Carnatic music is South India’s classical music, an art form practiced for over 3000 years. The carnatic tradition is founded in the indian systems of raga (melodic modes) and tala (rhythmic cycles). The music blends complex devotional compositions with intricate improvisations and virtuosic interplay between the voice or a lead instrumentalist with the accompanying mridangam (drum) and violin. ‘An Afternoon of Carnatic Music’ offers a unique learning opportunity and enjoyable experience featuring a workshop and a pre-concert discussion followed by a grand classical concert featuring Kiranavali Vidyasankar (voice), Keerthana Sankar (violin), and Vinod Seetharaman (mridangam).
