IPOH: Some 100 guests attended a carnatic violin performance entitled Geethanjali held at the state secretariat building here recently.
The event was organised by the Greentown Indian Cultural Society Ipoh (GICS). The one-hour show was performed by S. Sriram and friends, who played classical Indian music.
Group leader, Sriram, 29, a production engineer, hails from Kuala Lumpur.
He played the violin while his two accompanying friends were K. Darmenthiran (lead percussion) and K. Karthik (sub-percussion).
Darmenthiran, 25, is an undergraduate who plays the hand drum mridangam while Karthik, 29, an IT consultant, plays the claypot drum or ghatam.
Show organising chairman S. Subain said the event was aimed at promoting Indian classical arts.
"The society will be starting a violin and vocal classes via Skype soon," he said. In addition, the GICS will also be organising "An Evening of Indian Classical Dance" at the same venue on June 1 from 8 pm onwards.
