2014 Jan 25 Dr L Subramaniam , Ambi Subramaniam and Team @ yAmini, IIM Bangalore

The annual cultural affair of IIM Bangalore had a promising list of artists, of whom I planned to attend the first 2. 

The evening that was supposed to start at 6.00 as per the advertisement online, did not even give a hint of starting at 6.45. Many ontime rasikas were left drooling seeing the fuss of the main artists on the love for Base and reverb adjustments that consumed more time than the concert itself.



Violin Duet : Dr L Subramaniam, Ambi Subramaiam
Mridanga: Vid V V Ramana Murthy
Ghata: Vid Giridhar Udupa
Khanjira : Vid Sateesha Pathakota
Morsing: Vid Sateesh Sai

The evening started with a kalyANi varna that was improvised further and a kApi composition (?) with rAgamAlika swaras.

Poor accompaniments.. they did not even get a chance for a tani.

For an artist who is in the music circle for such a long time, the amount of fuss only indicated that there is a long way to go in…
