Do you ever wonder why live concerts are important, in particular, for your children? We approached and posed the question to two very eminent musicians that we know.
"What we attain by listening to music is unparalleled," says Sri. Delhi P Sunderrajan. "The guru teaches you the principles of a raaga and how it can be presented. Only when you listen to a concert do you get to know how these principles are implemented practically on stage."
Mridangam maestro Sri. Neyveli R Narayanan concurs. He believes that "techniques like fingering, posture, rare strokes, are all visible only in a live concert. Accompanying any artist is a challenge by itself, and listening to a variety of live concerts is key to understanding the dimensions and depth of music."
They were kind enough to record and share their thoughts in these videos posted on our blog. Many artistes who performed at HCMA also performed in India during the music season, winning recognition and accolades from the public. Hamsadhwani proudly makes such high-quality live concerts accessible to you.
Here's your chance to promote the local music community and encourage young artistes. For your convenience, donations can be made online or via mail, if not in person.
