Naada Inbam schedule for May 2021

Dear rasikas, it is with mixed feelings that Naada Inbam is presenting its monthly concerts this May. On one hand, with Covid’s second wave hitting really hard, and waking us up almost every day to the news of new victims, some of them our near and dear, we were wondering whether music concerts would be appropriate in the midst of so much tragedy. On the other hand, our music goes far beyond the boundary of entertainment. It is actually a spiritual communion, an offering to the Divine, as Saint Thyagaraja has himself quoted so many times. In this perspective, our online music concerts will only serve to console and set an atmosphere of serenity rather than depression, faith rather than fear. Do tune in to the concerts on Parivadini when time permits.


Naada Inbam April 2021 schedule

Dear Rasikas,SVK’s Birthday is celebrated this month with a festival of concerts, though the pandemic has restricted our activities to be online. But Music, the essence of Naada Inbam is very much vibrant and blooming through the virtual platform, Parivadini Music youtube channel even during this difficult phase. We do hope for better days soon. The festival has a unique and interesting Theme for each concert which should be a challenge for the musicians too! Naada Inbam is very much grateful to all the musicians who risk their lives to come to Ragasudha and give an aural feast to the rasikas who are no doubt missing the concert circuit. This month we present three very young artistes whose tender age does not in any way stand in the way of vidwat. C.Charulatha, Nanditha Kannan, barely 15 years of age, and Dhanush, a fresh IIT entrant will be performing for our series along with the star performers. Let me add that their performances do fill us with amazement.An interesting sanskrit lecture series presented by Rukmini Trust is coming up this month. All of these will be streamed live in Parivadini channel also. Do be with us for all these programs.


Naada Inbam March 2021 program schedule

Dear Rasikas,
The month of March has brought to us the good news that our Government has entered the 2nd phase of administering covid vaccines. Naada Inbam is continuing online concerts because we feel any social gathering is still a risk with fresh covid spikes in various parts of the country. Ragasudha does host a few programs live with social distancing norms and other precautions.
Our annual Sangitakalanidhi Marungapuri Gopalakrishna Iyer Violin Festival in memory of Shri.Jegadeeshwaran of Malaysia fondly known as ‘Jega’ will be held from 12th to 15th this month at 6.15pm.
As Shivarathri is falling on 11th this month we are having a special Shivarathri concert on 10th March at 6.15pm by Smt.J.B.Keerthana with Sri.Rahul, Sri.Poongulam Subramanian and Sri.Sai Subramanian.
Once again I would like to thank the family of Smt & Sri V.Ananthanarayanan for offering a vocal and instrumental concert at Naada Inbam in their memory every month. This month Vidushi Nisha Rajagopalan and Vidwan J.B.Sruthi Sagar with accompanying artists are performing the Memorial concerts.
Catch all these concerts at Parivadini music youtube channel. Do enjoy all our programs both online and offline.


Schedule for February 2021 of Ragasudha & Naada Inbam

Dear friends,

If Naada inbam is able to host concerts even in the pandemic period, it is in large part due to the music fraternity- artistes and large community of rasikas who have shown such solidarity. Naada Inbam and Ragasudha are fortunate to belong to such a community that care for the wellbeing of our artform.

I also wish to express my gratitude to the family of Late Smt. Andal Ananthanarayanan and Late Sri. Ananthanarayanan who have made a momentous contribution by which, Naada Inbam will be hosting 2 concerts a month, one a vocal and the other, instrumental starting this February.

Online and offline concerts are being presented together this February also. Unusual monthly schedules these days, reflecting the pandemic situation.

Kalaimamani Tiruvarur Bhaktavatsalam’s Laya Madhuraa and a few others are hosting exciting on stage concerts available both at the venue and live web streaming while Naada Inbam still continues to present only Virtual concerts as a safety measure against the pandemic. Online or offline, all of these promise to be excellent fare and we invite you to enjoy them at Ragasudha or from the safety of your homes. Do listen to all our concerts


Naada Inbam Youth series from 16.1.2021 to 22.1.2021

Classical music as a profession is a real challenge. Especially in these days with the relentless competition offered by light music and western music. Yet, there are a whole host of youngsters who are taking to Carnatic music just for the passion and love they have for this most refined of fine arts. These youngsters are the torch bearers of this glorious and most developed art that blends melody, rhythm and emotion in a beautiful background of Oneness with the almighty.

Rasikas Welcome

Vidushi Bhargavi Venkatram concert

Hardwork and practice from early childhood and growing up with music at home does have a consequence in shaping a musician. Bhargavi Venkatram is blessed with a  beautiful voice, a wonderful taste for good music, a great lineage in music and  a responsibility and care for our classical music. She presented with flair some rarely heard compositions like Devi Sri Thulasamma in Mayamalavagowla, Sri Saraswatim in Atana in this concert. It is sheer bliss to listen to her concert with the enthusiastic support from Vidwan Sayee Rakshith, Vidwan Praveen Sparsh and Vidwan S Krishna   This concert is dedicated to Smt and Sri V Ananthanarayanan by their family. Listen to this lovely concert on 15.10.2021 at 6.15pm at parivadini music youtube channel at


Vidwan Anugrah Lakshmanan concert

A concert by youngsters that sounded as though they were veterans. This was the impression we had at the concert of Anugrah Lakshmanan accompanied by Madan Mohan and Adharsh Devarajan at the Navarathri series.

It was surprising and a little nostalgic to see a sruti box on stage. One wonders how many of today’s youngsters have even seen this erstwhile instrument of sruti! Madan Mohan and Adharsh also played like veterans giving the concert the freshness of youth as well as a whiff of maturity. Do listen to this concert on 12.10.2021 at 6.15pm on parivadini music youtube channel at

Vidushi Madhuri Kaushik concert

A delightful combination of a cheerful and bright voice, a thorough understanding of the nuances of our Carnatic Music, lovely songs on Devi by Royal composers of Mysore and to top it all enthusiastic support from the accompanists!… Vidushi Madhuri Kaushik’s first performance at Ragasudha is indeed a beautiful concert! Don’t miss her concert with Vid.Aarushi Ramesh on violin and Vidwan Kaushik Sridhar on Mridangam on 11.10.2021 at 6.15pm at

Vidushi Bhavya Hari concert

Like mother like daughter- this is the feeling I get whenever I watch Vidushi Bhavya Hari sing. Not only does the young lady resemble her mother very closely but her voice is as beautiful and so is her approach to music- clear cut with perfect diction. With lively, sensitive and supportive accompanists Vidwan R.Raghul, Vidwan Guru Raghavendra and Vidwan N.Rajaraman, the concert is thoroughly enjoyable. This concert based on Devi krithis of Papanasam Sivan is dedicated to the memory of Smt Lalitha and Sri V.S.Vaidyanathan by their family. Do listen to the concert on 10.10.2021 at 6.15pm at

Vidwan Bharath Narayan concert on 9.10.2021

Vidwan Bharath Narayan has music running through his veins as it is evident from his scholarly presentation of songs and alapanas for his concert based on Devi compositions of Syama Sastri, Subbaraya Sastri and Annaswami Sastri. His music is so complete with bhavam that it is difficult to imagine that such a young boy is singing! Such a young scholarly vidwan is a good augur for Carnatic music and its age old values. His young accompanists Vidwan Sayee Rakshith and Vidwan Kishore Ramesh were equally talented. Don’t miss out on this concert on Parivadini music channel tomorrow 9.10.2021 at 6.15pm at

T. S. Sahana concert on 8.10.2021

T.S.Sahana’s music is replete with the values of the days of yore when people used their full voice with no contrivance whatever. Her strong rich voice was just perfect for the theme she chose- Muthuswami Dikshitar and the result was delightful. Her songs were all weighty and the composer would have been really happy to have heard them sung this way!
The Kamalamba Navavaranam in Kalyani was an ideal choice for its relevance on the 2nd day of Navarathri and also for its fullness. Sahana did full justice to the piece and along with Subhasree on Violin and Nikshith Puttur on the Mridangam gave a delightful concert. Watch the concert today 8.10.2021 at 6.15pm on Parivadini music youtube channel at

Vidwan Amrit Narayanan Concert

Vidwan Amrit Narayanan’s style is bound to appeal to a wide section of Carnatic rasikas. The youngster has shown remarkable malleabilty of voice and is capable of coursing through intricate brigas with effortless ease. Taking Harikesanallur Muthiah Bhagavatars songs on Devi as his theme, he took the effort to present some rare compositions instead of sticking to the beaten track. Each and every one of the songs presented were extremely delightful both in form and style of rendition. The young Vidushi Chinmayi is a delight to listen to. Vidwan Akshay Anand’s accompaniment is always awesome! Do watch this concert by the young team of brilliant artists on 7.10.2021 at 6.15pm at the parivadini music youtube channel at


Vidushi Nisha Rajagopalan for Smt Shyamala Gopalakrishnan memorial concert

Vidushi Nisha Rajagopalan has a remarkable voice that is weighty yet resonant, melodious and along with her breath control coupled with inherent feel for aesthetics, she creates very beautiful music. This concert is filled with beautiful songs on Devi as it is presented on the auspicious beginning of the Navarathri.
Watch this fantastic concert of Smt.Nisha Rajagopalan accompanied by Vidwan Vittal Rangan, Vidwan J. Vaidhyanathan and Ghatam Dr.S.Karthick on 6th October,2021 at 6.15pm at parivadini music youtube channel. This concert is arranged by the family of Smt Shyamala Gopalakrishnan in her memory on her birthday. Link to the concert

Naada Inbam October 2021 schedule

Dear Rasikas,
This month we have a host of interesting programmes with the thrust on Devi. Don’t miss on the 9 day Navarathri youth festival. We present talented youngsters, all energized with music and charged with the desire to do well in it. Each of these young artistes has been given a specific Devi related theme. The amount of effort that they have put into their performances is amazing. So many new songs have been learnt and it is very encouraging to see how motivated these young men and women have been to give their best. Do not miss out on these wonderful concerts and do give these young vidwans an ear. In the middle of these concerts we have a highly auspicious feature- Students of Sri D.K.Jayaraman sing the spiritually and musically laden Navavarana kritis of Sri Muthuswami Dikshitar. We cannot think of a more fitting way to celebrate Saraswathi Pooja! Plus, all our regular concerts. We wish you happy viewing!

Vidushi Sikkil Mala Chandrasekhar Flute concert

Vidushi Sikkil Mala Chandrasekhar belongs to the class of traditional artistes for whom class and aesthetics matter above all other values. Her concerts are always steeped in dignity and chaste artistry with emphasis on rasikas uplifting rather than gymnastics and gimmicks. With veteran accompanists Vidwan M. R. Gopinath, Vidwan Kallidaikurichi Sivakumar and Vidwan H. Prasanna the concert was a lesson in delicate beauty. Do listen to this fantastic concert tomorrow 29.9.2021 at 6.15pm on parivadini music youtube channel. Link
