Segerstrom Center Presents award-winning vocalist Aditya Prakash
Award-winning vocalist Aditya Prakash will return to Segerstrom Center for the Arts on July 31, 2022, bringing his unique musical and cultural emulsion to the Samueli stage. Known for his powerful and emotive voice, Prakash’s 20 + years of learning and performing music has marked him as one of the foremost young virtuosos of Karnatik music, the traditional style of South India.
Joined by Kamalakiran Vinjamuri on violin and Rajna Swaminathan on mridangam, his concert will feature traditional repertoire, as it is practiced today, as well completely improvised sections and his own crafted arrangements, something not commonly done in Karnatik music.
This traditional style of music is about abstracting emotion through raga (melody), tala (rhythm), and Sahitya (lyrics, both linguistic and non-linguistic). It is not a prerequisite to know or study the art form to appreciate it. All that is required is an open mind and heart to receive the sound.

They are available online at SCFTA.org, at the Box Office at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa, or by calling (714) 556-2787.
