Narmadha Gopalakrishnan, Violin Virtuoso

Herrick Chapel at Occidental College

1600 Campus Road, Los Angeles (Eagle Rock). CA, CA 90041

6:00pm

Dr. M.Narmadha is an Indian violinist in both the Carnatic and Hindustani traditions. An excellent example of legacy passed on, she is the daughter of the honored violinist, M.S. Gopalakrishnan and vocalist, Smt. Meenakshi Gopalakrishnan, and granddaughter of Parur A. Sundaram Iyer. She began her formal musical training at the age of four with her grandfather. In her performance in the Carnatic style, she conveys a smooth but silky texture, along with distinctive dashing strokes and gliding flourishes of sound from her instrument. Then, she may demonstrate a strong flair for importing attractive northern colors from the Hindustani tradition. Vocal training from her mother further refined the duality of the traditions. Today, as a violinist, vocalist and musicologist, she holds a doctorate in music from Delhi University and has become master in both North and South Indian styles. Having performed more than 6000 concerts as a soloist and accompanist, she is widely acclaimed in both India and abroad. In a rare concert featuring both styles, Narmadha will perform for the Music Circle, dividing the evening by separately demonstrating the Carnatic style accompanied by Vinod Venkataraman on mridangam, and the Hindustani style accompanied by Debasish Chaudhuri on tabla.
