Sowmya_SD_flyer_May_2017

I’m super excited for this program – it’s been my dream to play for Smt. Sowmya, especially since I’ve been listening to her concerts regularly since the 90’s. I have heard her concerts with my guru while sitting stage-side at the Madras Music Academy, no less.

Smt. Sowmya is one of my favorite artists; she presents a rare intellectual approach to music that is also purely classical. This is something that is sorely lacking in a lot of concerts by other artists nowadays, which are very flashy with a lot of “gimmicks” and little real substance.
