Sanjay's most looked forward concert in the series was indeed a blockbuster concert of sorts. Sanjay's has a learning quotient which always interests me . This concert had a spread of trinity and contemporary composers. Sanjay has been one artist who has always been presenting a new composition in every concert I attend of his, and this was no different.

The gaNanAtha invocation through a varNa in gauLa hit many targets at once, A varNa, A ganapathi invocation and a new composition for this stage. 

Sanjay's flair for the Pallavi was demonstrated once again. His concerts are a matter of easy elegance in reality, a weave of knowledge, craft and vidwat. 

The second number started with a little breezy touch of sahAna. The presentation could not have been shorter than this. There were no embelishments on this composition.


The detailed presentation of shAntamu lEka in sAma did justice to the missing alapana. The all traversing swaras was pretty refreshing. The sway in the swaras was complimentd by gentle breeze wafting across the auditorium. Even the rain and Wind Gods wanted to be audience to this concert.


The first AlApane of the concert came through vasantha bhairavi, for me it was another first (it may also be for many as its a rare rAga to be taken up for AlApane). Though it was concise both vocalist and violinist had sufficient opportunity to do justice to this rAga. prasanna vEnkaTeshwram, a composition of muttuswAmi dIxitar did provide ample opportunity through brisk swaras to demostrate vid. VaradarAjan's dexterity on the instrument. The swaras of vasantha bhairavi were bit too short but I liked his ideas immensely.


Another detaliled AlApane in kEdAragaula preceded shyAmA shAstri's composition . parAkEla rendition was exceptionally well sung.

Third Alapane of the concert came in the form of chArukEshi.. It was ehanced and further emebllished to the version I heard in Mysore in his recent concert. The purandara dAsa composition "onde manadali" was well presented and was top class. The swaras followed up well - with a lot of alankara swaras.

While many artists pick a breezy numbers before the main, Sanjay did exactly the opposite. the husEni number was pretty refreshing. Sanjay is not know for slow numbers, but this was indeed presented in the right most tempo.

The main came in the form of kIravANiRTP. rAga was developed in stages during rAga AlApane. The tAna too took almost equal amount of time. rAga tAna was longer than chArukEshi presentation. Stagewise development also received staged applause at every transition. Audience thouroughly enjoyed the whole presentation. Of late, Sanjay has been singing simple tALa pallavis, however, today he selected a togher one in chaturaSra tipuTa khaNDa naDai (after 5 beats on the first anga eDupu). I may be wrong in the eDupu identification, however it was indeed a tricky one. 

NaDais were switched at the end of detailed nereval on the pallavi. Without venturing into rAgamAlika swaras, the concert drifted into a detailed tani. Both mridanga and khanjira vidwans presented their vidwat receiving applause at each transition. The hall too filled with loud tAla tapping by audience.

Post main all the tukkadas were exceptional . 

Varadarajan was as  solid , not much of contribution till the rAga Alapanes in  started . Neyveli Venkatesh was exceptionally - he is getting great nAda out of his instrument. Liked every touch of his inclusive of tani - he was giving more space to Sanjay by playing a right quota of tani. 

Overall an excellent concert for 3 hours and 40 mins 

Unfortunately, the hall was too small for Sanjay’s concert. Sanjay has come to a level and even if we arrange a concert in Palace Grounds, it will be full. The hall needs a makevoer both on seating and acoustics.There were many late comers who were listening from temporary plastic chair arrangements even till the end of concert shows the respect and interest they show to their beloved Sanjay.

It was indeed an evening well spent. The concert will keep ringing in the ears for a long time to come as President MRV Prasad said.

PS: The seasoned hearts of Bangalore too added their noise a bit thought cough and sneeze, who could not bear the change in the weekend weather in Bangalore.

2014 Sept 19 Rest in peace : U Srinivas



It is not often that someone gets to introduce a new instrument in Carnatic Music and yet be welcomed with open arms. His dexterity in demonstration of loooooooong gamaka in a single pluck is unparallelled and can never be replicated.

We need another  "You Srinivas" to replace "U Srinivas"

I fall on your feet and thank you for making me one among those blessed fans who chose to listen to music as passion. You have been an inspiration to millions and will continue to be so for centuries to come.

An Angel has left us. Hope God is with us to create many more U Srinivas.

It was a surprise for me when I saw this concert listing on the local news paper when I had travelled to my hometown to partake in the Ganesha Chaturthi celebrations. No second thoughts.. reserved the evening to once again spend with Sanjay.


Since this was the inaugural concert of the festival, was expecting a lot of VIPs to be attending the program and also delay the start. It indeed happened that way. It was raining all day long and I just prayed that it should not rain in the evening hours.


Program had a delayed start of 15 mins owing to wait for the chief guest to inaugurate. However since he did not turn up on time, it was magnanimity of the organisers to request Sanjay to start the concert.


Was expecting a full fledged Ganapathi thematic concert. However, the start with vanajAkshi varna indicated that it was not going to be that affair. Without much ado and improvisation, the composition was delivered.


Considering Sanjay's Varna and Main piece in same rAga format of cocnert, it started brewing a thought in my mind to think a Ganapathi song in KalyANi rAga.. though nothing flashed in my mind as I wanted to enjoy the moment and not brood over the future.


VinAyaka vighna nAshaka flowed in with a set of creative swara patterns. Added to that , it was an offbeat gaNEsha krithi that was presented instead of usual stuff in hamsadhwani. nannu kanna thalli in Sindhukannada was a quick filler.


AndhOlikA AlApane was pretty elaborate and was presented in leisurely fashion.. however the krithi was presented to its composed boundaries without any further elaborations into nereval / swaras.


chArukEshi Alapane set the foundation for a neat presentation of onde manadali krithi by purandara dAsa. Sanjay has been popularising this in recent times. swaras of chArukEshi was pretty refreshing.


After a very brief break for inauguration (Bangalore sabhas have to learn this... it was less than 5 mins !!) amba nilAmbari was presented in a sedate tempo. 


A brief Alapane of mOhana provided sufficient clue for a possible RTP, which is usually not a standard for temple concerts. kAdambari krithi by mm.dIkshitar was a neat replica of what he presented in Unnati a couple of weeks back.

song gradually drifted into a tani that was almost treated as a part of the composition than just standing out.

Both the percussion artists demonstrated high levels of vidwat in multi staged improvisation of tani. It was indeed scintillating presented in a detailed 20 mins demonstration. 

Without any filler, Sanjay broke into SimhEndramadhyama Alapane... It was 9.05 pm and I did not expect him to bat like a test batsman... starting off the alapane for RTP. It was developed in 2 stages before dwelling into a deep tAna. Pallavi in Adi tALa khanDa naDai was presented with utmost ease. This was indeed the surprise package for the evening.


The tail pieces included a composition in bAgEshri that was drifted directly from the last set of rAgamAlika swara of RTP. tilAng and khamAs songs filled the tail portion before mangala. The concert ended at 10.10 pm !! 


Sanjay throughout the concert demonstrated a high level energy and the Air Condition (due to incessant rain) did not drain his energy levels.


It was indeed another memorable concert, the first one for me in this sabha. It was a well attended concert by over 400+ audience amidst the predictions of heavy rain. 


A houseful 3.5 hrs concert could even be considered as a grand opening for a week long festival :)

The highlight of the concert was the masterclass from 2 masters on the stage on chArukEshi rAgAlApane and swaras that was as pure as honey :)

It was an evening well spent in the divine ambiance.

PS: An inebriated man walked up to Sanjay after bEgada (in the rAgamAlike) with a ten rupee note in his hand? He handed it to Sanjay and returned back. I was wondering where is he able to see a gOlaka to offer the money to the God !!

He took his seat in the centre of the aisle, who was whisked away by the organisers without much disturbance to the program

Quick Poem by Sridhar during the concert :

ಸುರುಟಿ ರಾಗದೆ ಬಳುಕುತಿರಲುರು
ಟುರುಟು ಜಂಟೀ ಸ್ವರಗಳಿಂ ತಾನ್
ಒರಟು ಸಂಗತಿಗಳನು ಸುಲಭದಿ ಬಿಡಿಸಿ ತೋರಿರಲು|
ತೆರೆದ ಕಿವಿಗಳಿಗಿಂಪ ತುಂಬುತ
ಮರೆತಿರಲ್ ತನ್ನನ್ನೆ ಬದರಿಯು
ತ್ವರಿತದಿಂ ಪಾಡಿರೆ ವಿಜಯಶಿವ ರಾಗತಾನಗಳಾ|
