'Ghatam' Karthick on Madras

The unique rhythm of Madras is blend of the classical and contemporary, the devotional and the raucus, says S. Karthick, Ghatam exponent. With Karthick dishing out a special segment on expletives and a rapid rhythm cycle on the ghatam, V. Ganesan of The Hindu got an earful. Read the story here -

Ghatam Kartick is wrong to say that a carnatic musician needs to be accepted in Chennai before they are appreciated elsewhere.

This guy seems to have puerile and narrow attitude to people who like Carnatic Music
