07 malgaLam ( sri shyAmakrishNAya mangaLam) – madhyamAvathi

A very nice concert by OST with superb support by all the supporting artists.  The alapana for reetigaula and varali were very good and so was the repeat by vilolin. All krithis were detailed either by singing swaras and a detailed neraval. H K Venkatram was brilinant today and I liked his SankarAbharanam very much. Not suer, if we need 2 upapakkavadya as there weren’t scope for all.  However, I was surprised with the level of coordination among three, and it was very appropriate. Vocal support by Sriram ( it was printed as Vocal duet, but was an OST show through out) was not upto the mark whenever he tried to pitch in, as his voice was not matching to that of OST.

The concert came to an abrupt stop after the felicitation. I was expecting another 2-3 songs before the malgalam. To my ( and most of the audience) disappointment, he sang the mangalam and wrapped up the show.
