The evening's performances include classical compositions from both parts of the world, and an inspiring and uplifting collaborative programme of new music infusing both Eastern and Western classical styles.

Chitravina N Ravikiran

Kala Sangam is delighted to bring back Ravikiran on the Chitravina. World renowned Carnatic musician and composer, Ravikiran, was a child prodigy and first debuted at the Malleshwaram Sangeeta Sabha, Bangalore, at the age of two. He has been playing the 12-stringed Chitravina since the age of 10. The chitravina (a fretless lute, also called a gotuvadyam) is one of the most exquisite of Indian musical instruments. With a history going back to nearly 2000 years, it is one of the oldest instruments in the world, and the forerunner of the fretted (Saraswati) veena.
