The theme requires each evening’s main artiste who will perform for this fest ( they are all young) to focus on a maestro of Carnatic music who had relatively less time in the spotlight in his or her music career in the past. Artistes like Calcutta Krishnamurthy, Trivandrum Venkatraman and Manakkal Rangarajan.
The concerts are being held at Arkay Centre in Luz, which is one of the popular destinations for Carnatic music rasikas.
Rasikas are not allowed at the venue due to pandemic time regulations.
They are web cast free from 6.15 p.m. The fest is on till Oct.3. Concerts can be watched on the Facebook pages of Carnatica or Arkay Convention Centre and on Arkay’s Youtube channel too.
