Krisna, who separated from Margazhi's time in December in Chennai, began in 2016 his own Carnatic classical music festival, Uroor-Olcott Kuppam Marghazi Vizha, in an effort to "push the caste elite out of the existing cartoon musician system". During Indian expressionAdda, in January 2018, Krishna stated that his decision to challenge the social class came when he began to question the world of music, which from "concentric circles is spreading to bigger issues of society, politics, culture, music and aesthetics. "
He added, "I come from every privilege … caste privilege, gender privilege, financial privilege, and a certain kind of English-speaking privilege. Kaste is not something I have been dealing with. The more I submerge myself in art, the questions of history began to come. Questions of beauty, sophistication and these questions started to bother me. You will soon ask questions about power structures and society. I walked over the caste. And it struck me on my face that all the mumbo jumbo about the experience of art does not mean anything unless I really come face to face with who I am. I take my own voice and the voice of my community and challenge it as hard as possible. "
Krishna's performance in the national capital in November 2018 is reportedly canceled due to a right-handed campaign. It will take place during the two-day festival "Dance and music in the park" at Nehru Park, Chanakyapuri, jointly organized by the Airport Authority of India (AAI) and SPIC-MACAY. However, the AAL stated that it was unable to proceed with it because of "certain labor requirements". The tweet of the event, which was published by Krishna, had triggered the troops targeting the government to use public funds to sponsor an artist who sings about "Jesus and Allah" and his "anti-India."
In 2016, Krishna was honored with the Ramon Magsaysay Award. He was recognized for his "strong commitment as an artist and for the defense of the power of art to heal India's deep social divisions by breaking the caste and class barriers to unleash the music it offers not only to some but to all." The Tata Literature Prize for the first non-fiction book in 2014, the Indira Gandhi Prize for the National Inclusion Prize in 2017 and the Professor V Aravindakshan's Memorial Prize in 2017.
