Sruti Magazine

Sruti Magazine
     Sruti is India's leading monthly devoted to Indian classical music and dance and theatre. The target audience of Sruti comprises several groups. These include lay music and lay dance enthusiasts, connoisseurs, musicians, dancers, teachers, scholars and students of the fine arts, institutions and organisations active in the field and officials of Government agencies concerned with the arts.
     
     Featuring Carnatic music doyenne D K Pattammal and child prodigy Mandolin U Srinivas on its inaugural cover in October 1983, the magazine created quite a stir in artistic circles. It was without a parallel in English magazines then—or perhaps even now. That cover page spoke volumes about the magazine's twin objectives of preserving tradition and encouraging innovation, something Sruti has assiduously pursued ever since. Many customs that have today come to be recognised as established best practices in the performing arts especially in south India have been the result of Sruti's systematic campaigns in favour of good taste, decorum and performance excellence. Among its early triumphs was the restoration of the importance of ragam-tanam-pallavi, which had become conspicuous by its absence on the concert platform.
     
     For over two decades, Sruti has constantly practised what it preaches—adherence to high standards of authenticity, objectivity, sophisticated writing based on thorough research, and a healthy respect for individuals and institutions, balanced by an equally healthy irreverence towards holy cows. Sruti is not an academic journal, even though it carries scholarly and technical articles from time to time.
