Gayathri Girish gave a good concert at Gayana Samaja, yesterday. Devamanohari alapana and the keeravani pallavi stood out in the concert. Pantuvarali and dijavanti fillers werent all that enjoyable, so was the kalyani alapana. Personally, I cant stand kalyani alapana beyond 2 mins. However, the neraval and the elaborate swara were very good. Swara singing alone was aroud 12-15 mins. Keeravani was the savior of the day. The alapana was very good and so was the tAnam. Pallavi had trikalam in detail with some good support from the percussioninst. There was no ragamalika swaras, which would have given a worthy finish to the concert.
The accompanying artists had provided ample support, but hardly giving us a ‘aha’ moment. Manjunath was better of the trio. I havent seen him before, but seems to be promising.
