Madhumitha Sowndararajan

I started learning Jaltarang, a rare indian art form, when I was 13 years old. This instrument is played with porcelain bowls and chopsticks, with each bowl holding precise amount of water to depict a musical note. I have given several stage performances with this instrument in India and in the US. While I traditionally learned to play this instrument in Indian classical music style, in the recent years , I have tried to adapt this instrument to Jazz, Blues and Pop. In a recent musical collaboration I did as a dedication for UN’s water day in March 2021, I was featured in UN’s page for my original composition. Here is the youtube link –
