The two main branches of Indian classical music – Hindustani and Carnatic – are similar in their fundamental approach to melodic and rhythmic organisation (raga and tala), yet they are distinct traditions; distinguishable on the basis of some concepts, styles and forms, poetry and song repertoires, intonation, ornamentation and instrumentation. The Carnatic tradition is predominantly practised in the five southern Indian states.
Trained under B. S. Sharma and C. Ranganathan, T. M. Krishna, is an eminent Carnatic vocalist and a social commentator. Gifted with a robust and dynamic voice, Krishna’s music eludes standard analysis; traditional yet stunningly innovative with his original interpretation of it. Having an egalitarian approach to diverse musical traditions, he is known to include in his concert unusual repertoire of unsung composers.
A highly acclaimed orator, he has several path-breaking initiatives, awards, and award-winning publications to his credit.
In this recital, T. M. Krishna will present an array of forms: padam, varnam and svarajati composed by some composers belonging to the period (prior to 1765 AD), which is before the rise of the revered trinity of Carnatic music: Thyagaraja, Muthuswami Dikshitar and Syama Sastri.
