This was another usual Yesudas concert. He was in his usual ‘evangelising’ mood.  Advice, commentary , teaching , explaining , requesting to the audience as he moved from one kriti to another in front of a huge crowd at the Fort School Ground.  similar to the last years concert, but I thought this time it was slightly more oriented towards the classical side. It might still not be pleasing to the traditional listeners of classical music. Started of with a rare varnam and then a series of not often heard ragas and krithis followed. A detailed swaraprasthana for the hamsavinodini kriti to the receptive audience, a vandanadharini kriti in Kannada.  Almost all the major kritis of the day was not-so-known compositions, mixed with his usual ksheera sagara and the on request Endaro Mahanubhavulu.

Very short neravals whenever he engaged in and detailed swara singing,  followed precisely by Nagai Muralidharan.  Thiruvarur Bhaktavatsalam was having a good day. He accompanied brilliantly and topped it up with a brilliant tani avartanam.  Post main kritis were few kannada songs before winding up with harivarasanam and traditional mangalam.
