An evening of exhilaration for me as a Carnatic musician, when on 11th June, 2016, I will perform at the 70th Ojai Music Festival in Ventura County, California. A moment to be cherished forever as this is the first in its 70 year history that they have invited a Carnatic musician to perform at the Ojai festival. Ojai occupies a significant place in contemporary history with many celebrated musicians such as Arnold Schoenberg and Igor Stravinsky having made it their home.
To perform our Carnatic music in its authentic form, to such an international audience is indeed a matter of great pleasure and privilege for me.
All this has been possible due to the unstinting support of my rasikas who have stood by me in my musical journey.
With best regards,
