malayalam, English, Hindi, Tamil and French, Varma is well read and has travelled widely and uses inputs from walks of life other than music too to enrich his art. His music is noted for its strict adherence to tradition coupled with his own charming brand of creativity. He specializes in taking classes and giving lecture demonstrations about various aspects of music to much appreciation and delight from his students and members of the public. He believes in making his lectures entertaining and his concerts informative.
