Abhishek Raghuram, Purdue Convocations
Sunday, November 10 – 3:00 pm
Fowler Hall
Hailing from southern India, Abhishek Raghuram (ah-BEE-shake ra-GOO-ram) is a leading vocalist in the Carnatic music tradition of southern India. Long ago, Indian classical music split into two major divisions along geographic lines, with the north being more closely related to the music of Persia while music of the south became among the most rhythmically complex musical forms in the world. Raghuram, a child prodigy in a legendary musical family, took up the quintessential two-headed drum known as the mridangam and began winning accolades as early as age 7. Just two years later, awards for vocal performance began to follow, and his reputation has grown rapidly ever since. More Information
