Netzwerk Konnakol Deutschland: - was initially started by Master of Mridangam Anushaant N. Wijayan and contemporary composer & mediaartist Johannes Winkler - together with further artists, musicians, and researchers with different cultural and aesthetic backgrounds (carnaticmusic, contemporary music, jazz, speech-therapy ) in 2018. Each of us is deeply experienced and creative in his field. Together we are teaching, researching, composing and building up 'Netzwerk Konnakol Deutschland' - also based around the network of Tamil Culture Fine Arts Academy Germany in Essen, Ruhr (since 2017). In order to make the profound potential of carnatic-rhythm transfers more transparent to german students and academics, we are recently (2021) extending our team with further interprets from various backgrounds (contemporary music, classical, jazz).
