Malladi brothers gave a good concert yesterday at the Unnati Center. From the initial short sketch of the Reetigaula was the indication for the rest to follow.  A not often heard Harikamboji kriti of Thyagaraja was the first detailed alapana.  Varali alapana and the neraval and swara was very good.  The amplification was disconnected for a while during the swaras , but that did not hinder the progress. Having a closed hall, helped the singers as it was pretty much audible even without the amlpification. Mohanam was the main raga of the day and Ravikumar did a splendid job with a detailed alapana supported by a good violin return. Ra Ra Rajeevalochana came as a surprise; this is for the second time I’m hearing this as the main kriti of the day. Neraval and swara that followed was also good.

K V Prasad was very good in his percussion support. He and Vyasavittala gave a superb tani avartanam. A long list of post main krithis followed before the mangalam.  After a week of concert, there was no RTP so far. Do we have to wait for Sanjay ?
