Special day and a special concert by Vidushi Vani Satish. It was announced as a Purandara Dasa compositions concert, hence the setting was clear. She did more than justice to the theme ( despite including a couple of other Dasa Composers). Many familiar compositions, but when the Karnataka Singers perform, they have a different feel to them.
She started with a beautiful rendition of the Nata kriti. I found it very refreshing from the usual lot that we hear. The swaras followed was good too. An average thodi alapana, short too. But she sang some commendable neraval at ‘sarvatrAdi’ and few rounds of swaras. Couple of not often heard compositions came, one of Vadiraja set in neelambari. Nice little kriti seeped in bhakti. Not sure who set this to tune, but was a few imperfections at places. Another short alapana of hindolam, which was good.
Pruvikalyani was the main and it was obvious that the choice is going to be mAnava janma. The alapana was detailed and very well constructed and sung. Srinidhi was also chipped in with some nice work. There was no neraval, but the swaras were done in elaborated ,two speed presentation. Young perussion team did a good job through out, played a commendable tani avartanam.
Lot more had to come post the main. Ugabhoga, a mundige, couple of shlokas ( one on Purandara Dasa). True to her strength, they were all sung beautifully.
