About the Performance
Continuing the momentum of their popular concert offerings at Fotografiska, Brooklyn Raga Massive presents violin Virtuoso Ambi Subramanian.
Hailed as “the new king of Indian classical violin” by The Times of India and “India’s Itzhak Pearlmann” by Ozy Magazine, Ambi Subramaniam was trained by his father and guru Dr. L. Subramaniam since he was three years old, and gave his first performance at the age of seven. He has received awards and recognitions including the Ritz Icon of the Year Award, the Rotary Youth Award, and two Global Indian Music Awards. He was also awarded a ‘Golden Violin’ from Sri Jayendra Saraswati when he was 18.
Along with his sister Bindu Subramaniam, Ambi runs the SaPa in Schools program, which teaches music to over 30,000 students across the world. He also co-hosts The SaPa Show on Sankara TV, which teaches global music to young children.
Ambi is a youth delegate at the United Nations for the Sri Chinmoy Peace Meditation group.
