The final concert of the 15 day long Gokulashtami concert was yesterday. You couldn’t ask for more pleasing sight for the organisers as the hall, the projection TV rooms at the first floor and the basement was full with people. The concert was in the expected lines , to the satisfaction of the audience who throng to listen to her. The initial part were ordinary , execpt the alapana of hamsavinodini and a rare kriti that followed. Kalyani alapana was also a standard affair. However, I found the neraval pretty good.

The RTP was of top class. Both the alapana and the tanam was good so was the ragamalika swaras. Mysore Srikanth did a fins job, sitting with a serious looking face. Neyveli Skandasubramanian was enthusiastic and gave a good tani avartanam with Sukanya Ramgopal.

The post tani, surprisingly, was short as it was already past 9:30. She closed the concert with her signature kurai onrum illai to the waiting audience.
