Festival of Parallels
Here is my music season schedule this year. As usual, I will be curating and performing the “Festival of Parallels”, treating Carnatic music in parallel with Western classical music and Hindustani music, drawing out parallels and dissimilarities in an explanation-cum-performance format. This year marks the 7th consecutive performing year with my friend and collaborator Sikkil Gurucharan, who were first presented by friend and artiste Anita Ratnam exactly 7 years ago in December 2006.
I also welcome Gaurav Mazumdar, renowned Sitar exponent and senior student of Pt Ravi Shankar for a special collaboration on the 24th, while my absolute inspirations and phenomenal musicians Sri V R Shekar (“The Flower Gatherers”, 15th December),
Sri Lalgudi Krishnan (“An Incurable Romance”, 19th December) and Smt Jayanthi Kumaresh (“Strings in Parallel”, 29th December) will be joining me as well.
