Gautam Tejas Ganeshan's authentic voice and intelligent approach breathe new life into an old tradition. Delivered in chamber ensembles, his concerts reflect a traditional aesthetic, transforming a highly cultured musical heritage through the creation of an ongoing body of original works based in love and understanding of Carnatic music - its elaborate structures, extensive improvisations, and the utmost sincerity that distinguishes its greatest practitioners. His performances express authenticity more than ethnicity, immediacy more than nostalgia, and allow listeners the unprecedented experience of having a natural linguistic purchase on the complex song forms of a rich oral tradition.
