About Swarna Khuntia

I am Dr.Swarna Khuntia , Assistant Professor in Violin , working atBanaras Hindu University, Varanasi, India. Today  I am going to discuss Hindustani Classical Violin Playing.Well I would like to say its totally different from the way what a Western Violinist play.Different right from the holding of Instrument ,the Posture,the  Sitting Position, the Playing Techniques and of course the music also  etc. But surprisingly The Indian way of Violin playing has attended the state of high level Proficiency as far as playing techniques are concerned. Some Stalwart Musicians who has contributed to this style are Ustad Baba Allaudin Khan, Pt.V.G.Jog,Padmabhusan Dr. Smt. N.Rajam, Sishir Kana Dahar Choudhury , Pandit D.K.Datar, Smt. Kala Ramnath,Dr.Sangeeta Shankar and a few young talents.

Just to give an idea to my reader I would like to give a link from you tube where My Mentor and teacher  Padmabhusan Dr. Smt. N.Rajam plays a Morning Melody in raga Todi  in  this style and I would like to add here that she is the Pioneer of this Gayaki Ang ( The Vocal Style of violin Playing) in which she has innovated a very commendable technique to play violin as close to the Vocal Music.Tabla Accompaniment is done by Sri.Ram Kumar Mishra who is a young talented Tabla player belongs to Banaras Gharana.
