A Carnatic Classical vocal concert by Sikkil Gurucharan, accompanied by V. Sanjeev on Violin & Patri Satish Kumar on Mridangam (South Indian Drum)
Sikkil Gurucharan is at the forefront of classical vocalists in India today. His tremendous stage-presence, awe-inspiring voice, great scholarship and ability to transcend cultural borders makes him the greatest ambassador of his chosen field, the South Indian Classical Tradition. His youthful and innovative approach also draws a vast teen audience appeal – key for this tradition to survive and thrive.

The concert will include traditional raga compositions with elaborate and intricate improvisations. Mridangam virtuoso Patri Satish Kumar will perform a percussion solo during the concert. The evening promises to be both contemplative and calming, as well as ecstatic and energizing.
