A Carnatic Quartet; Shreya Devnath – Violin, Mylai Karthikeyan – Nadaswaram, Praveen Sparsh – Mridangam & Jeevanantham – Tavil
This quartet has been conceptualized as an effort to explore the coming together of two distinct instrumental artforms within the Carnatic tradition. The melodic instruments in this collaboration, violin, and nadaswaram, come from very different cultures. So is the case with the mridangam and tavil.
Nirmala Rajasekar is a world renowned Carnatic virtuoso recognized as one of the best Saraswathi veena players of today in the South Indian Classical music genre – a consummate artist who has carved a special place amidst audiences across the globe. She has been performing on her beloved ‘veena’ for 38 years now.
