Description

This revitalising concert effortlessly weaves together the melodic beauty of the flute and violin with the ryhtmic heartbeat of the mridangam and tabla to create a musical experience that is truly for the mind and soul.

Grammy award nominated Shashank Subramanyam is a flute maestro known internationally for his scintillating logic-defying virtuosity. Shashank began learning the flute from a young age and performed in the senior most spot of the Music Academy at just 12 years old – a record yet to be broken in the history of South Indian music. Now with over 30 years experience, he is considered one of the very best Bamboo flute artists in the world and has performed across the globe with the likes of Zakir Hussain, Pt. Vishwa Mohan Bhatt, Paco De Lucia and Pandit Ajoy Chakraborthy.

Joining him in this unique concert is violinist Mysore Srikanth. Mysore is a disciple of Vidwan Sri HK Narasimha Murthy and follows the 'Parur style' of fingering. He has played regularly for All India Radio as well as accompanying some of the world’s best musicians in their live performances, including household names such as Bombay Jayashri and Abhishek Raghuram.

Joining Shashank and Mysore are two masters of percussion, Parupalli Phalgun on mridangam and Kousic Sen on tabla. Parupalli is a multi-award winning mridangam vidwan who has toured extensively around the world, accompanying some of the biggest names in South Indian music. Kousic Sen, the master drummer from Kolkata, is known internationally for his expert skill and energy.

Artists: Shashank Subramanyam (flute), Mysore Srikanth (violin), Parupalli Phalgun (mridangam), Kousic Sen (tabla)
