South Asia Initiative Presents: “Temple Nagaswaram” Film Screening and Discussion


Join filmmaker Soudhamini Narayanan and UC San Diego Music Professor Kartik Seshadri, for a viewing and discussion on “Temple Nagaswaram,” a Dec. 2013 film on a musical instrument used in South Indian temples as part of the ritual worship. Even the making of the instrument has its own myths and rituals.

Musically too, the Nagaswaram tradition is the forerunner of the entire classical—Carnatic—music tradition of South India. Used in a ritual context in temples, it creates an interesting understanding of the intimate relation between space and sound.
