Where: Mary Duke Biddle Music Building, Lower Lobby, East Campus (click here for directions and parking information)

Is a truly ancient tradition capable of being modern in application? Can it allow interpretation and creativity within its long-established, set parameters?

Carnatic music does just that and more! Vijayalakshmy Subramaniam is one of the leading exponents of the Carnatic genre of South Indian Classical Music.

Come find out about what has been called an “absolutely scientific and aesthetic” genre of music—a genre that encourages every artist to create anew and give something of herself in every performance.

Rare Music is co-sponsored by the Duke University Musical Instrument Collections (DUMIC) and the Duke University Libraries, with additional support from the Vice Provost for the Arts, the Carrabina Endowment, Friends of DUMIC, High Strung Violins & Guitars, Ruggero Piano, and VoChor Incorporated.
