Smt.Aruna Ranganathan’s Concert on 10th Dec,2018.

Aruna Ranganathan with Samyuktha Ranganathan(Vocal Support), Pakkala Ramdas, Kallidaikurichi Sivakumar, Nerkunam Shankar.

Aruna Ranganathan, is a fine artist who is deeply committed to a very classical style of music. The Karnataka Kapi she sang that day with the kriti Anyayamu seyakura Rama sounded very exotic to me, very unusual to hear in the concert platform yet so traditional. The accompanists supported her wonderfully as it needs a lot of sensitivity to support a very traditional style of music.

Concert by Sangita kala acharya Smt.Suguna Varadachari on 8.12.2018

The Senior musician Sangita Kala Acharya Suguna Varadachari’s Concert was a great work of Art, perfect in all details and it was a real treat to the full house of audience on that day. She started with the rare varnam “Sudathi ninne kori” in Kalyani ragam of Ponniah Pillai. The next song was “Yuktamu gadu” of Thyagaraja in Sriragam with swarams at Yuktamu gadu in the same madyamakalam as in the charanam. It gave a liveliness to the concert. She sang a few verses from Lalitha Sahasranamam in Lalitha which were very poignant and gave a clue to the song that was to come “Nannu brovu Lalitha” in vilomachapu. The neraval “ninnuvina vere gathi unnaru Janani”is unforgettable. It is forever etched in mind kind of music. The anandabhairavi sung that day was lilting with its own beauty and the song that followed was Dandayuda panim. She sang Kadaikkan parvai of Papanasam Sivan in Khamas before the main ragam of the day Shankarabharanam. The majestic shankarabharanam had a magnificent presence at Ragasudha and the rarely heard Emi neramu was rendered. Neraval at “Deenabandhu neevani” was developed with a lot of sensitivity and manodharmam and Shriramkumar’s violin was just another voice in the concert faithfully complementing Suguna Varadachari’s music. Arunprakash and Anirudh Athreya both excelled in highlighting the music showcasing it brilliantly.Aishwarya Shankar, a fine disciple of Suguna Varadachari, gave Vocal Support excellently. There was a surprise Thukkada that day after thani. She sang a very beautiful pasuram of Thirumangai Azhwar as a Ragamalika and only in the end announced that it was tuned by R.K.Shriramkumar himself!! So generous of her to appreciate the lovely tune and learn and present it with Shriramkumar himself! The concert came to an end with Pathikiharathire in Surutti.

8th Dec,2018 Concert by Mylai Karthikeyan

The Inaugural Concert of Mylai Karthikeyan, a superb Nadaswaram player with a strong repertoire gave an auspicious start for the Naada Inbam December Festival. He started with the Sriraga Varnam Sami nine and followed it with Varanamukhava, a song of Koteeshwarayyar in Hamsadwani. The rarely heared kriti Prasanna Venkateswaram in Vasantabhairavi was beautifully played in detail. The rare kriti Namamyaham in the rare ragam Sarangatharangini a Composition of Chitravina Ravikiran was rendered as a filler before the lovely Reethigowlai ragam and Paripalayamam of Swati Tirunal was the kriti. Then a brisk “Parvati ninnu” of Syama Sastri before the main ragam that day Kalyani and Kamalambam Bhajare was rendered in all its Grandeur. The concert was concluded with Dhanashree Thillana of  Swati Tirunal. Karthikeyan was accompanied by K.J.Dileep on violin, Sumesh Narayanan on the mridangam and S.Krishna on the ghatam, and their accompaniment was brilliant.
