with the Navatman Carnatic Collective
Roulette, 509 Atlantic Avenue (at 3rd Ave), Downtown Brooklyn
South Indian classical violin maestro Ganesh Rajagopalan (of Ganesh-Kumaresh duo fame) has been acclaimed for his performances and compositions over the past four decades. As a child prodigy he began performing at the age of seven, and made 100 stage appearances by the time he was 10. He has toured the world, appearing with a wide array of classical, jazz and world music artists, including Zakir Hussain, and composed numerous ragas, varnams and thillanas, as well as music for dance ballets, theatre, and films. In this concert, where he will explore the divine and healing through music, he will perform on violin and sing and also lead an interactive meditation of chanting with the audience. The chanting will be supported by the Navatman Carnatic Collective, an 8-person choir. Ganesh ji will be accompanied by Akshay Ganesh on violin, Abhinav Seetharaman on mrdangam (double-headed barrel drum) and Sriram Ramesh on kanjira (frame drum).
