CHENNAI: Kala Kruthi, the music wing of Kasturbha Nilayam, has joined the bandwagon of sabhas that rope in artistes who profess carnatic music, keeping up the tradition of the genre.

The wing, which is run by women for the past 18 years, aims to expose music lovers to the kind of music that is part of our culture and help it thrive. The event was inaugurated by S  Lakshmi, Deputy Commissioner of Police, Traffic, South. 

The event kicked off with a performance by Bombay sisters C Saroja and C Lalitha.

Rajamma, secretary, said that over the years, the sabha had extended the five-day fest to eight days. She said that while there were many sabhas in other parts of the city, when it came to the area around Egmore, theirs was the only one.

Shanti Raghavan, president, said that they had brought artistes from different backgrounds this years — be it vocal, violin, mridangam, ghatam and kanjira. Master Balamurali Krishna, V Deepa and SP Ram are a few big names who will perform. Other names include Madurai R Sundar, Lavanya Sundararaman and PV Parameswaran.

The music performances are on at Sankaralayam, 63, Mayor Ramanathan Road, Spurtank Road, Chetpet, till December 12.
