Queens Library in Partnership with The Louis Armstrong House Museum and The Kupferberg Center for the Arts at Queens College celebrates the 50th Anniversary of Louis Armstrong’s original recording of the iconic song ‘What a Wonderful World.’ This is a song inspired by the Great Satchmo’s life in Queens – a song that still inspires millions of people around the world!

Prasanna, a guitarist, and composer with a prolific and diverse body of work, will offer his interpretation of the song as well as a medley of unique Indian Carnatic music. Prasanna has earned worldwide praise not only for his expertise in performing the ancient and demanding art of Carnatic music on the electric guitar but also for the special and instantly identifiable way with which he blends Carnatic music with contemporary western and world music!
