Studio Grand welcomes Gautam Tejas Ganeshan and his ensemble for a night of new music largely influenced by Carnatic music along with inspiration from a variety of musical genres.
Gautam Tejas Ganeshan writes and sings music that reflects a tradition of intricate song forms, elaborate vocal improvisations, and utmost sincerity of expression. Taking their inspiration primarily from Carnatic music, but additionally from three decades of open ears in many places, Gautam's songs offer listeners a fresh experience of lyricism and immediacy, and his performances give an intensely personal glimpse into the continued development of a valuable and highly cultured musical heritage. He has performed widely in the SF Bay Area since 2004, including at the SFMOMA, Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive, SFJAZZ, Palace of Fine Arts, Yoshi’s, Freight & Salvage, Brick & Mortar, and more.
