Another beautiful concert at Essae Music Foundation, yesterday.  Very soothing , pleasing concert, very classical. A fantastic syAma  with an outstanding neraval , a majestic thodi and a musiri special hamIr kalyAni made the evening for me.

Janaranjani Alapana was the first to get into the groove, after the varnam and abhOgi krithi. Avaneeswaram Vinu followed perfectly in his reply.  Two slow paced krithis was covered up with a long alapana of syAma, and a long detailed neraval ( how fantastic it was!!). Vinu was excellent in his return.  She stopped for a ‘coffee break’ after a ultra’chowka’ rendering of hamir kalyani , taking the time to explain the nuances of the krithi. She had learnt this from Musiri directly, who learnt it from the great Veena Dhanammal. She wanted to show this ‘pAthAntharam  ( style)’ and hoped she was true to the oringical.

Thodi alapana was very good,  traditional, unhurried, immersed deeply. Even a short rain spell could not dether her concentration. Endu dAginADO , a krithi, many fear to take up was a pleasant surprise. Cheluvaraju, who was working pretty hard, gave a spirited tani avartanam. Avaneeswaram Vinu, seeing him for the first time in Bangalore, was very good through out. His syAma and thodi alapana were pretty good, and so was his follow in general.
