A young musician who is extremely talented . I have personally observed him twice or thrice for the last 5 years. Lovely sareeram.

SHyama , a lovely raga . It gives me tears when I hear say my perennial favourite Semmangudi say singing varuvraro or Smarahari Paadaravindam.
Here Is Abilash Giri Prasad, the fourth generation sishya , SHyama blessing thru his grand paramaguru SSI, paramaguru PSN , guru ASMurali .

To have such a great voice strength in low or middle octaves and to have your voice heard with a mrudangam, ghatam and kanjira.
This is a 2012 Swathi Sangeethotsavam 2012. I wanted to hear abilash in 2017 Dec at his pozhichalur sabha concert , but I could not go.

Here is his shyamA- 6 years before with such voice strength and real great carnatic curves of shyamA in ST gem krithi samarahari.

Check the contrast of speed with swaras in paramapurusha in vasantha. I am comparing swaras here with atleast one of my perennnial favourite of today , it is just pouring manodharma in vasantha swaras

I only pray that this wonderful abilash gets noticed more and not get diffused or sidelined with the so called phrase "neraya pEr nallA padrA ippO(As of today There are just too many people singing )" .

#3 Abilash Giriprasad

What a joy to hear kalpanaswaras in bahudari. Certainly 2 trajectories are very much there in this swaras - a dash of sanjay and a dash of suryaprakash , atleast to me. More than those pockets of other musician touchpoints ,there is so much of onspot originality that Abilash brings with such rhythmic control with layam which is all his own .

After all many many years back when for the first time I went to this pozhichalur sabha , the founder Shri Krishnamoorthy then said when I asked casually what was the first concert of your sabha . He said then the first concert in our sabha was by Tiruvidaimarudhur Rajagopalan Subramanyam . What else can we expect in that sabha that too when the performing lad himself is from the land of pozhichalur.

Just the KALPANA swaras of bahudari , TRS mama's manaseega guru GNB must be in tears when hearing from the clouds of his own krithi, excerpts from the MOST MUSICALLY HAPPPENING SABHA - Trimurthy Sangeetha Sabha.
