Priya Purushothaman is a part of the new international vanguard of young and diverse Hindustani vocalists. A disciple of Bangalore-based vocalist Smt Aditi Kaikini Upadhya, Priya has had the rare privilege of training in the gurukul style.

Priya has performed at noted venues in India, Europe and the United States, including the National Centre for Performing Arts, Mumbai, the Carnegie Hall Neighborhood Concert Series, and the Chhandayan Center for Indian Music, New York, to name a few.

Before studying Hindustani Raagsangeet, Priya trained extensively in both Carnatic vocal music and Western classical violin for thirteen years, giving her a diverse and strong musical foundation.

**Priya Purushothaman will be performing as part of Different Trains 1947.**

"It is paradoxical, yet true, to say, that the more we know, the more ignorant we become in the absolute sense, for it is only through enlightenment that we become conscious of our limitations. Precisely one of the most gratifying results of intellectual evolution is the continuous opening up of new and greater prospects." - Nikola Tesla
