Ranjani and Gayatri presented a delightful concert at Kel Watson Theatre, Melbourne. It was their second concert in the city on this tour.
Starting with a simple and pleasing Kalyani Varnam, they displayed their dexterity in style with a variety of songs.
The main Kriti was a Tyagaraja composition Lalite sripravridha in Bhairavi, which was followed by the lightning fast composition in Pashupathipriya ragam, and a scintillating RTP on Khamas, viruttam and the most awaited Ranjani Gayatri Signature Abhang .
They also sang Krishna nee begane upon request by the audience, which brought goosebump, probably on everyone in the packed crowd.
