28th and 29th November 2016
Amsterdam Blue Note
Conservatorium van Amsterdam
In the seminars on 28 and 29 November, Dr. Mysore Manjunath (violin) and B.C. Manjunath (percussion) explained key principles of Karnatic music as well as concepts, phrases and talas that they used in their concert on the 29 November. They also proposed practical exercises for the students.
The first part of the double-bill concert featured pieces of the programme Contemporary music through non-western techniques, created and performed by students. In the second part the two Karnatic musicians performed new pieces using constant crossing accents, polyrhythms and polypulses. Unusual and complex talas were the trademark of the concert.
