Shantala Subramanyam grew up in a prestigious Indian musical family. Her earliest lessons were
in Carnatic vocal music and the complex drumming patterns of Indian classical music. She later focused on the flute, originally as an accompanist and eventually a soloist. The southern Indian Carnatic style is largely derived from vocal music and remained less influenced by Arabic and Persian music than the northern Indian Hindustani style. In addition to Subramanyam’s dexterous flute playing, this concert features Avaneeswaram Vinu on violin and Palghat Mahesh on percussion.
Presented in conjunction with Great Lakes Aradhana Council (GLAC).
