A 13-year-old musical genius, Lydian Nadhaswaram on Thursday won 1 million dollars on a US-based show ‘The World’s Best’.
Lydian gave a spectacular performance as he played two pianos simultaneously at a flawless speed, blindfolded.
Lydian said, “I have been playing the Piano for four years. I got inspiration from my sister, who plays the piano and my father, who plays keyboards. I’m happy that I won this prize,”
He added saying, “My parents home-school me so that I can solely concentrate on learning piano. I want to be the world’s best composer.”
Varshan Satish, Lydian’s father who is a composer of late Tamil Nadu Chief Minister Jayalalitha’s funeral song asserted: “I can’t contain my happiness. He started singing at an early age. I knew he would become a great composer one day.”
Other than 50 judges, Faith Hill, RuPaul Charles, and Drew Barrymore were the judges.
