Cherthala Ranganatha Sharma – Sankranthi Music Festival at Banashankari

14 Jan

Cherthala K N Ranganatha Sharma – vocal

Charulatha Ramanujam – Violin

M T Rajakesari – Mrudangam

S N Narayana Swamy – Ghatam

Relatively unknown face to Bangalore , Sri Ranganatha Sharma treated the Bangalore audience with a superb concert. From the selection of ragas and the krithis and the way it was presented, this is a top class concert. He was excellent in alapanas of both dwijavanti and kamboji. I was told that he won the award from the Music Academy under the best Raga Alapana category and going by what he did yesterday, it is no surprise to me. ChetAsri Balakrishnam was sung beautifully and was supported by the ever reliable Charulatha Ramanujam winning accolades. The majestic O Rangasai was sung beautifully, with the Alapana, neraval and the swara was detailed. Sri Rajakesari and Narayana swamy gave a 20 min Tani Avartanam.
