Brhaddhvani ?

BRHADDHVANI (meaning “Big or Universal Sound”) is a non-profit organization based in Chennai, a research and training centre for musics of the world, founded in 1989 by Prof. Karaikudi Sambasiva Iyer Subramanian.

The institute opens up music to everyone and works towards a holistic music education in a global context, combining art and science, tradition and technology.

BRHADDHVANI combines the best of the Indian traditional GURUKULA (Student living with the master and learning through service) system of music learning, and a well structured INSTITUTIONAL system contemporizing learning methods in SOUTH INDIAN CARNATIC MUSIC. In the process a new gateway to the exciting world of music opens up to a student of music.

The backdrop of the contribution of this institution to the world of music is the pioneering research work of Prof. Karaikudi Sambasiva Iyer Subramanian (born: 1944) who belongs to the 9th generation in the illustrious family of vina players (Karaikudi Veenai Sambasiva Iyer-1888-1957 was a national celebrity) who were temple and court musicians from the late 18th century.

Karaikudi Subramanian holds a doctoral degree in Ethnomusicology from Wesleyan University, USA (1985).


The COMET program of Brhaddhvani is Dr. Karaikudi Subramanian’s researched contribution for the music students all over the world, including all the vital Carnatic traditional components with a teaching, learning and performance experience spanning 40 years and more in India and around the world.

Happily, as he wished, students, scholars, educationists within India and around the world have already incorporated the ideas in the music curriculum and teaching in their home environment as well as in organized institutions……..To read more click here.
