Mandolin Great U. Shrinivas has passed on

mandolin u shrinivas

My dear friend Shrinivas has died today at the age of 45. He had undergone a liver transplant and complications ocurred.

What a loss to our mandolin community. He was one of the most incredibly talented and yet humble musicians/people I have ever encountered.

Our musical world will not be the same without what he would have continued to give us. He was too young.

Shrinivas and I met first in 1990 at the Rudelstadt World Music Festival in Germany. It was a week putting together a show with 10 mandoinists from all over the world. After that, I would go to see him perform with John McLaughlin's Shakti group whenever we were in the same town and each time we spoke about doing a project together. Sadly that had not happened yet. Rest in Peace our Dear Mandolin Brother
