Today morning V. Sankaranarayanan presented a good concert starting with a Dandapani Desigar song in Arabhi, followed by Nanda gopala in Yamuna Kalyani, Thanikai valar Saravana bhava and the main song was Marimari ninne in Kambodi. For Thanigai valar, the neraval in the lines Tulli vilayadum mayil and the following swaras were highly imaginative. The Kambodi ragam was well presented. The song did not have any neraval or swara.

23 July 2019: Chennai (A) -Arangisai 8.45-9.45 am.
Nagaswaram
Chinnamannur Vijayakarthikeyan & party

A very good concert.
What attracted me most was the Tirupugazh (Erumayileri vilaiyadum mugam) which he played at the end as a ragamalika at each line. The veerarasa was represented by Ataana for Marupadaisoorarai vadhaitthamugam and the Mangala bhava of Natakurinji most appropriately for Valliyai manam..and concluded the pugazh with a sober Madhyamavati!
I am not aware if anyone else has sung this Tirupugazh as a ragamalika.

TNS used to sing this Tirupugazh as a ragamalika. And I have heard a few other vidwans also sing this in ragamalika. TNS also used to sing Maaru padu soorarai in Athana. He used to conclude in Suruti. Other ragams I dont remember.

I too heard the Nagaswaram concert . Very good. In the first half he played Sree Ganapathinee, a composition of Ramaswamy Sivan in Kunthalavarali, Maravairi ramani and main song Kaumari Gauri velavali in Gowrimanohgari (Deekshitar).

Today morning (31 July) in Madras A, there was an old concert of Prema Hariharan accompanied by MSA and Ramanathopuram Kandaswamy. She is a disciple of Tanjavur S Kalyanaraman and I have heard her many very good concerts in 80s-90s. It was excerpts from an old concert. Her voice was in very good form and manodharmam elements super. The songs were Paramapanarama, Ramaneeyada and Tirupugazh.

Morning AIR broadcast of TNS Krishna's concert was a jumbled up one! Alapana in Darbar followed by a surati Tiruppavai and the Tiruppavai was repeated after the darbar krithi!

Badly missing the 7 AM concerts on FM GOLD - It used to offer the morning 8 45 AM concerts in FM quality... though now Chennai 'A' has improved its relay quality and RAAGAM is decent too to a little extent..

Does anyone have a old recording of U P Raju? it was aired in the 3 PM slot in FM GOLD in 2006. It featured V V Srinivasa Rao on the Violin and K V Prasad on the mridangam. The song list was:

1. Shanmukapriya Alaap followed by Siddhi Vinayakam - Muthuswamy Dikshithar
2. Jaya Jaya Padmanabha - Manirangu - Swathi Thirunal
3. Vasudevayani - Kalyani - Thyagaraja

If anyone has the above recording please do share. Its a very memorable one for me as I had it on tape but the full recording is not available. His Manirangu Alaap was very melodious and sadly, AIR did not broadcast that recording after that time. Also K V Prasad is my favorite so I long for this recording till date.
