If it is raining concerts in Chennai, we had our share of drizzle yesterday. Sri G.Ravikiran ( of worldspace shruthi fame) gave a superb concert at the Heritage Academy hall ( Nadasurabhi Monthly concerts). A very matured and intelligent concert , well supported by the accompanying artists.

I can be biased about keeravani. Notwithstanding that, Ravikiran gave a beautiful presentation of this krithi. Alapana, neraval and swara were very good.

The tani avartanam was also of top class. Vid Manjunath, I’m attending his concert for the first time, gave a thrilling display of his caliber accompanied by Srishyla.
