By the time I reached the venue, they were beginning the begada krithi. The rain and the traffic snarl made the 5 km drive to eat way 40 mins. The new venue did not make it easy for locating and getting the vehicle parked in the rain. I like their playing, hence no complaints after I seated.  I am not a great fan of Kalyani, hence I cant comment much. But the swara patterns, alternated between them was superb. 

There  was an expectation for a short RTP, but the time was already late. They settled in for few after main krithis, before closing with a desh thillana , which was very good.

The venue at the St.Francis shcool is pretty good. The hall is big with sufficient ventilation. This time, the audio arrangement was also good ( not echoing as it used to at the Bank of Baroda building). The stage was decorated very well and there is ample parking space. Hope they stick to this venue.

    Hari : He was good. But taniavartanam was an average affair.

    Pramod: It should have been that. Very good.
