World Music

South Indian vocalist Sikkil Gurucharan will perform on Sunday, April 29 at 7:00 p.m. He will be accompanied by Sanjeev Venkataraman on violin and R. Sankaranarayanan on mridangam. This concert is co-sponsored by Sacramento Aradhana.

Sikkil Gurucharan is among the foremost young performing musicians of Carnatic music in India today. Sikkil Gurucharan's first concert was held at the Music Academy in Chennai, under the aegis of the Gnanaskandan Trust in 1994. From that time, he decided to devote himself to Carnatic music as a full-time professional.

In a span of close to 13 years, Gurucharan has performed extensively in India and abroad, spanning prestigious venues such as the Music Academy (Chennai), Sri Shanmukhananda Sabha (Mumbai), Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay (Singapore), Riverside Theatres (Sydney), Korean Arts Management Centre (Seoul), the Sangeet Natak Akademi (New Delhi), Chowdiah Memorial Hall (Bangalore) and also at popular festivals like the Tyagaraja Aradhana (Tiruvaiyaru), Cleveland Thyagaraja Aradhana (USA), Rabindra Utsav (Kolkata), to name a few. A multiple award winner, Gurucharan is an ‘A’ grade All India Radio artist, and is the grandson of Sikkil Kunjumani, internationally acclaimed flutist of the Sikkil Sisters.
