A free world music event in Hugh Lane Gallery on Sunday 9th February, presenting the Carnatic style of music which is of major cultural importance in India.

This is a rare opportunity to enjoy a traditional performance live in Dublin, which has influenced many Western musicians from The Beatles to the great jazz guitarist John McLaughlin.

The main emphasis in Carnatic music is on vocal music; most compositions are written to be sung, and even when played on instruments, they are meant to be performed in gāyaki (singing) style.

This trio will be led by Shantala Subramyanam, from Bangalore, heartland of carnatic music, renowned for its emphasis on improvisation on beautiful ragas within a highly evolved rhythmic vocabulary. Like many Carnatic musicians, she started playing in early childhood under the tutelage of her father, himself an eminent musician, and today she’s recognized as an important and authentic voice in this demanding tradition.
