The Art of South Indian Violin, with Arun Ramamurthy

Hear this show now: | Add or read comments

Arun Ramamurthy is a great young Carnatic - South Indian - classical violinist. He adds jazz to the mix with the Arun Ramamurthy Trio, whose CD Jazz Carnatica hits the streets in October. Arun joins us tonight as guest-DJ to explore Indian violin styles. We'll preview his trio's new CD too.

Arun is performing this Wendesday, Aug 13th, 7:15 at LaMama, 74 East 4th St as part of the "Drive East" festival. Drive East is a week long music & dance “season” modeled after the famous Chennai season in December. He'll be presenting a solo Carnatic concert with mrudangist Rajna Swaminathan. Info:


I have two pairs of tickets available to see the Karsh Kale Collective blend Indian and electronic sounds at Joe's Pub, 425 Lafayette St., Saturday night August 23rd. Note - it's a late show: 11:30 pm doors, midnight show.

If you're interested in being in the running for a pair of tickets, send an email to me here with the word TIX in the subject line. I'll notify winners on Monday.
