Tani Avartanam

06 Vlluvanu – SudhasAvEri – Basavanna

07 mangaLam – saurAshtram

I am attending his concert for the first time, not sure if comes to Bangalore often. He is very promising and is talented.  I reached about 10 min late, and I guess , I missed the varnam.   Reetigaula and Simhendramadhyamam were taken for detailed rendering.  Ragam Tanam Pallavi in Simhendra madhyamam was an elaborated affair. 25mins of Alapana, 12-13 mins of violin return, detailed tAnam , pallavi in rAgamAlika and the swaras to accompany the same pallavi ragas.  It took 1hr 15 min before Arjun Kumar and Krishnamurthy played a superb tani avartanam. His rendering of krithis and the swara singing were very good, however, both the alapanas were not of the style I prefer to hear. Somehow, it did not register with me. On the other hand, Sri Venkatram’s return were apt and traditional.
