UChicago Presents Hosts Music Without Borders

Carnatic vocalist TM Krishna is a revolutionary force in Indian classical music and art. Born to musical parents, Krishna grew up in Brahmin society, surrounded by the traditional arts and educated by gurus of Carnatic musical form and style. Now one of India’s most revered musicians and one of the world’s most recognized representatives of Indian culture, however, Krishna is releasing Carnatic music from its upper-caste confines, revitalizing it and making it relevant for today.

TM Krishna performs with violinist RK Shriramkumar and mridangam player K Arun Prakash on the Logan Center stage on Sunday, October 14 at 3 pm. Before the concert, Krishna will join Professor of Music Anna Schultz on stage in conversation about his life and music, and on Monday, October 15, he presents a lecture titled “Art, Politics, and Society: the role and responsibility of artists to right-wing nationalism and social/religious conflict” at 7 pm in International House.
Sunday, October 14: TM Krishna (location: Logan Center)
• 2 pm – pre-concert talk with TM Krishna and Anna Schultz
• 3 pm – TM Krishna performance: “A Classical Protest”
