A traditional chamber concert without the distortions and sound sculpting of amplifiers presents carnatic music the way it was intended. You will hear the myriad microtones of the tambura and the genuine reverberations and naadam of the instruments led by pure, full throated vocals. This type of concert has become increasingly rare in recent decades but is making a comeback. Dhvani is committed to presenting one or two such performances as part of its annual offering.
