The magic that is Isai Selvamani Karthiegasen Pillay

Forty-nine-year-old Isai Selvamani Karthiegasen Pillay is a world-renowned gem in the world of carnatic or South Indian classical music.

But for him this is simply a way of life, having accompanied his father on stage when he was just two and half years old – Pillay literally grew up with music. And today he has made immeasurable gains in growing the interest for classical music among South Africans. 

In this Newsbreak Legends Series Taresh Harreeparshad visited Karthiegasen Pillay at his home in Ballito, north of KwaZulu Natal.
