Srinidhi Kaushik is gifted with a good voice and he was making it to a good use yesterday at the Nadasurabhi Youth Festival. With his Guru Sri R K Padmanabha in the audience, he presented a neat concert with good composure and confidence. Excellent bhairavi alapana was the mark of the day. He did a commentable job with the purvikalyani alapana as well.  What is to be admired here is the planning and execution. Instead of going for large number of shorter krithis , he managed to sing a varnam one submain, one filler and a main lasted almost an hour within the given 1:30 hr slot. The stand-in mrudangist , I thought, did a fantastic job. Asked to continue for this concert, with the original player was stuck in traffic elsewhere, he accompanied brilliantly.
