As the name brings in ,little sparks of recognition, a twitch to the eye, to anyone from the land of backwaters........ohh yes him....... sweet melodious songs..........Pradeep Somasundaran is a singer with unique heart. He started his Karnatic/music training at an age of 12 and started his performing career at the age of 16. He worked with All India Radio and Doordarshan. He sings classical Karnatic, Film Music, Ghazals, Devotional songs etc, in Malayalam, Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, English &………………..wow, Japanese languages.

College of Applied Science, Kerala, managed by Institute of Human Resources Development. He also conducts lecture demonstration programs on different dialects of music and regularly appears in many popular T.V programs Pradeep feels he has been neglected by the so called Malayalam film industry that which has never discouraged his inner soul who’s dedication to music, nor to the Malayalam film songs. Pradeep is a humble listener and admirer of Padmasree Yesudas. He never insisted
or demanded to be entitled as a singer in any movies. Great admirer of the new generation singers, Pradeep is always ready to sing/experiment with any language, he was not ready fall on anyone’s feet for opportunities’.
