Shruthi Viswanath

Musician, composer and educator

Shruthi Vishwanath is a musician, composer and educator. Trained extensively in Carnatic music, her quest for a music that was more true to her led her to the works of Kabir, and allied mystic poets. She now explores the intersections of classical and folk, intellectual and visceral by singing the works of poets from across the subcontinent in different forms of music. Her interpretations of abhangs have resulted in several new revivals of unknown works, especially of women saints. Shruthi has performed at venues and festivals across India and abroad. Some key performances include the Kabir Festival of Mumbai, Malwa Kabir Yatra, NCPA, India Habitat Centre, and Raga Forum for Indian Music Vienna.
