Rare duet between flautist and folk musicians at classical Indian arts festival in Singapore


(Picture taken during the sound check at The Esplanade, Singapore)

By Eileen Tay


Indian music fans can catch a rare duet featuring renowned classical flautist Shashank Subramanyam from South India and the Manganiyar folk musicians from the Rajasthan deserts in the North next Saturday.

This collaboration is one of the headline acts in the 11th edition of the Singapore Indian Fine Arts Society's Festival Of Indian Classical Music And Dance.

Dr Vimala Selvadurai, 70, member of the festival organising committee says: "Normally we try to have a duet between Northern and Southern classical music. This particular combination of folk musicians and flute has never been heard before in Singapore."

The item, Sammilan - Spirit of Krishna, is inspired by the Hindu deity Krishna, who is traditionally depicted with a flute. This will be one of the four main concerts in this year's festival, held at the Esplanade.
