BTW.... to anyone who was at Raghu sir's felicitation on the 5th (earlier this month) at NGS... is there any way of getting a copy of that documentary video that was shown? Indira Menon got some really RARE footage in that (including a video of Chembai with a very young PMI... and a video of GNB with LGJ and Raghu!!)

For those who have not already seen this, please visit www.palghatraghu.com .. The videos feature an incredible thani by Raghu sir. What a magician the man is!

I echo Sankirnam's thoughts; has anyone recorded the Raghu sir felicitation? if so, can the video footage of Raghu sir with LGJ sir and GNB please be shared?!

sure there are. i have heard atleast 2 or 3. i found one at http://www.sangeethamshare.org/gvr/SSI_ ... s/SSI_LGJ/

although the mridangist's name isn't mentioned, it does sound like Palghat Raghu.

To : Mr. Kulkarni

Dear Sir:

I have not come across any SSI concert with Raghu. I once checked with Mr. PSN as well years ago and he opined even he doesn't remember any with Raghu. But if Raghu has accompanied it might be Kuchi mridangam and the nadham will be distinct. If the year is known it is relatively easy to confirm. God bless you/family.

Regards

Guru

Appu, carnatica's website lists SSI's 1992 Navarathri Mandapam concert with PR: (SSI18) http://www.carnatica.net/ramanathan/music/ssi-tapes.htm

This is the singular reference to an SSI-PR association I found on the net!

Coolji

the concert 116 of SSI -PR with the RTP and thani, i think is PR himself. The korvai the mridangam plays (i think 2nd round) is something which i have heard him play long back. Experts , please chip in

Dear All:

I thank Mr. Ku(Coo)lkarni for the uploads. If anyone has the AIR excerpts (SSI-TNK-PR-92-Navarathiri Mandapam) in mp3 format which is being cited here, please upload atleast the RTP if not the full concert to listen. Raghu used Kuchi long ago and occasionally. It is only Kappi ever since. 60's witnessed him playing Kuchi sometimes I was told.

Regards

Guru
