The Baroque-Carnatic Connection’ is a cross-cultural exploration of the commonalities and distinct flavors of Western baroque and South Indian classical music and dance traditions.
A vibrant and interactive live musical conversation between world-class Carnatic and baroque musicians provides an unique auditory experience, with a striking visual dimension added by professional South Indian classical ( Bharatanatyam) and Baroque dance ensembles, embellished by period costumes and jewelry.
Join us in this unique artistic conversation bridging eastern and western classical dance and music from the Baroque era!
