Carnatic (South Indian) classical vocal concert consisting of one primary vocalist, accompanied by an ensemble of five accompanists.
The proposed project/event is a Carnatic (South Indian) classical vocal concert at Englert Theatre in Iowa City, Iowa on October 06, 2012 to propagate and promote this scientific, ancient and wonderful music system in USA.
This event for which Sarva Sree Foundation (SSF) www.sarvasree.org is applying for funding will feature a renowned vocalist Sharreth Vasudevan (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sharreth) from the state of Kerala in South India, accompanied by an ensemble of five accompanists Arun Ramamurthy (Violin: www.arunramamurthy.com ), Prasant Radhakrishnan (Saxophone: www.prasantmusic.com ), Vasanth Vaseegaran (Keyboard: : www.musicianinside.com ), Akshay Anantapadmanabhan (Mrudangam: www.akshaylaya.com ) and Dr. Ravi Balasubramanian (Ghatam: http://sites.google.com/site/ghatamravi/ ) who are all experts in instrumental music, and who live in the New England area and California.
They will perform both traditional South Indian classical music and more contemporary fusion music. SSF will also film the event, and as was the case with the first SSF sponsored event in September 2010, will produce a DVD/CD of it that will be marketed in South Asia (India and Bangladesh) and the USA.
The proposed concert will promote this rhythmic and lilting form of classical music to the University community and will give a unique experience and opportunity for the members of University and the music lovers of Eastern Iowa.
Due to the success of our first concert in 2010 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S4D1dS-59X8&lr=1&feature=mhee, we expect many faculty and students from the Music and Dance departments at the University of Iowa to attend.
