Margazhi Mahotsav ventures from ‘sabha’s into ‘kuppam’s

Chennai: Margazhi Mahotsav, the world’s largest festival of Carnatic music, traditionally finds the city’s auditoriums packed to capacity. In a radical shift from the confines of ‘sabhas,’ vocalist T M Krishna aims to take art to new audiences and different environments, by staging performances in ‘kuppam’ {slums}. Termed ‘Urur Olcott Margazhi Vizha,’ it was held in the plebian surroundings of Besant Nagar. Monali Bala tells how the same venue will host by turns, folk songs-n-music, classical music and Bharathanatyam, in the true spirit of artistic egalitarianism. Personalities like Goplalkrishna Gandhi and Dr. M S Swaminathan too attended.
