*Another brilliant concert by Vid.Pantula Rama
*Despite a short 2:20hr concert, she packaged a wholesome concert, including 4 detailed alapana. There was always time for a pallavi, though.
*Surprising short alapana for kadanakutuhalam. The violin return from Murthy had a better appeal. Probably, this raga is better suited for instrumental, especially the alapana.
*A request for vivAdi raga and she sang a good candrajyoti followed by shashivadana. Very good.
*A beautiful hindolam, brilliant neraval and svaras. This was the best part of the concert for me.
*Kharaharapriya main and I was hoping that it shouldn’t be another pakkala nilabadi. Chakkani raja in it all grandeur. Impressive stuff, the kriti, neraval and swaras.
