S Latchappa Pillai ? a legend
Thiruvarur S Latchappa Pillai was born in the year 1925 ,
The musical family of Tiruvarur Saminatha Pillai and Vandammal.
Drawn by histrionic talents:
Chidambaram Jayarama Pillai, the maternal uncle was in those days
acting and playing in various roles along with singing in Bala
Vinodha Sabha of Madurai. Jayarama Pillai was living with Saminatha
Pillai. Naturally drawn by him, young Latchappa who was barely about
six years then, followed suit. Young Latchapp was a sensation as he
could sing and act well. But all was not too well for more than a
year. The company became bankrupt following heavy losses sustained
following wash out of its programmes while tented in Virudhachalam
when heavy rain played havoc.
Latchappa moved over to Chidambaram at the tender age of seven and
was with his sister?s family. Brother in law (Sister?s husband)
Natarajasundaram Pillai encouraged the boy to learn vocal music.
At the age of eight, Latchappa was back at Thiruvarur. He learnt
about 40 varnam and 200 keerthanam from his brother Balasubramania
Pillai. When under ten years of age, Latchappa, had opportunity to
play in the processions taken out by the Justice Party members lead
by Periyar E V Ramasami. For long Latchappa was the preferred
Nadhaswaram player for the party.
On the passing away of his mother, Latchappa moved to his Brother-in
law Natarajasundaram Pillai?s place in Kandanur in Chettinad. Here
Latchappa learnt nadhaswaram playing and mastered the art under his
Guru. He accompanied his Guru in various performances and gained
great experience and expertise.
Natarajasundaram Pillai took teenager Latchappa with him to Colombo.
In Yazhpanam nadhaswaram playing had large following and hence,
Latchappa was invited to perform there for about five years.
Latchappa barely 12, would be in Colombo for six months, performing
in various nadhaswaram programmes and would return to Thiruvarur for
