Thanks, Hameerkalyani. VKR is an excellent flautist.

I really enjoyed Sri VK Raman's concert when they had come to Toronto a few weeks ago. I meant to write about it here, but somehow never got around to it. There was a kharaharapriya main with chakkani rAja mArgamuluNDaga and an RTP in Brindavana Saranga.

Sri VKR has an excellent technique and I love how he rotates his flutes depending on the part of the octave that he is focusing on. He has a whole range of them! His style has all the markings of Sri Ramani, he has also learned a lot of Lalgudi school compositions. In fact, he played an LGJ varnam and tillana here.

His brother Mysore Srikanth and he make an excellent team; both anticipating each other's ideas very well. Reminded me of some vintage Ramani/MSG concerts from the 70s; especially during the pallavi.

B Sivaraman is a very talented mridangist. I love the clarity of the sollus and exuberance in the Tanjore Vaidyanatha Iyer/TKM school that he ably represents. Coming from the Sethalapathy family, I think nAdam runs in his blood!
