WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

Patri Satish Kumar, a musician from the great carnatic tradition performs with Triplicane Sekar on the Tavil (the first time this South Asian percussion instrument has featured in the festival) and Amrit on khanjira. Pravin Godkhindi and Supreet Deshpande follow with ragas - one of the key structures of Indian music, on basuri flute and tabla, India's iconic percussion drums.
