Gautam Tejas Ganeshan has performed widely in the SF Bay Area since 2004, including at the SFMOMA, BAM/PFA, SFJAZZ, Asian Art Museum (SF), Hertz Hall at UC Berkeley, and more, as well as having given workshops at the San Francisco Conservatory of Music and Stanford Jazz Workshop, and guest-lectures for music courses at UC Berkeley and UC Santa Cruz. He is the founder and director of the Sangati Center, a non-profit chamber music concert series in San Francisco that has hosted more than 400 public chamber concerts in SF, Oakland, and Berkeley since 2006, and has earned support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Alliance for California Traditional Arts, and more.

Gautam Tejas Ganeshan’s authentic voice and intelligent approach breathe new life into an old tradition. Delivered in chamber ensembles, his concerts reflect a traditional aesthetic, transforming a highly cultured musical heritage through the creation of an ongoing body of original works based in love and understanding of Carnatic music – its elaborate structures, extensive improvisations, and the utmost sincerity that distinguishes its greatest practitioners. His performances express authenticity more than ethnicity, immediacy more than nostalgia, and allow listeners the unprecedented experience of having a natural linguistic purchase on the complex song forms of a rich oral tradition.
