Dr. L. Subramaniam, known as “the god of Indian violin,” has performed in venues all over the world, from Singapore to Paris and from Delhi to Los Angeles. On September 11, 2017 he performed in Georgetown University’s historic Gaston Hall at a concert sponsored by the Georgetown University India Initiative and the Embassy of India.
A child prodigy, Dr. Subramaniam trained with the greatest musicians until he became a master of the violin. Today, he has produced, performed, collaborated, and conducted nearly 200 recordings and is one of the only musicians to have mastered South Indian and Western classical musical technique and style. He has also composed and conducted major orchestras, scored films including Salaam Bombay and Mississippi Masala, and collaborated with a wide range of musicians from genres including jazz, occidental, and jugalbandhi.
The India Initiative is committed to bringing India to Georgetown and promoting cultural diplomacy between India and the United States. Dr. L. Subramaniam’s unique and innovative style celebrates the intersection of Indian musical tradition and Western influence.
This event was co-sponsored by the Georgetown University India Initiative and the Embassy of India.
Dr. L. Subramaniam is an acclaimed Indian violinist, composer, and conductor trained in classical Carnatic musical tradition as well as Western classical music.
