I was in two minds about attending this concert. Being alone and nothing else to do in the morning, I decided to go for the concert.  I havent heard her name before. Concert started brisk with darbar varnam and the followed with a nice rendering of Mohanakalyani krithi. 

Shanmukhapriya and Mohanakalyani swaras were nice. The concert lacked a neraval. While the superbly executed pallavi could substitute to an extend, for me, a concert without a neraval for a major krithi is incomplete. Tha accompanying artists were very good. Anuptama ( desciple of Kanyakumari) and N G Ravi ( desciple of Umayalpuram Sivaraman) were very good in their turn. Ravi did a splendid , albeit short, tani for the pallavi set to chatusra triputa Khanda nadai.
