Semi-protected edit request on 22 October 2018[edit]

Hi, I was going through the article and found that in "Origins, sources and history" section, there's a reference to Yajnavalkya Smriti. I think if the quotation includes, along with the existing transliteration and translation, the Devanagari script, would be more informative.

वीणावादन तत्त्वज्ञः श्रुतीजातिविशारदः ताळज्ञश्चाप्रयासेन मोक्षमार्गं नियच्छति

Please ignore if this was intentionally left behind.

After this paragraph below:

Carnatic music is usually performed by a small ensemble of musicians, consisting of a principal performer (usually a vocalist), a melodic accompaniment (usually a violin), a rhythm accompaniment (usually a mridangam), and a tambura, which acts as a drone throughout the performance. Other typical instruments used in performances may include the ghatam, kanjira, morsing, venu flute, veena, and chitraveena. The greatest concentration of Carnatic musicians is to be found in the city of Chennai.[3] Various Carnatic music festivals are held throughout India and abroad, including the Madras Music Season, which has been considered to be one of the world's largest cultural events.[4][5]

Requesting if you can add these lines below:

On April 7, 2019, a Chennai-based stand up comedian and carnatic music enthusiast Balaji Vijayaraghavan introduced the culture of open mics exclusively for carnatic musicians. This initiative was widely welcomed by few prominent musicians and enthusiasts from across the globe.
