By Dr. L. Subramaniam
Featuring Anindo Chatterjee & group
An NCPA Presentation in association with Saroj Jhaveri Foundation
While remaining rooted in Carnatic or South Indian music, the internationally renowned violinist and composer, L. Subramaniam, has collaborated with legendary musicians across the world and made pioneering efforts in the field of Indo-Jazz fusion.
The evening’s fare includes a selection of Subramaniam’s popular compositions and features a unique percussion symphony. In addition to the percussion sounds as practised in different parts of India, the composition also features Hindustani and Carnatic vocal percussion segment (bols / shollukattu) adorned with five different rhythmic subdivisions (panchanadais).
Interestingly, this development is laid on the tapestry of a ragamala, evoking different aesthetic sentiments (rasa). The rich content of violin solos and interludes with other melodic instruments leads to a pulsating climax.
Besides the violin maestro, the concert will feature percussionists like Anindo Chatterjee (tabla), Ramanamurthy V.V. (mridangam), Ganesh Kumar (kanjira), Satya Sai G (morsing), N. Radhakrishnan (ghatam) and Prasad Kulkarni (octapad) along with a dholak artiste. Enriching the melodic canvas led by the violin are Frijo Francis (piano), Atul Raninga (keyboard), Alwyn Fernandes (guitar), Fassery Diabate (balafon) and Ninad Mulaokar (bansuri).
