    Request you to please print day of week next to dates. For example Friday, 15th Aug.. Etc. This way the readers can quickly plan ahead mentally without extra navigation out of email app, into calendar app then back to continue reading. Usually one has mental map of ones regular schedules by day of week not a number date.

    Thank You

    Have you considered updating Google Calendar with concert schedules so we can all subscribe to the calendar and get reminders via our calendar notifications?

    I apologize for suggesting extra work to you but I hope you will consider it. Perhaps a programmer may be able to help out with reading a text file and publishing it automatically via a calendar API.

    Continuing the report on the Gokulashtami series

    Wednesday’s concert by Unnikrishnan was rather flat. He had switched dates with Ramakrishnan Murthy and performed yesterday. To me, it was neat, but not inspiring.

    Thursday’s concert by Abhishek Raghuram unfortunately saw the arrival of the “mike asura” (word courtesy Venkatesh !!). Constant twiddling of the sound system spoilt the mood at the start. When it settled, he gave a simply mesmerising rendering of Paramathmudu in Vagadeeswari – it is still echoing in my mind. The main in Dhanyasi (was it he or Unni who did that – I don’t remember) fell flat. The concert started dragging and when he had just started the pallavi in the RTP in Sahana at 8.45 with the thani and the speeches not done, it was time to walk out.

    Today was a Hindustani flute concert by Praveen Godkhindi. An outstanding concert such that an audience full of Carnatic music listeners stood up and gave a standing ovation. Raag Miyan ki Malhar (the Tansen variation) was handled with great flourish, but the rains still stayed away ! For the main, he chose Raag Amritavarshini derived from its Carnatic equivalent and he played it in the Hindustani equivalent of the Ragam Tanam Pallavi. He concluded with a short dhun in Mishra Pahadi and a bhajan. Knowing that the audience is not one of Hindustani music experts, he explained every piece. Ojhas Adhiya on the tabla was an absolute revelation. Overall a brilliant performance that met and even surpassed the excellent fare that the Carnatic maestros have been dishing out.

    The hall is likely to be overflowing on Sat and Sun. If you want to hear Srinivas or Soumya, you may want to come 15 mts early.

    The Gokulashtami series of concerts at Unnati has got off to a great start. Wonderful kutcheris, good sound system with no fiddling required, a hall with decent acoustics, concerts starting on time, a full audience …… what more can a rasika ask for.

    Sudha Ragunathan started it off on Saturday. The main was Sankarabharanam (Pogadiralo Ranga) with the other elaborate piece being in a relatively rara raga Priyadarshini (Rukminipadhe). A concert full of feeling and emotion. The hall was overflowing even before the concert started. (maybe because she doesn’t perform often in Bangalore these days)

    Priya sisters had an outstanding concert on Sunday, making up for their disappointing performance in Fort High School earlier in the year. This one was mesmerising with great support from MA Krishnaswamy. The main was Kalyani and the feeling and depth with which they sang Nidhichala Sukhama made me wonder if they were not charging anything for the concert !! They followed with a complex RTP alternating between Vasantha and Mohanam.

    Sanjay Subramaniam followed on Monday with one of his signature concerts full of energy and verve. The main was Abheri rendered soulfully, with a brilliant return from Varadarajan on the violin. Nagumo was rendered with great style. The RTP in Panthuvarali was the second elaborate piece

    Mysore Manjunath and Nagaraj were in on Tuesday giving their customary high tempo concert. But this one was unique in that it featured the master Karaikudi Mani on the mridangam and Amrit on the Ganjira. What a thani they combined to deliver. Amrit matched the genius of Mani every inch of the way and it was a thani that would be remembered long by everybody who was there yesterday.

    Four outstanding concerts with more to follow – if the trend is anything to go by, every rasika should make a beeline for Unnati. My only complaint has been that the concerts are stretching on for too long. When it touches the three and a half hour mark …………

    Good concert with good attendance too on a rain threatening weekend. These kind of thematic concerts always evoke interest in me and well it was satisfying.
    The Chauka varnam rendered beautifully after the vocalist explained the nuance of the varnam and Tiruvaarur where it is been played regularly during the swami veedhi purpaadu even today.
    Sarasangi, the first detailed alapana was etched out well and also Suddha Dhanyasi alapana.
    I liked her rendering Tanukeerthi (is it called as tanaroopi also?), Lataantapriya and Sivapantuvarali which was elaborate.
    Personally i felt she could have sung couple of dhuridha kaalam compositions since most of the above are in one speed. Also in S Dhanyasi she could have taken another composition
    rather than AK.
    But speaking to her later found that “Karnaranjani” was a request along with Suddha Dhanyasi composition.
    Having heard her many such thematic concerts like Myriad of Shiva, Swati Tirunaal (which she performed recently) it was really satisfying.
    Spoilers came in during fag end of thani, the power went off and rains lashing with high decibel thunders.
    Able support from the accompanists and Violin returns were good in Sivapantuvarali especially.

    Percussion riot !! Two hours of great ‘Laya Vinyasa’ experience.
    No way I could have missed this since Seva Sadan is literally rear door to me.

    @Venkatesh – Yes, nice concert by Gurucharan. Rounding up your list

    6. RTP in Kosalam (yes, he starts a RTP at 9.05 PM – talk about concert planning !)
    7. Kelo Satcharitra – Ragamalika – Purandara Dasa (he sang a few bars of each of the ragas )
    8. Thillana in Janaranjani
    9. Mangalam

    The main alapanai and Sanjeev’s return were very good, I thought. Sanjeev is proving to be a perfect twelfth man this season ! Second your comments about the thani. Pity that the power blinked off just as they started the korvai – didn’t affect the front benchers , but at the very last row, (my domain :-)) it just sank .

    Are you abandoning Santhanagopalan & Unnikrishnan ?? Please don’t !

    Vidwan Sikkil Gurucharan, Vid Sanjeev, Vid K V Prasad, Vidushi Sukanya Ramgopal

    Into the last concluding week of the Ramanavami concerts not much to look for except for Vid Manda Sudharani, whom I want to listen at any cost (after her superb concert at Academy in December). Went for Sikkil Gurucharan’s concert looking at the impressive pakka vaadhyams. Charulatha Ramanujam didnt turn up at RSM for the 2nd consecutive concert. She was not there at Vijay Siva’s also. Sanjeev did the rescue act again 3rd time in a row ( he did for Embar @ Malladi brothers) and didn’t disappoint with his lovely returns and especially Karaharapriya alapana.

    KVP and Sukanya Ramgopal did gave a splendid thani. Seasoned KVP is a pleasure to (h)ear. Never beat around with high decibel.

    List of Krithis sung :
    1.Saami Ninne Kori (V)- Sri-Karur Devudu Iyer (N)
    2. paalimpa ravEdhElaraa -Arabhi-Pallavi Sesha Iyer (A,S)

    4. raghunAta nanu -Suraranjani-Poochi Srinivasa Iyengar
    5.raamaa niyeDa-Karaharapriya-Thyagaraja (A,S,T)

    PS : Someone at Mandali seem to be browsing through through our continuous rants about the acoustic :-). There were couple of people seen at the dais and at the console box t while the acoustic been set up.

    A breezy concert at FHS on 30 Apr

    Mysore Nagaraj- Violin
    Pravin Godkhindi – Flute
    Anantha Krishna – Mridangam
    Ravindra Yavagal – Tabla

    01 Raag Madhuvanti / Dharmavati – Alapana & Swara
    02 Niravati Suka – Chakravaham
    03 Raag Charukesi – Alapana & Swara
    04 Tani Avartanam
    05 Bhajan in Bhairavi / Sindubhairavi

    As you would expect this was a breezy , fast tempo Jugalbandhi typical when Godkhindi combines with one of the Mysore brothers. Lots of fast swaras, rising tempos and clashing finales. Godkhindi seemed to be in his element ; Nagaraj was a tad more subdued. They have a good chemistry, but there seemed to be a lack of pre coordination in the one Carnatic kriti they played. The main piece – Charukesi saw some very good alapanas, especially from Godkhindi. The tani was a crash / bang affair, fast, loud and good natured. You couldn’t help resist tapping on the chair ! All in all a nice enjoyable evening. Somewhat like a T20 game. Test match lovers expecting to see a silken cover drive might have been a trifle disappointed !!

    08 Baro Krishnaiyya – Ragamalika – Kanakadasa

    10 Karuniso Ranga – he seemed to sing in Sahana – Purandara Dasa
    11 Vaishnava Janato
    12. Raghupati Raghava
    No Mangalam !

    Typical TM Krishna concert , with all the non standard renditions in jumbled up order. He was in his element and his normally rich voice sounded even better, with masterful variations in tone and pitch. This concert was all slow and melodious – thalam did not make an appearance until the ninth piece – mridangam and ghatam were unemployed adornments on stage with even the “thani” just a 2 minute affair !! His unconventional concert structure always offends the traditionalists and intrigues the modernists – this time a stand alone Thanam was followed by a Pancharatna Kriti with neraval (rarely done) and he singing only the sahityam and the violin doing the swarams. Ragam and Pallavi was in Kalyani, but the ragamalika in swaras sounded awful to me because they chose to switch ragams mid swaram (a case of innovation taken too far ?) Shriramkumar in the violin was outstanding I thought , perfectly matching the moods of the singer. All in all, a very interesting and melodious concert. Loved the melody, was captivated by the voice mastery and rued the absence of the rhythm factor in thalam. The one missing ingredient, that would make his concerts divine, at least to me, is humility. Instructing the audience at the end of the first piece that they do not have to applaud is not the wisest thing to do.

    But it was a concert of two halves Venkatesh. Started well as you have described. Thani in the technically more challenging Jhampa talam was nice. The problems started at the Thanam of the RTP. Vijay Siva actually stopped midway and said something to Arun Prakash. Sanjeev started going downhill. When the organisers trooped in for the customary speech, Vijay Siva tried to stop them (a la TM Krishna !), They insisted on at least short felicitations. Afterwards Vijay Siva made a speech ! He chided the audience for poor bhakti, for not paying attention to the music, for secretly recording (this was what had got his goat during the Thanam). It was a strange speech to say the least – you don’t chide the audience this publicly, even if they are at fault. Left a slightly sour taste in the mouth.

    Rounding up your list

    07 Ragam Thanam Pallavi – Surutti
    08 Harivasarada Upavasada – Kedara Gowla
    09 Virutham +Sivagama Sundari – Mukhari

    Some days nothing will go wrong. Chelsea will not draw the match ; Lampard wont miss a penalty ; Proteas wont choke,BMTC conductor will return you the change without a reminder. One such day was yesterday :-)

    The early signs of this came when ever reliable, dependable Vijay Siva started with Begada. I am a big lover of this raga and have a complaint that many don’t sing this often. Bhairavi came quickly with lovely Neraval and Swaras. By the time Sanjeev started returning beautifully. All winners either be forehand or back hand :-). Stage set the next brownie was scored. Rishabapriya. Alapana and return from Sanjeev was too good and my mind quickly went back to one of the archives of MLV concert where she sung this. Time for filler was thinking he will render some durithakaala krithi but he chose to score another brownie with ‘Melodic” Dwijawanti. Ecstatic.
    Finally Thodi came this season with elaborate alapana. Gliding effortlessly and sangatis flowing like a stream. Sanjeev strolled nicely along with that and I thought he either sing dācukōvalenā, kaddanuvariki or dasarathi but
    not often rendered Munnu ravana came and why I have to complain :-) By the time 8 PM Thani started I was bit surprised another an hour plus to go what he will do. Flashed that there will be RTP in place. Man am blessed :-) Paras as filler another brownie in the bag. Surati RTP with Swararaga malika in Hindola,Bahudari?, Sama.

    Seasoned Arunprakash gave a very good Thani with growing leaps and bounds Chandrasekar Sharma (who hails from Guru Vikku Vinayakram’s school). This is easily Sanjeev’s concert as someone was saying in the audience but for Mr Dependable, N Vijay Siva who always delivers quality. I just came back from his Kapaleeswarar concert a month back in Madras.

    DKJ’s bani was evident in many places and reminded my early academic days in Srirangam where DKJ used to sing regularly in Ramanavami concerts.

    This concert brought lot of calmness into me personally after some disastrous,troubled concerts earlier for various factors. I do not have anything to complain in particular and in fact was trying to nail one whole night.
    Yeah if at all I want to crib, its about the heat yesterday in Bangalore :-)

    So the Super weekend started with a bang and put high stakes on today’s Abhishek’s concert and though I will be missing TMK on sunday due to travel.

    PS : Happy on the personal front as I met Sri Badari and had a good quick chat. Hope he will help in covering the post speech part (thukkadas) in his blog.

    A Rock(ing) concert at FHS on 20 April

    Mandolin – U Srinivas and U Rajesh
    Violin – HK Venkatram
    Mridangam – Harikumar
    Tabla – Fazal Qureshi

    1. Paripahimam – Vakulabaranam – Adi– Jayachamaraja Wodeyar
    2. Entha Veduko – Saraswati Manohari – Adi – Tyagaraja
    3. Rama Ni Samana – Kharaharapriya – Rupakam – Tyagaraja
    4. Ragam Thanam Pallavi in Pantuvarali followed by Raagamalika
    5. Jagadodarana – Kapi – Adi – Purandaradasar
    6. A couple of audience requests
    7. Thillana – Misra Sivaranjani – Lalgudi Jayaraman
    8. Vasihanava Janato – Khamaj – Narsinh Mehta
    9. Mangalam

    For the first time, the pandal was nearly full – some 3000 in the audience and Srinivas and Rajesh delivered a pulsating concert. In deference to Fazal Qureshi (son of the legendary Allah Rakha), Venkatram on the violin retreated to the place normally occupied by the ganjira player and let the Ustad sit in the usual violin spot. The concert began in high tempo and maintained a wonderful quality throughout. Their variations of pitch, letting the music soar and fall was breathtaking. There was a nice connect between the artistes and the audience – Srinivas said they loved to come here and play because of the rapport they have with the audience. Repeated applause in the RTP as Srinivas played the “up” of the alapanai like a veena and the “down” like a mandolin. Thanam was vigorous, where Rajesh flourished and was followed by a few ragamalikas with the pallavi line. Thani avartanam was very good too, with Harikumar usually very good alongside a tabla player and Fazal Qureshi showed why he is special .

    At the end there were still about 700-800 people left at 10.00 PM. About 100 mobbed the artistes to click photographs – it was like a rock concert ! This might not be a great concert for the purist or the expert listener, but for many of us, it was a concert to remember.

    Seshadripuram Ramaseva Samiti concert
    20th April 2014

    Malladi Brothers – Vocal
    Embar Kannan – Violin
    Tumkur Ravishankar – Mridangam
    Tumkur Shashishankar – Ghatam

    Firt things first.
    Embar finally showed up for this concert after missing Hyd Brothers
    & Malladi Brothers earlier concert at SRSM :-)
    Acoustic got better :-) Hope someone from Samiti have seen my/our
    continuous rantings.

    Another no Varnam concert but am not complaining. Atana came and then
    Harikambodhi. Uff 3rd Harikambodhi in consecutive days.Malladi themselves
    sung on Friday at RSM. And not to forget OST sang in Seshadripuram
    a week ago.
    Beautiful Kalavati alapana followed by Embar’s lovely return.
    Main item Mukhari alapana was exceptional.

    I was too happy to sit throughout the concert but spoiler came in
    as I was getting continuous calls from my consultant and waited for
    the main piece to finish and walked out to return the call.
    Rueing badly for missing rest of the concert.

    1. Seetha Lakshmana Sahitam – Atana – T (S)
    2. Undedi Ramudu – HariKambhoji – T (S)
    3. okapAri judaga – kalAvati – T (AS)
    4. Nannu Vidachi – ReethiGowla – T (AS)
    5. Arunachalanatham – Saranga – MD
    6. Emani Ne Ni Mahima – Mukhari – SBS (ANST)

    PS: I think I saw Sri Badri in the concert hope he will share more detail about rest of the concert.

    @Ramesh- I dont want to vent out withheld but you did it. Absolutely poor one. I think lot of abhaswarams I heard and screeching. For the brilliant set of krithis/raga could have been a good concert. Having heard them many times really surprising.

    Whatever happened to Priya sisters yesterday at Fort High School ? Maybe they were unwell, but they had a really poor evening, complete with more than one screeching abhaswaram ! Haripriya made a half hearted attempt at Todi. They took up the rare raga Gamanashrama and given their form on the day, it was average; I have a sneaky suspicion that the violinist actually played a different raga !! The main in Harikambhoji didn’t inspire either and I couldn’t take it any more. Off I went.

    Something was wrong with them yesterday. They are a top pair – two years ago they rendered a soulful concert at this very venue. This time they were some five notches below their class.

    You missed a scintillating thani Venkatesh. Prasad and Karthik teamed up to serve an absolute gem – for me the highlight of the concert. So much so that for the first time, I notices a few rasikas giving a standing ovation at the conclusion of the thani.

    I was irritated by the sound system problems too, but now this is par for any concert anywhere. I too felt something missing in the concert and the music hasn’t been echoing in my heart for long as a great kutcheri is wont to do. Jayan has however felt differently – his review is way more positive.

    Malladi Brothers, Ramaseva Mandai, Fort High Schoo, 18th April 2014

    They are going to perform near my house on coming 20th Sunday (Seshadripuram) but still I prefer to cross country for this concert in FHS reason being the percussionists KV Prasad,S Karthi & N Amrith. Also bad acoustic experience with Seshadripuram concerts made me to go for this concert.

    One would be really feel happy looking at the list of krithis and immediately conclude this would have been an impressive concert.

    But there is always spoilers waiting :-(
    1. Embar Kannan missing :-(. I heard he didnt turn up for Hyd Brothers concert too. No idea who played the violin today.
    2. No sign of N Amrith – Mightily upset since I went to this concert for Special Thani of the trio.
    3. Acoustic trouble started right from first note. There was one big ‘bass” sound kept on coming. The guy at the console was clueless. Both Prasad and Karthik were trying instruct him to but in vain. The noise, looked to me coming out of one of the Sruthi. This continued till Darbar (3rd krithi) and got reduced a bit.
    By that time I got frustrated and wanted to step out. Lost interest completely.
    4. I also observed the all the artists on the stage were not all that comfortable. I could make out from their body language there is something missing .
    5. Evident that there were very short Neravals and Swaras which was really surprising.
    I just waited for the main krithi to finish and walked out when Thani started. I never walk out during Thani but today is not my day.

    This is purely my personal opinion and strongly felt that there was something the artists could be feeling missing/messing.

    Concert 16th April 2014 – Dr Pantula Rama @FHS,Ramaseva Mandali.
    After Kokilapriya, Kosalam (Sanjay sang here) and Sooryakantam, Naganandini (OST sang in Seshadripuram), a refreshing concert this one to hear rare ragas like Vakulabaranam (executed very nicely), Phalamanjari (came as a filler), Narayani etc.
    Moving away from usual Kalyani,Kambodhi,Karaharapriya and fillers as Khamas,Hindolam this concert was really enjoyable. No offence meant here :-)
    Another concert started without a Varnam (OST started with Harikambodhi, Dinamanivamsa) though am not complaining the vocalist went on to present a neat concert. Very enjoyable. Being a long weekend starting not much crowd but most of them stayed till Tani, as I walked out when the speech started it was already 9.35 PM fearing lack of bus facility due to election next day.
    PS : I personally felt Tani was too long :-(

    Yes, a nice concert by OS Thygarajan ( an all Tyagaraja kriti concert) was completely spoiled by the awful acoustics in Seshadripuram. The open air setting is more intimate than Fort High School and could lead to a potentially more enjoyable experience. But the mike system is completely spoiling this. OST’s normally rich voice sounded like an old washing machine labouring under a full load !

    As this is a problem with every venue, here’s a tip for Jayan. He has already done a yeoman service to the music community through this blog. His next everlasting contribution could be if he starts a professional mike rental company for concerts. In that case he will truly deserve the award of Sangeeta Kalanidhi !

    Today’s concert at Seshadripuram Rama Seva samiti. Vid O S Thyagarajan.
    1. Dinamani vamsa – Hari kambodhi – Thyagaraja
    2. Moddumomu – Sooryakantam – Thyagaraja
    3. Eti Jamamidi – Varali – Thyagaraja
    4. Rama ne deivama – Surati – Thyagaraja
    5. SattalEni dinamu – Naganandini – Thyagaraja
    6. Dvaitamu Sukhama – Reethi Gowla – Thyagaraja
    Bad acoustic really marred a good concert. Vocalist voice was not clear and Mridangam over heard. This problem continues even in Trichur V Ramachandran’s concert also there were multiple interruptions.

    Impressive accompaniants Ganapathy Raman in Mridangam and Sukanya Ramgopal in Ghatam, Padma Sankar in Violin exemplified in a concert by Smt Gayathri Venkatraghavan. She has sung the highest number of concerts during the last December season at Madras and she vouched it rightfully in rendering a good concert. There was an initial hiccup with acoustic setting ( this is really irritating) and it took only nearly 40 mins to set that right. She could render only 2 krithis in first 40 mins but once that is resolved no let off from that point.

    Hello Jayan,

    Can you please update the below event on your website ? Many Thanks

    Akshiptika 2013 (Meet and Concert)
    Date: 05/October/2013 (Saturday) (4:00pm to 7:30 pm)
    Venue: Jothi Mandram, Odukathoor Mutt, 13, Gangadhara chetty road, B’lore 42
    (Near Thiruvalluvar Statue, Ulsoor Lake)
    Contact: 9845461864 or 9480183978

    4:00 pm Presentation on “Svarakshema” and “Laya in Music Therapy”
    – Sowmya Sanak and Sanak Kumar Athreya

    4:30 pm LEC DEM on “Understanding Appreciating and Experiencing Laya”
    Vidwan Anoor Anathakrishna Sharma
    Accompanied by Vidwan G Guruprasanna

    5:30 pm Grand Carnatic Classical Concert (Theme: Thiruppugazh Chanda Talam)
    Dr K Rajaram – Vocal;
    Violin – Vidwan Shankar Rajan; and Mridangam – Vidwan Bangalore R. Ramanath

    Concert Theme: Thiruppugazh Chanda Talam

    While Chapu talas of count 3, 5, 7 andd 9 are known and widely prevalent, perhaps none of us have heard the rare talas with count 11, 13, 15, 17 and 19. These talas do not seem to have individual names but as a group have been termed as a subset of Thriruppugazh Chanda Talam. Guruji Sri A S Raghavan had identified the authentic chanda talam for Thiruppugazh compositions and has formatted them into appropriate raga and tala. Dr K Rajaram through this concert will demonstrate the beauty, grandeur adaptability and suitability of these rare talas at various portions of Carnatic classical performance like Sub-main, Main, RTP, Thillana, etc.

    LEC DEM on “Understanding Appreciating and Experiencing Laya”

    “Shruthi Mata Laya Pitha” – is the basic tenet of Carnatic music, rather any form of music, but somehow, most people have difficulty in understanding Laya, although Laya is what, defines music, binds music, and makes music appealing. Vidwan Anoor Ananthakrishna Sharma is arguably the most versatile musician of present times with an unchallenged expertise on Laya. He is known to traverse through the breadth of its simplicity and depths of its complexity with equal ease. He along with his student and accomplished khanjira artist G Guruprasanna will help the audience gain a better understanding, profounder appreciation, and attain the divine experience of Laya.

    TRICHUR BROTHERS concert was outstanding last sunday at Unnati. Though many high profile concerts are line up this year I think that concert would be rated the best.

    I appeal to all the sabha secretaries in Bangalore to encourage this duo as this city has experienced only few concerts of this pair.They are the next generation Malladi Brothers.

Pantuvarali, Atana were other ragas performed. The thani was special with TAS Mani on Mridangam, S Karthik on Ghatam and M Gururaj on Morsing. Totally brilliant one.

    raagavalli: Introducing new compositions for music an dance.

    This month we are going to present aShTanaayikaa padaM-s composed in Kannada and Telugu.
    In the world of NaatyaShaastra, the concept of aShTanaayikaa-s is too well known and yesteryear musicians too used to sing the padam-s masters like kShEtrayya andn SaaraMgapaaNI. Now a days it has only remained with the dancers and day by day, even here the survival rate is fast depleting. In such a gloomy background, here is a bold and refreshingly new attempt to revive the past glory by composing fresh and challenging padam-s which are rich in terms of both music and lyric leading to lilting vocal rendition rewarding in terms of musical novelty and picturesque dance highly imaginative from the view point of rasa-bhaava.

    Concert – Vid. Pattabhiram Pandith/TKV Ramanujachar/KU Jayachandra Rao/BR Ravikumar:
    NR Colony rama mandira
    A quick review:
    As most of the rama navami season concerts, this also started late at around 7.30pm. Started with a very slow Kalyani Atta Thala Varna in two speeds. Raaraama intidaka in Asaaveri was brisk with good control and divinity. Next one was Rama nannu brovara in Harikamboji was awesome with nice kalpana swaras. Then came Paramapavana Raama in poorvi kalyani with detailed ragaalapana and usual mind blowing kalpana swara. A great thanks to both TKV mama and KUJ for wonderful support. Thani was excellent specially khanda nadai was very good. Post main items included Yadava Nee ba in Tilang then Yaman Raga alapana where TKV sir showed all different colors of this beautiful raaga. Sarwam brahma mayam was literally “brahmamayam”. Jagadoddharana in Kaapi was presented with little alapana. A rare thillana in poorvi – Niriniri Gamagarisa was just awesome again great follow by KUJ.

    There are really few concerts down in Koramangala, etc. Starting from Banashankari through the Market and into Basaveshanagara/Malleswaram have more stuff.

    I’m in HSR Layout, and probably Malleswaram’s had the most concerts I’ve attended. =)

    Attended Malladi Brothers concert at Gayana Samaja, It was fully packed with rasikas who were eager to listen to the duo. Concert started with KedaragauLa VarNa. and then there was a break for half an hour, due to bad sound system. I wonder why these people do not give importance to sound system. Artists have to really plead for increasing the volume. I feel sorry to say that it was a bad start to this conference. After setting up the sound system they sang Srimahaganapathim Bhaje in AtaaNa with very good swara prasthara. Nadaloludai was short and rendered beautifully. Reetigaula ragam was short and Mamahridayi of Vasudevacharya was again ultimate. main piece was Meenakshi me mudam dehi in PK. They were planning to wrap it up but the organizers allowed them to sing pallavi. it was in Sarasangi. One disappointing event was when they were still ending the rtp prasad came in front of them to give VOT. he could have entered the stage from left side, instead he entered from right and it was insult to the Artist.

    Hope these Organizers will realize and provide better sound system.

    A concert to forget at shankar mutt which had TNS singing. The acoustics if i can use such a heavy word was all over the place. The traffic flowing just 10 steps from the stage…CN.Chandrashekar should find a different career. TNS had no problems with his voice and I was expecting a memorable one. but he wrapped it under 2 hours. The main piece was saramati which lasted for half an hour and a lengthy sloka at the end. a good rithigowla at the start and I dont even remember the others. the sound was so bad. and Smt Vedavalli who was to sing today at Indiranagar sabha didnt arrive because off ill health. two disappointing days.

    The Deccan Herald says Naadasurabhi’s going to have Malladi Bros today at St John’s Medical College — but I’ve seen mention of Naadasurabhi’s Annual series in *November* — and on 9 November, Malladi Bros’ programme is mentioned.

    So are they singing both on 9 September and 9 November or what?

    yeah…. at some point of time, it was only noise; not music.. it was sounding so harsh bcoz of that mike system….
    To be honest, they could have ellaborated more during the jugalbandi…co-ordination could have been better…
    the concert was good though..

    short and sweet concert by Sreevalsan at bharatiya vidya bhavan, soorya festival, but a lot of disturbance because the audience was mainly for the dance program and hence lot of running around and chatting. he started with ninnu kori and siddhi vinayakam with a brief set of swaras. a nice kalyani alap followed by vasudevayani and swaras, a filler with gopalaka paahimaam, thodi was next with a brief alap, krithi “thaye yashoda” with neraval and swara and a brief thani. he finished with jagadhodharana and bhagyadalakshmi. the violin was very good by charulatha ramanujam and nothing extraordinary by sudhindra on mridangam and chakravarthy ? on ghatam.

    5. Mayamma nannu [ RST] – Naattakurinji Adi(2 kalai) – Shyama Shastri

    9. Kaa Vaa Vaa – Varali – Adi
    10. Mangalam – Sourashtram – Adi – Tyagaraja

    The concert started with a bang. Right from the Mayamalavagowlai, I was hooked. The neraval was brisk as usual and some really nice swara patterns as well. Loved the prayogams of datus. Thoroughly enjoyed the piece.
    The Phalamanjari was just a filler with very few swara phrases in the end. Nothing great. Adequate.
    Then came the Naatta. I have a huge soft spot for this raagam. I loved the aalaapanai. Quite detailed. HKV’s reply wasn’t as detailed. Jagadanandakaraka was taken up in a tempo which was more on the slower side. I know a lot of people consider it a waste of time to sing a Pancharatna krithi in a concert, but I was personally pleased. I love this krithi and it’s rarely heard in a concert. The neraval at ‘omkAra panjarakIra’ was decent.
    Narasimha aagaccha in Mohanam followed. I was surprised to hear the raaga mudra for Mohanam and the ‘guruguha’ in the madhyama kaala sahityam. Definitely did not sound like a Dikshitar krithi, though it turns out it is. Filler.
    The naattakurinji was excellent as far as I’m concerned. Extremely detailed aalaapanai, spanning every octave possible(there were a few slight shruti problems in the atitaara sthaayi though). I thought he structured the raagam really well. HKV’s responses were lovely too. The krithi was rendered well. the lack of neraval didn’t really bother me. The swarams were fairly detailed and his usual sarvalaghu patterns were aplenty.
    The tani was excellent. Srimushnam Raja Rao and Ramanujam were in top form. Some of the tishra and khanda patterns are still in my head. And by Gayana Samaj’s standards, very few people went out during the tani I must say.
    Then came the part of the concert I was waiting for the most. The RTP! I’d been asking him to sing a detailed RTP in Shubhapantuvarali for the past 4 or 5 concerts that he’d been coming to Bangalore. Got my wish last evening, and how! I was scared of a shortened RTP because it was already quite late, but no disappointments. It was extremely detailed. No dilutions whatsoever. The raagam was just laden with bhaavam(what with the raagam already tailor made for the shoka rasam). I almost had tears in my eyes by the time he touched the upper Shadjam. Just beautiful. Again, some extremely high phrases in the taara sthaayi. And when he got to the mandara sthaayi, HKV just gave up and said ‘I need a seven string violin to play what you are singing’ in a light hearted vein. I say this after every TMK concert, but that man’s voice has unbelievable range. I really enjoyed HKV’s aalaapanai as well. Again, completely brought out the bhaavam. Such a lovely raagam and executed to perfection by both TMK and HKV. The taanam wasn’t shortened either. For a change, the percussion joined in. Srimushnam was excellent in matching what Krishna was singing in the taanam. It was a total blast.
    The Pallavi was in chatushra Jhampa taalam. First, he did a raagamalika of just the sahityam in Begada, Sri and Nalinakanti. The transitions back and forth between the raagams were excellent, with it being done half way through the pallavi line some times. Then came the neraval and swarams. Again, really good. Raagamalika of swarams in Kaanada, Hamirkalyani and Kaapi, each ending with the pallavi in the corresponding raagams. The Kaapi swarams stood out for me. Those few phrases were so rich with bhaavam. Ended with the main Shubhapantuvarali pallavi again. A mini version of a tani(if a one minute long kuraippu and korvai playing can be called that) was there as well. Overall, this RTP was a total treat. This turned out to be one of my favourite concerts just because of this one piece.
    It was quite late and I thought he’d wrap up. But he sang Ranga baaro in Maand. It was unhurried and pleasing to the ears.
    The Shlokam was really good too. Raagamalika in Anandabhairavi, Sahana, Dhanyasi and the last line sung in Sindhu Bhairavi leading to Vishweshwara.
    Kaa Vaa Vaa was a request from a small boy. The boy said he was requesting it by himself and no one had asked him to request for it. And Krishna was really good to oblige and sing it for him. It was of course sung briskly.
    The Sourashtram mangalam concluded the concert, and I walked out with a distinct sense of having enjoyed one of the best evenings at a kutcheri.

    “I would like to compare the behaviour of Audience at diff Sabhas, when we look at ISS, Odakathur and Infosys Hall (unnati Center). The kind of people who come there are really concerned about the artists and concert. I have always enjoyed attending concerts at these places.”

    Oh yes, I can second that… especially the recent set at Unnati. You could tell at those concerts that even the artistes were thoroughly enjoying performing for a discerning audience. Gayana Samaj has somehow always felt cheap, in every sense of the word.
    I missed the Sanjay concert, but was there for the Sikkil Gurucharan one. Loved the Madhyamaavathi and the Ranjani RTP. Not a huge fan of the Kokilapriya. Gurucharan’s execution was fine, but I don’t warm up to the raagam itself. Would have traded for a more detailed Ranjani RTP itself any day.
    Overall, he didn’t disappoint. I see great things for him in the future.

    Will be attending Shankar sir’s and T.M. Krishna’s concerts. Really looking forward to those.

    Thansk Jayan,

    Ya about Sanjay’s concert what shall i tell.. his every concert is verymuch informative.. Infact I was late to the venue on Tuesday. GF was packed even the reserved seats were full. I entered inside he was singing Shankarabharanam alaapana. before to that I think he sang Chalamelara in Marga HindoLa has thisone a couple of times in bangalore. Bagumeera in shankarabharana was very good with nerval and brisk swara prastara. Shivakamasundari in Mukhari was a small item (reminded me of saketharaman had sung this during last year at GS). there was one more thing to observe here after this song Sanjay wanted the Monitors to be put off and he had to ask repeatedly. Let me put it straight oflate GS administration is very bad.

    The main item Palinchu Kamakshi in Madhyamavathi was a full repetition to the audience who witnessed KSG the previous day. Thani by Naiveli Venkatesh was like sprkling cloud. He usually uses the left had beats during thani(eda prayoga). Thanks to GS audience who were murmuring all the time. since I missed out on KSG concert I enjoyed Madhyamavathi to the core. :)

    before rtp in Simhendramadhyama sanjay took Bhogeendrashayinam in kuntalavaraLi which again a played by KSG other day. RTP was good he took khanda Nadai in thanam which was amazing. as usual he took sahana and behag in ragamalika. other ragas were gangeyabhushani, hindoLa and mohana later when he took ananda bhairavi which suited the sahitya of pallavi, choosing the right raaga suruti to end the pallavi.

    Dasara krithi in Desh raaga dasara nindisabeda was a slow tempo. He ended the concert with vishweshvar darshana karo it was againg a repeat song.

    Finally overall very good concert… he sang with full energy as always doing full justice sang for 3 complete hours…

    looking forward to see him in Koramangala… and obviously during the season in Madras (FYI he is giving 15 concerts in the season).

    At the end thanks Badari for reserving a seat for me negotiating all mama’s and mami’s ;)

  461. sridhar

    October 28, 2010 at 12:51 pm

    Just a matter of Concern

    in continuation with kiran, I had been to Sanjay and Sikkil’s concert where both the concerts were extremely good. but these mama’s and mami’s really untollerable. In sanjay’s concert there was a guy /uncle sitting behind me who was continuusly talking and when I turned back and starred at him he said “ondond nimshakku hinde thirugidre enu madakkagalla”. (I cant do enything if you turn back like for every min).

    I really felt so bad being educated if these people only do like this how can people like me appreciate the and understand the intricacies of a Vidwatpoorna kacheri. My sincere request to all the rasika’s of music to please give respect to Artists by not disturbing the co audience.

    I would like to compare the behaviour of Audience at diff Sabhas, when we look at ISS, Odakathur and Infosys Hall (unnati Center). The kind of people who come there are really concerned about the artists and concert. I have always enjoyed attending concerts at these places. Most horrible thing abt GS is that people dont even keep their phones in silent mode and adding to it attending calls inside the auditorium.

    I have been attending concerts in Madras during the dec season from past 3 yrs. Please here are so matured that it will be pin drop silence. and even the Organizers make sure right people are allowed inside.

    yesterday’s concert was too good, sikkil sang at his best. Started with Hamsadwnai Varnam, sreeramapadame was short and sweet. Dhasharathe Daharathi in Kokilapriya a composition of Koteeshwar Iyer was a rare Raga and krithi, before that when he sang elaborated Madhyamavathi alapana people who had attended the other two concerts would have felt the repitition of raga but alakalalla was again a krithi which were hardly get to listen in concerts. Thani was amazing by TBR what balance b/n left and right. after a short VOT sikkil dint dissappoint us. short RTP in Ranjani was mind blowing he did ragamalika in janaranjani and Sriranjani. Post RTP he sang another rare krithi in Chenchuruti(sorry if its wrongly spelt). This was a composition by NS Ramachandran and tuned by TSK. interesting thing is that in the anupallavi and charanam the it has graha bhedam and gets changed to Bilahari and Kharaharapriya..

    forgot to mention that the stage arrangement this time is excellent… grt job… very traditional look to the stage…

    Hope to attend Shankar Sir’s and TMK’s concerts.

I hope there is a silent mode for many peoples tongue during a concert. Bad day. Also they charge 40 bugs.

    Vocal: Sri. T.M. Krishna
    Violin: Sri. H.K. Venkataram
    Mridangam: Sri. Tiruvarur Bhaktavatsalam
    Kanjira: Vyasa Vittal

    1. Rama neepai tanaku [S]- Kedaram – Adi – Tyagaraja
    2. Veenabheri [RS] – Abheri – Adi – Muthuswamy Dikshitar
    3. Sri Kamakoti peetashithe – Saveri – Adi – Mysore Sadashiva Rao
    4. Shankari Neeve [RS]- Begada – Rupakam – Subbaraya Shastry
    5. Himigiri Tanaye – Shuddha Dhanyasi – H.N. Muthiah Bhaagavatar
    6. Raagam Taanam followed by Punniyam Oru Koti [NT]- Keeravani – Adi (2 kalai) – Periasami Thooran
    Neraval at: Annai Kaamaakshi polay anbe vadivaai vandaar
    7. Bhaja Govindam – Ragamalika – Adi – Sri Adi Shankara
    8. Govardhana giridhara – Darbari Kaanada – Adi – Narayana Theertha(?)
    9. Raama janaardhana – Shankarabharanam – Adi – Muthuswamy Dikshitar
    10. Mangalam – Sourashtram – Adi – Tyagaraja

    The concert took some time to start, what with Bhaktavatsalam arriving late, and a certain kitten which had to be taken off the premises by Krishna himself, but once it did, the audience was in for a treat. A nice start with the Kedaram. Pleasant and soulful.
    The Abheri was interesting. He sang it in the old sampradaya, not the Nagumomu version of the raagam that sounds dangerously close to Karnataka Devagandhari. Was pleased with the choice. A few good phrases of swarams as well.
    The Begada was a delight. Just wish the raagam were a bit longer. The swarams were unhurried and all sung in the first speed. This was a good thing. Some excellent phrases in the mandara sthaayi. I’m sure there were a few phrases with the whole aarohanam sung in the mandara sthaayi itself. Krishna’s range always impresses me.
    He sang Keeravani with alternating raagam and taanam. A very nice rendition of the krithi. Robust Krishna style neraval.
    The tukkudas were breezy.
    On the accompanists, H.K.Venkataram was strictly satisfactory. Bhaktavatsalam was energy personified. The thani from him and Vyasa Vittal was brilliant. Some really good nadai bedham.
    Overall, a really good concert.

    i went to the concert, went in for free and sat in a row which was priced at 2k. many had got their tickets thru net and when i called there were no tickets available while half the place was empty when i went there. most of them entered for free, those with tickets where ofcourse frustrated. the concert itself was pretty ok, 3 hours of rashid khan would have been fine, it was 1 hour of RK,1 hour of tmk and 1 hour of jugalbandhi. the jugalbandhi was oil on water stuff, they were not prepared clearly though it had its moments, Rashid Khan earlier presented Raga Puriya Dhanashree for an hour which was beautiful !!

    Just thought of writing few lines about Sanjay’s concert at unnati,

    It was one of the memorable concert in my life. did full justice by singing for 3 1/2 hrs (leaving VOT). What a man….. :)

    RTP in Hindola was mind blowing with introducing some rare raagas hindustani like patdeep. Hats off to his collection of Varnams. Emanamidhiche was a good rere comp in Shahana.

    main item was in kambodhi some Tamil krithi….

    I will surely remember this concert forever…..

    such poor arrangement from the organisers for tns concert. the place was small but one cant complain about that. the audience were so immature, phones ringing, constant chatting, lots of kids from hand helds to 5 year olds shouting.the rain did not help too, people passing in front of the performers constantly. and to top it all off the organisers put a camera and a screen behind which was totally useless and tns had to revolt when he was in the middle of a song. a very short concert and one to forget too.

    Mysore Brother’s concert was very short and sweet, started 20 min late and a further 10 mins of sound issues while playing. They opened with a short piece in nagasvaravali, then a kriti in shudha dhanyasi, Dharmavati was very good and kamboji was followed by thani, they finished of with ahir bhairavi. they never shifted past 3rd gear i felt, if i can put it that way !!

    Ananya is presenting a new series of programme on allied Ragas.

    A senior artist will provide deeper insight into the gross and subtle differences of grammar and tradition attached to the rendering of the Ragas allied to one or more in a pair or in a small group. The melodic makeup of each raga will also be highlighted. For young musicians this will enhance their mental perception and their grip on rendering of each raga. For discerning audience the distinctions and similarities in the melodic mode of each raga, in a bracketed pair pof group can become better discernable and each such raga more easily identifiable and enjoyable.

    Some of the aliied ragas are- Aarabhi and Devagandhari, Aarabhi and Dharbaar, Bhairavi and Maanji, Bhoopalam, Bhouli and Revagupthi, MAdhyamaavathi and Sreeragam, Hameerkalyani and Saaranga, Malayamaarutham and Valaji, Lalitha and Vasantha, Chaarukaeshi and Sarasangi, Hindolam and Varamu, and so on.

    The inaugural concert will be given by a well known musician and musicologist Vid.Dr.T.S.Sathyavathi, accompanied by Vid.Nalina Mohan and Vid.H.S.Sudhindra. This will be held at Ananya sabhangana on Sunday, 30th May 2010 at 10:00am.

    A brief review

    The 1st May concert of Amrutha Venkatesh @ Ananya under the Guruguhaamrta banner went off pretty well.

    The song list
    1. Kanakambari karunya – Kanakambari (1st mela in Dikshitar School)
    2. Mangalambikayayi Namasthe – Malavashri
    3. Kumaraswaminam – Asaveri
    4. Pamarajana Palini – Sumadhyuthi
    5. Akshaya linga vibho – Shankarabharanam
    6. Sri Kamalambike

    All are Dikshitar compositons not often heard. The singer tried to sing it as per the original notes present in the Sangita Sampradaya Pradarshini. Both G.Ravikiran and Amritha explained the subtle differences / nuances between the two schools taking some examples. (Unable to reproduce thanks to my not-so-indepth knowledge :)
    Ably supported by both Raghu & Manjunath one could experience the haunting nature of some of these compositions and raagas.

    My takeaway was – A scintillating experience to listen to some rare raagas were I guess there are hardly 1 or 2 compositions

    I was there.. there was some talk when it was said that some artists on the stage belonged to “Karnataka” TMK didn’t like it…in the sense …he said that artists didn’t belong to a particular region, but belong to our nation…
    I donno if there was some talk over the anthem….

    KJY’s concert was moving so well for the first 1hr15 mins, until the CM intervened with atleast 10 photographers and innumerable securities and policemen,the photographers disturbed the artist so much it was painful to watch, the CM took away 20min and he read his speech and the guy could not even utter KJY’s name properly !! and visibly KJY who should have seen millions of such political gimmicks in his career hardly cared but i can only hope it was because of the CM he did not sing the main piece for the night. only bhajans and short songs filled the rest of the evening. A short thani around 6-7mins?, the violinist accompanied him very well and his playing posture spoke loads of volume of his respect for Yesudas.

    At all who missed neyveli santhanagopalan at Sheshadripuram, He is singing at sevasadan malleshwaram tomorrow april 9th. The main piece, as he announced today at his concert at shankara mutt, basaveshwara nagar, would bee ramaneesamanamevaru. There is a nice story behind this:
    Somebody gave a chit to neyveli with this song written in it. Neyveli, with his habit of singing whatever requested by the audience, didnt want to leave it. He announced then that whoever gave this chit please come tomorrow for my concert, I’ll sing this there !!!

    Santhanagopalan concert at Seshadripuram was a delight. Main piece was madhayamavathi Rama katha Sutha. H.K.Venkatram seemed slightly out of sorts. Bhakthavathsalam on the mridangam exhibited his expertise and the naadam from his mridangam was soothing. G.S.Ramanujam’s Ghatam embellished the concerts with short flourishing phrases. Santhanagopalan also sang kamavardhani (raghuvara nannu) prior to the main piece. Entertaining music.

    TM Krishna’s concert on 2nd august was amazing. U know what was the main piece? It was Viriboni- Bhairavi atta tala varnam!! It was really unique. He sang the neraval, swara kalpana and there was also tani avarthanam after that varnam. He sang 4 etthugade swaras and also the anubandha which many artists do not sing or even do not no at all.!!!
    He’ll come 2 blr twice in november it seems.

    I did attend, it was good, If I can post my personal thoughts not a review.

    The concert started with Reethigoulai, Vanajakshi, although the initial nervousness set in where in they missed the pallavi lyrics.

    Nattai was in a good tempo, and kalpana swaras rendered briskly, ably supported by Nagaraj

    Varali raga was a bit monotonous, with the same brigas being repeated at all octaves, where as Yeti Janma had its own lyric forgetting phases . With over use of brigas, the niraval was sans Bhava.

    Chenchu kamboji was at perfect tempo and sung with composure.

    Mohanam ragam was well presented and the applause said it all as to how much it appealead although ardent Connoisseurs would have their own moment to criticize some of the brigas in Mohanam :).

    The rest of the concert was nice and well managed and sung with good azitham. Narayaneeya strotam followed by Chetashree, the Hari Bhajan, and Neelambari to name a few.

    Overall a well rendered concert,

    Waiting for TM Krishna’s today

    July 30, 2009 at 5:09 pm

    Well yeah they first started off with the kamboji varnam, then smaja varagamana – hindola, a thyagaraja krithi in the raga kanthamani (61st melakartha raga) , venu gana – kedhara gowla, hari narayana in begada, dasharatha in thodi, a song composed by Ganesh and the raga too is found by Ganesh, name of the raaga is Amrutha Kalyani the scale goes like the arohana of amrutha varshini and avarohana of Kalyani, and and a few more interesting ones..i’m unable to place the..the krithi’s…but on the whole they were magical..!! :)

    I know it is not your fault :) I just wanted a place to vent my frustrations!
    Of course, annonymously !!

    What has RR Keshavamurthy Foundation ” celebrating “Guru Smruthi 2009″
    to do with a concert from Ranjani & Gayatri?

    I do like them — however, RRK trained so many GOOD students … wouldn’t it be more appropriate for a TRUE deciple (as in someone WHO paid for all those classes/training) to pay homage ?

    When you talk to any “musician” from Karnataka – they are so frustrated about having so many NON-karanataka musician performing at major festivals — while they themselves NEVER get any chance in Chennai – for example – however talented they are, i.e., these musicians from Karnataka. Now when the time comes to showcase such talent from studnets of RRK – what do I see ? The same old – same old !!

    Same with Percussive arts center? Next time any one of them belonging to such illustrious organizations — starts to complain … I will direct them to YOUR web site :)

    Again — -nothing to do with you — thank you for providing some space for me to express my views/frustration ?
