In 2007, when a 2-year-old boy from Chennai played a perfect drumbeat on his bedroom floor, it became obvious that young Lydian Nadhaswaram was destined for greatness. It began with him accompanying his father and sister on stage for gigs and watching his sister practice the piano at home. It was then that Lydian developed a fascination with the instrument. He would practice alongside his sister, playing Beethoven and Chopin without any sheet music, relying upon on-ear and intuition only.

This now 14-year old has skill unlike any other and is proficient in a variety of instruments, amongst which piano, drums, sitar, and bass guitar are notable. With just 6 years of practice, Lydian's fingers fly over piano keys effortlessly, playing classical melodies at breathtaking speeds.

He has since participated in a variety of national-level competitions, before participating in, and subsequently winning CBS's World's Best in 2019, playing two pianos simultaneously for his winning finale.  He is now a student at KM Music Conservatory, an institution by the A.R Rahman Foundation, and receives international level training in both Western as well as Indian classical.

With appearances on popular American television shows such as Ellen and Good Morning America, paired with unparalleled determination, persistence, and a hunger for learning this young prodigy is well on his way to success.
