Carnatic Violin by Prof T N Krishnan
On 23rd August 2017, in an attempt to promote Carnatic classical music, SPIC MACAY IIIT Bangalore chapter hosted Prof. T N Krishnan, a name synonymous with the Violin. Sri M R Sainath accompanied him on the Mridangam and Sri Vaikom Gopalakrishnan on the Ghatam. Prof. T N Krishnan's music was at a leisurely pace, self-reliant with a rich classical overtone. The marriage between the bow and the strings is a gift of God and polishing it further depends on the amount of practice a vidwan puts in. Prof. Krishnan's bowing made his violin sing expressively. Members in the audience started tapping along with him on the beats and enjoyed the pieces.
