Sruti: Sharing the Indian Classical Music Experience

Jill Pasternak explores Indian Classical Music with Sruti.

The unique sounds of India fill the airwaves with violins and ancient Carnatic bamboo flute, tabla, mridangam, kanjira, dholak, Khamaicha  and mesmerizing improvised ragas sung and played by celebrated Indian musicians.  Guests on Crossover are Raji Venkatesan, president of Sruti: The India Music and Dance Society; Kiranavali Vidyasankar, Carnatic music teacher, writer and performer; and Steven Hopkins, professor of religion at Swarthmore college, whose interest in Hinduism has taken him to India and drawn him to Carnatic music. 

Listen to three tracks of Indian classical music (Carnatic music) that you'll hear at Sruti's  November 10th concert at the Montgomery County Community College.

Sruti presents an exploratory journey into the influences and integration of folk music with Indian classical music at Montgomery County Community College in Blue Bell on November 10th at 4:30 p.m.  More Information.
