This year’s festival will present several stalwarts of Classical music from India including the renowned Hindustani vocalist Begum Parveen Sultana, Carnatic vocalist Vidushi Sudha Raghunathan and the renowned Dhrupad exponents, the Gundecha brothers and the violinist sibling pair Lalgudi GJR Krishnan and Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi among other illustrious performers. A series of lecture demonstrations on Indian Classical Music will be held at multiple venues in Boston and Cambridge in the week preceding the music festival.

The 2019 Learnquest Music festival artist lineup includes established musicians as well as upcoming talent in the Hindustani and Carnatic traditions.
