Classically trained Karnatak vocalist Archana Bennur will perform this traditional style of Asian Indian music Sunday, Sept. 26, 7 p.m., in the San Juan Island Library.
Born into a family of classical musicians, Bennur has performed all over the world and is traveling the Pacific Northwest to educate others about this style of traditional music from India. Karnatak music evolved from ancient Hindu traditions, and most compositions have been written specifically to be sung.
