Early life[edit]

He was born in ThalasseryKannur, Kerala to M. Krishnan and Narayani in 1913. He started studying classical music from his childhood and was also a good football player.

Raghavan set a new trend in Malayalam film music with the release of the 1954 movie Neelakuyil. Renowned lyricist and Raghavan's friend P. Bhaskaran had penned the songs in Neelakkuyil. Raghavan himself has rendered his voice for one of the songs in Neelakkuyil. The song Kayalarikathu valayerinjappol went on to become an instant hit.[3]

Music career[edit]
