Sri K J Yesudas – Inaugural concert at the Ramanavami Festival – Fort School

08 Apr

Vocal : Sri K J Yesudas

Violin :  Sri Mahadeva Sarma

Mrudangam : Thiruvarur Bhaktavalsalam

Ghatam : Thripunithura Radhakrishnan

This is the inaugural concert of the 38 day long Ramanavami Concert season at the Fort School Ground. They possibly could not have requested anyone else to do the honours, as he definitely is a crowd puller. The concert, as usual , was full of commentary , advise, and teaching by Yesudas. As always, the initial part was for the carnatic kritis and the later part for the crowd request.

Surprisingly, this concert was full of not known Kannada kritis of Purandaradasa. I’m hearing many of them for the first time. Thiruvarur Bhaktavalsalam was giving superb support to the main singer ably followed by Sri Radhakrishnan. Mahadevasarma was good whenever he was replying for the neraval or the swaras. Tani avartanam was a short, but superb affair, though it came at a rather un-expected time.

Interestingly, there was neraval for only one kriti, towards the beginning of the concert. If someone asks me as to what was the main kriti of the day, I will have no answer.

Here is the song list:

    KJY has played it for all yesterday – some good alapanas, some (i think) ordinary stuff for the mass and some of his trademark stuff. However, he still mesmerizes with the ‘perrrrrfect’ voice that a man can have on this earth.
