The program was a part of 3 day festival to commomorate ArAdhana of purandara dAsa, kanaka dAsa and tyAgaraja. This was the 10th year and hence the organisers wanted to have a grand finale to the festival. There cannot be a better choice than Sanjay to do the honours.

Expcted to be a short affair…

2013 Feb 09 Vishaka Hari CharulathaRamanujam HSSudhindra SukanyaRamgopal

Musical discourse on Srirangam Vaibhavam.

I have never attempted writing a review of harikatha. Certainly one thing that I appreciate in Visaka Hari discourse is the explanation of circumstances under which a song was composed and the meanings associated with each sangathi in pallavi / anupallavi / charaNa. Gives me a better understanding of the krithi itself.

Bombay Jayashree presented a neat concert at RLKM. Over the years she has developed a successful formula about her concert planning, song list so that rasikas get a balanced concert.
As usual she started with a brisk opening number "vallabha nAyakasya" in bEgaDa with a short sketch of raga. Moved to darbAr, "mundu vEnuka" …

Had heard about the artist edurition, but was never a witness to it. Even though a poorly attended cocnert ( I always crib that Bangalore Gayana Samaja never markets its monthly concert .. and this one was no different !) the delivery was impeccable !

First concert for me in 2013, it was a good start with 3 hrs of bliss from the sisters. Highly energetic concert highlighted by their experience of various top grade vocalists, the kalpana swaras were free flowing throughout their performance.

Will look forward for their next performance in Bangalore
