T.M. Krishna is one of the pre-eminent vocalists in the rigorous Carnatic tradition of India's classical music. He has come to occupy a distinct place in the Carnatic universe for the stunning individuality of his renditions. 

The recipient of multiple awards in recognition of his commitment to issues of social justice, over the last twenty-five years of his journey through music, T.M. Krishna has become both an acclaimed vocalist and a social commentator with a voice for the under-privileged and over-exploited.

For the first time in over 10 years in the Greater Toronto Area, come and listen to 2024's Sangita Kalanidhi Designate T.M. Krishna, one of the pre-eminent vocalists in the rigorous Carnatic tradition of India's classical music. His tutelage is in a musical form that originated in the southern peninsula of the subcontinent nearly five hundred years ago. He has performed solo in multiple prestigious venues worldwide and has collaborated on stage with creative artists across fields of music, dance, theatre, and poetry  – representing both Indian and non-Indian traditions.  His concert stage, whether in his hometown of Chennai or anywhere else in the world, is wholly classical but his concert practice is uncompromisingly his own. T.M. Krishna is also a prolific writer and columnist.
