To open our new season we have invited artist Vijay Venkat who will be playing the rare Vichitra Veena. This is an ancient Indian stringed slide instrument that has a very few practitioners today due to its difficult nature.Venkat is a self taught performer who has brought in new techniques and innovations to this instrument, giving it a new dimension. He will be accompanied on mridangam by Balaji Krishnamurthy.
