M. S. Subbulakshmi
M. S. Subbulakshmi, legendary Indian carnatic vocalist, will be honoured at the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) on India’s 70th Independence Day (August 15, 2016). To pay homage to Subbulakshmi’s birth centenary, Oscar-winning composer A.R. Rahman will perform at UNGA in New York, United States. With this, Rahman will become only the 2nd Indian artist after Subbulakshmi to perform at the UN after she was invited for a performance 50 years ago. The concert will be organized by the Indian mission in co-ordination with Chennai-based Sankara Nethralaya, a not-for-profit eye institution, at the UNGA.
