It was yet another masterly concert by Dr K J Yesudas.. Stearted 3 mins well before time (as compared to another recent young guns concert !) and went on toll 9.30.

Full house (is my estimate correct - the pendal accomodates 4000+ people ?) and a standing ovation was the hallmark of the concert.

02 kalyani RTP and tani
03 venkatachala nilayam Sindhubhairavi 
ragamalika in sindhubhairavi kApi amrithavarshiNi and back to sindhubhairavi


Disappointed with the poor professional approach shown by the team lead by our Bangalore Boy !! Started at 7.00 and ended at 9.15. Good loss of 45 mins of music lost (including 10 - 15 mins of setup time ) and and excuse about Bangalore traffic !!

While a good number of audience coming from all around Bangalore could beat the same Bangalore traffic ... why not the artists ?

Organisers could have managed the floor well... for a complete 3 hr concert.
