From The Editors
This issue of Sruti Notes comes to you at the end of a busy spring concert season. In this newsletter, you will find reviews of the three recent concerts including two music and one dance performance. We would like to thank the contributors, namely Kamakshi Mallikarjun, Praba Subramaniam and Chidambaram Narayanan, who readily produced detailed and critical reviews of the various concerts. The debate on the role of saahithyam in Carnatic music continues with yet another letter to the Editors on this topic by Rasikan! In honor of the well known Carnatic music vocalist, Musiri Subramaniya Iyer, we have included a brief excerpt on the musician from Sruti magazine. In addition, you will find our regular features including a note from the President, community news and a list of Sruti Tapes available for sale.
We are now getting ready for our annual Sruti Ranjani publication scheduled for November 1999. We look forward to receiving interesting articles, quizzes, anecdotes etc., related to Indian classical music and dance, from both the young and not so young. Please do send us your contributions.
