Rasikas Welcome

 

Concert by Sangitakalanidhi Dr.R.Vedavalli 4.7.2017

Nick’s Birthday Concert:

Smt R.Vedavalli’s concert on the occasion of the Birthday of Nick was a eye opener concert for many of us. As always of course Vedavalli amma’s music is Dignity personified. Personification of Bhava too, and Manodharma all of which took her music to great heights that day, as always. Her neraval at Etula brothuvo drenched the hall with music that was melodic and at the same time sumptuous. I was hearing the neraval at Pannagadaruni rani suka pani in Ninne nammi for the first time and it was worth contemplating on with such divine music. Nowhere else we get to see snake and parrot together except with the Divine! Such pristine music was a Birthday treat not just for Nick but for every Rasikas at Ragasudha that day. It was Vedavalli amma with her accompanists who ought to have the “Raksha” she offered to the Divine!

But the concert was a lesson in another way too. Inspite of a severe sore throat and fever Vedavalli amma was enthralling the audience. That she never thought of cancelling or postponing the concert in case of disappointing Nick or the other Rasikas who had come to hear her, was touching. But she was far from happy with it. And it came as a surprise when Vedavalli amma made an apology for her bad throat! And she promised that she would satisfy the audience the next time. We were left speechless. Such an announcement from such a great artist after such a wonderful performance could mean only one thing- that Vedavalli amma was standing humbled before the Ocean of Music. It was not an individual speaking but a repository of one of the greatest fine arts. Indeed this ‘confession’ was what defined a great artiste as one. A true role model for the youngsters of today!

4th July: Happy Birthday Nick!

IMG_2964One of the most die-hard Rasikas of Carnatic Music, Nicholas Haynes affectionately called Nick, celebrates his 65th Birthday today. Nick is a regular member at concerts held at the Ragasudha. Though English by birth, his tastes veer towards very traditional Indian Carnatic. He has a special propensity for Sangitakalanidhi Dr. R. Vedavalli’s style. Given these details it’s not surprising that he would consider it the best way of celebrating his Birthday by having Dr.Vedavalli’s concert at his favourite venue ‘Ragasudha”! And so, thanks to Nick, rasikas are in for a Vintage Treat of Rich Classical Music on the 4th July.

Happy Birthday Nick! And wish you many more musical years to come!!
