T. M. Krishna, the radical voice of Carnatic Music hails from a Tamil Brahmin family and conquered the field of southern classical music through his most powerful voice and the most revolutionary thoughts. The postmodern ideas of plurality and multiplicity that T. M. Krishna spread shocked the upper elite who are deemed as the traditional custodians of classical art forms. As a public intellectual, he speaks and writes about weighty issues concerning culture in particular and human condition in general. He is the driving force behind many cultural festivals and initiatives like the Chennai Purambokke Paadal. T. M. Krishna has also authored several books which analyse Carnatic Music and culture from a very different angle and he continues to be the diva who makes divine connections between music and common man.
