*The downpour outside was paralleled with a downpour of musical swaras today. Sriranjani and kannada swaras that was sung today has to be experienced. No words to describe. If I am not mistaken, the kannada swaras were sung in 3 speeds.
*Sriranjani swaras had more interesting points, especially the way he prefixed raghupatE, ninnu vinA, srIrAma, sakala lOka nAyaka before ‘brOcEvarevvarE’ at different repeats. It was brilliant.
*First half, until kannaDa, there were no detailed alapana. KannaDa alapana was fabulous. Very typical of his style, which probably is a bit off-putting to some. Surprisingly, after some swashbuckling swaras, he asked PAtri to play the tani avartanam.
*He sang alapana ( fairly in detail way) for every thing that followed, including a teasing surutti (for patiki harati rE).
* Sumasayaka, was sung like a varnam, with swara sahityam after chittaswaras, with some of his expressive twists and stretches.
*Garudadhwani alapana was also a novelty and the express-speed swaras.
*A very soouldful sAvEri, among the forceful ( bit riotous, often) others, stood out.
*Both Akkari Subhalakshmi and Patri Satishkumar were excellent.
*I see a change in pattern in his singing, of late. Eager to see how it evolve. I like his concerts and his ability to inspire awe in me as a listener. It was no different,yesterday.
