Dubbed a "local treasure" by SF Classical Voice, and "a magnet for local Indian classical musicians" by the SF Chronicle, Gautam Tejas Ganeshan sings classical Carnatic music with distinction, innovation, and an inimitable personal style. He has galvanized the local scene, his compelling musicality and unique approach enabling him to inflect a tradition through himself so that listeners feel it speaks directly to them, and that its subtle beauty has grown new roots. Gautam's music expresses authenticity more than ethnicity, immediacy more than nostalgia - it is "new music from an old tradition" (SFJAZZ Festival), representing the "ecstatic edge of contemporary Indian classical music" (SF International Arts Festival).

Gautam is also the founder and director of the Sangati Center, which has hosted more than 350 public chamber concerts of Indian classical music in the past six years. Sangati Center concerts are distinguished by being presented strictly acoustically, with nothing amplified or plugged in, and with humans rather than electricity being responsible for the sound - recalling an age-old approach in where musicianship retains the focus in lieu of elaborate production. The Sangati Center has earned support from the National Endowment for the Arts, Alliance for California Traditional Arts, William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, Zellerbach Family Foundation, San Francisco Foundation, and others, as well as the goodwill of thousands of listeners and musicians local and abroad.

Duration: 2 ½ hours
