This was not done in a concert setting.  Part of the Ganesha festival by a resident association, conducted in their premises in a small hall to a few audience. A very serene environment, with nothing to disturb ( barring noises of few kids playing in the playground), with no aritifical amplification,  it was a  clear and pristine music. Sri K S Narayanaswamy, a desciple of Sri Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer, presented a music, which is classical in its true sense.  His alapana of Arabhi and Vachaspati , the swara kalpana and the traditional way of singing the krithis all had the authenticity behind. This is the kind of music to be preserved and taught to students. Vadiraj Bhat did give an excellent support to the vidwan lifting the overall experience of the concert.

    I am glad and proud to read this post. I am fortunate to have him as my Guru. I was a regular student of Narayanaswami Sir during the period 1992-1997
