This was a concert filled with Kannada Compositions. Sankaran Namboodiri , choose a lot of Purandara Dasa kritis including the main piece of the day , of the great composer. By the time I could reach the venue, he was probably into his 4th song of the day. Very refreshing Saranga , not the usual nIvADa or arunAchala nAtham, followed with fine sets of swaras. He then choose the Dasa krithi pAlisamma Muddu Sarade, in abhOgi after a short alapana. I have heard this krithi sung in Mukhari by TMK and I prefer the mukhari version. Kalyani alapana was fantastic ( though I’m not very fond of this raga) and so was the krithi.

For the second time, I am hearing him sing the Sankarabharanam kriti, pOgadiralO ranga ( not that I’m complaining). Both the alapana and the violin reply were good, and so was the neraval. Tani avartanam was a short affair with nothing great to mention. Post main kritis were also filled with lot more Kannada compositions, and the kadanakuthuhalam thillana of his guru. Overall a good concert.

    Ahirbhairav and Chakravakom is almost the same..may be the Hindustani equivalent…
    So I am almost there…
