Shankar Tucker

Fabulous music! By this 24-year-old American clarinet player, Shankar Tucker, who's been experimenting with Carnatic Classical music, among very many other things. I especially loved "Nee Nenaindal" and "Lemon Grass".
Listen to his pieces here:
"He's been playing the clarinet for 14 years, but thinks in ragas instead of chords. And, not surprisingly, his YouTube channel, TheShrutiBox, has gone viral — his music videos (original compositions and covers) have amassed over eight lakh views in just two months."

"While his mastery over the clarinet can't be doubted, he can play tabla, guitar, kanjira and an eclectic mix of eastern and western instruments. He magnificently blends the essence of jazz, pop, Indian classical to create seamless fusion."
