Description:
Dwaram Venkataswamy Naidu ()(b. 8 November 1893 to d. 25 November 1964) was one of the most important carnatic violinists of the 20th century.

Yehudi Menuhin, a world renowned violinist, was greatly impressed when he heard Dwaram play at Justice P.V. Rajamannar's house. The famous playback singer Ghantasala Venkateswara Rao learned Carnatic music under Naidu.
