The Sound of Southern India


Young and upcoming vocal artiste from Chennai (India) Sikkil Gurucharan is about to showcase a glimpse of one of India's two mainstream classical systems, Carnatic music, originating from south India. This will be the first of a kind event in Slovenia.
Renowned for its balance between melody and rhythm, colourful lyrics and blending of compositions with improvisation, the musical system is considered to be one of the most complex in the world. Originating nearly 3000 year into the past, it represents a rich cultural heritage of south India and is as such the essence of its spirituality.
Sikkil Gurucharan is currently among the foremost young performing musicians in India today. Heiling from a family of internationally acclaimed musicians, the vocalist was prompted to take up this art at a very early age. In a span of close to 13 years, Gurucharan has performed extensively in India and abroad. Blessed with a pleasant voice and disposition, Gurucharan is making waves in carnatic music world with his varied repertoire in concerts (Indian express), which is more than good reason to hear him live in October. He will be accompanied by Chidambaram Narayanan on mridangam (south-indian percussion instrument).
The concert is organized by Slovenia-based Institute for Vedic Culture, Gopuram, which was established to bring awareness and educate in the field of Vedic culture. The partner of the event is The Embassy of India, Ljubljana.
