Professor Trichy Sankaran (left) and Dr. Karaikudi Subramanian
 
Dr. Karaikudi Subramanian, is one of India's leading performers on the vina. Known for his delicate, sweet renderings of traditional ragas and songs, his playing draws more attention to the devotional beauty of the works than to his considerable technical skill. Dr. Subramanian is the founding director of Brhaddhvani in Chennai, a research and training centre for the study of world music. He is the inaugural guest of the Shan and Jaya Chandrasekar Visiting Artist/Scholar Residency program in the Faculty of Fine Arts at York University.

Professor Trichy Sankaran is an internationally renowned percussion virtuoso noted for his sensitive, flawless accompaniment and mastery of the mrdangan, the traditional two-headed drum of South Indian classical music. He has won many honours and awards including, most recently, the
coveted title the “Sangita Kalanidhi”  bestowed by the Music Academy of Madras.
 
Free admission.
