-Malini Hariharan, Programming All about Shankar Tucker
Artist Main Artist: Shankar Tucker The ShrutiBox is the title of an ongoing series of internet music videos composed, recorded, performed and directed by the young american clarinetist and composer Shankar Tucker. The videos have created great excitement recently, garnering over 2 million views and 40,000 fans in only a few months. The series has been featured on the front page of YouTube, MTV India, and numerous publications.
As a clarinetist, Shankar has shared the stage with such legendary artists as Zakir Hussain and Hariprasad Chaurasia, and recorded for music director Pritam Chakraborty. Shankar blends Classical Indian music, jazz and popular music to create an original fusion both in solo recordings and with some of the most talented and accomplished young Carnatic and Hindustani vocalists and instrumentalists, including Vidya and Vandana Iyer, Nirali Kartik, Mahesh Vinayakram, B. Sree Sundarkumar, and others.
Shankar himself plays a wide range of instruments in his recordings: piano, bass, kanjira, tabla, and other percussion instruments. He started to learn classical clarinet at age 10, and earned a scholarship to the New England Conservatory from an appearance on From the Top, the nationally syndicated youth radio show.
He became deeply interested in improvisation, both in jazz and classical Indian music while he continued to study and perform Western classical music at such venues as Symphony Hall and Jordan Hall in Boston. At the Conservatory he studied with Tom Martin of the Boston Symphony Orchestra while the sitar player Peter Row taught him the fundamentals of Indian classical performance. More than anything else, Shankar wanted to study classical Indian music at its source in India, and on graduating from the Conservatory he was awarded a grant by the Frank Huntingdon Beebe Fund to pursue his ambition to adapt the clarinet to Indian classical performance.
