Grammy nominated for her album Miles from India, and recognized as one of the 50 best instrumentalists of the world by Songlines magazine, Kala Ramnath was born into a family of prodigious musical talent, including violin legends Prof. T.N. Krishnan and Dr. N. Rajam. Kala’s genius manifested during childhood. But as a disciple of the legendary vocalist Pandit Jasraj, she learned to produce a sound so unique, evocative and akin to classical Indian vocal music that today her instrument is called “The Singing Violin.”
Kala has performed at all the major music festivals in India, as well the Sydney Opera House, London’s Queen Elizabeth Hall and New York’s Carnegie Hall. She incorporates elements of western classical, jazz, flamenco and traditional African music into her rich and varied repertoire.
This show is one of three curated by Terry Riley in honor of his birthday.
