Sangita Kalanidhi-elect Sanjay Subrahmanyan on the makings of a Carnatic musician, pdf attached

Sanjay Subrahmanyan, 47, is one of the youngest Carnatic musicians to be conferred the honour and title of Sangita Kalanidhi by The Music Academy Madras. In his acceptance speech after he was elected to preside over the 89th Annual Conference & Concerts of the Academy, the acclaimed vocalist speaks of his own social background and career as a professional musician. He then offers rare insights into what goes into the making of a Carnatic musician, what stages of development he or she must necessarily go through, the importance of interacting with, and learning from, masters of the art, and the need to adapt to changing times, and especially the digital age. A must-read for anyone interested in Indian classical music.
