Smt Sukanya Ramgopal received the maximum applause for a good thaniavartanam, rightly so. I liked this concert for one reason. I have been longing to listen to a Madhyamavathi main for a long time. Last 70-80 concert I attended in last couple of years , never had madhyamavathi as main or a detailed rendering. She definitely has a beautiful voice.
