Introduction to the Classical Music of South India - February 13, 2020

David Schonfeld, one of our club members, studied South Indian (aka Karnatak/Carnatic) music in his youth. Today he will offer a YouTube-based introduction to the classical music of South India.

This exploration, while focusing strictly on classical music, will take us farther away geographically than we usually venture in our explorations. Expect to be informed and entertained!
