Carnatic Music Demonstration on FOX 26’s Asian Connection

Posted: Updated:

Classical Indian Vocalist Prema Bhat talks to FOX 26's Rita Garcia about the unique elements of Carnatic music, which originated in South India in Vedic times. 

 Playing a stringed instrument known as a Tanpura, Bhat performs a sample of an early morning raga.  Says Bhat, "Our ancestors believed that if you sing or play certain ragas at certain times, it balances everything in nature."

 Bhat will offer a performance and lecture on South Indian Classical Music at The Jung Center on July 25 at 7:00 p.m.
