yes, it was sung in Yamunakalyani.. and not in sAlagabhairavi.

11 thillAna ( dhim ta dhim ta ) – hamsAnandi – ?

12 mangaLam – saurAshtram

Started a bit patchy with some issues with the setting of amplification, but got into the groove with the chalamelara krithi. Swaras of margahindolam , harikamboji and nalinakanti were nice. Major alapana was for harikamboji , lastes almost 15 min.  Ragam Tanam pallavi was the major of the day and was done in a complicated Tala ( to me ! ) with Trikalam and ragamalika swarams. Ragamalika swaras were sung continuously, switching from one to other with ease, without a violin reply after each raga. Tani Avartanam was short, may be due to the time pressure.

The lady who announced during the felicitation made a goof by praising the harikamboji and ‘bhairavi’ alapana of Sowmya stunning everyone including the artists. She came back and corrected herself appropriately, after the garlanding of the artists and the sponsors of the evening.  This would have prompted Sowmya to confirm that the RTP was sung in Rishabhapriya, which was good as I would not have found out ( I have almost concluded it on Latangi 🙂 with a fair amount of doubt. Luckily our announcer did not talk about the RTP , may be as confused as us and found it safer to omit mentioning.

Neyveli Narayanan is a pleasure to watch. He was good as usual. Omkar also gave good support. His car was giving more support to the percussion with its alarm going off at will ( some kids playing around and would have touched) to the disgust of the audience.

S.Sowmya @ Nadasurabhi Annual Concert 15th Nov 2007

Vocal  : Smt S Sowmya

Violin :  Smt Nalina Mohan

Mrudangam : Sri Annur Ananthakrishna Sharma

Partial list as I reached almost an hour late..

Bhairavi main piece was the major attraction of the day. Both alapana and the tanam was very good and detailed.  Surprisingly, there was no upa-pakkavadyam. This had given Sri Ananthakrishna Sharma ample time to perform during Tani Avartanam and he did a splendid job with some nice and interesting patterns. What is added to the overall effect of the concert was his playing for the krithis. He had shown amazing anticipation and was outstanding through out.

04 dEvi brOva – chintAmaNi  – Shyamashastri

05 nekkurugi unnai ( A,S )  – AbhOgi – Papanasam Sivan

06 akhilAnDEswari – dwijAvanti – Muthuswami Dikshitar

07 RTP  – Bhairavi

Pallavi in ” kuvalayadala nayanA harE krshNA”

Swaras in Anandabhairavi , hindOLam ? , ranjani , sindhubhairavi, bhairavi

07B tani Avartanam

08 haNNu bandide – hindOLam – Purandara Dasa

09 srI mAdhava vAsudEva – behAg – Papanasam Sivan

10 smara sundara ( jAvaLi ) – parAs – Dharmapuri Subbarayar

11 thillAna ( tAm tAm tAm ) – khamAs – Patnam Subramania Iyer ?

12 mangaLam – sourAshtram

It was an ordinary concert and lasted just over 2 hrs without interruptions. I’m not saying it was bad, but there is nothing in it to consider it as a great concert. Sri Alur Ananthakrishna sharma was very good while accompanying, but the Thani avartanam was short and very ordinary.  May be the time pressure would have affected him.
