Event on 25th August 2022, 9:30 AM to 11:00 AM Main Auditorium, Central campus

TM Krishna has over the last two decades forged an uncharted path. As an artist who has enhanced his sensibilities by steadfastly making personal discoveries, understanding the world and its inconvenient truths, sharing his experiences through his music, he is a rare Indian Classical musician today who is able to strike a chord with listeners beyond the confines of conventional classical music circuits.

Maintaining the exacting standards of the form as a musician and also as a writer, researcher and critic, TM Krishna has widened the reach of Karnatik music among new and eclectic audiences in India and abroad. This ability to draw in new listeners and communicate the magnificence of Karnatik music without intimidating them with references to the famed exclusivity of its form or its historical position as a rarefied genre, is a rare instance of transcending the structures of a limiting ecosystem while being located within it.
