Yet to listen to tODI. kanagangi and mandari and then mAnasa guruguha - very brilliant take off.

mAnasa guruguha: I hoped he would have done svarams @ natva SrIguru caraNam like his father ( again I did not listen to it, but a paramarasika Ekalavya SiShya talk about it in conversations and sing some snippets from some MA concert!). Ok, next time some time.

Mandari , same kriti has been heard in yet another venue with Bharat Sundar as well (Ranjani Sabha Nanganallur) this lockdown season. Both very effective in their own ways. TNS Krishna brings his school stamp. pannaga bharaNa Siva is a well laid out sAhitya in the tALa krama. A nereveller's delight and svaverveller's one too, with much revelation of music. Muthiah Bhagavathar na Muthiah Bhagavathar thaan ( one and only Dr HMB!) - nalla vivaramaana sangItam (good intricate music)!

I loved especially the syncopation by Bharatvaj doing 4 over KhaNDa cApu in vEda SAstra gnAna. Have heard this until cassette went bad with TNS and Thiru C. S Murugabhoopathy avargal.

Some quick comments.

A brilliant, scholarly concert praising the glory of Lord Subrahmanya.
Congrats to TNSK, the young team of accompanists and Parivadini.

No doubt he learned his father's skills, but has a much nicer voice. A lovely concert.

A very weighty concert. Grand like a kalyana sappadu in the bani of his legendary father cum Guru. So many kritis, so many viruthams suitable for each song and the Kanda shashti. Many viruthams I have never heard before. Imaginative alapanas of Mandari, Thodi and Vachaspathi. This Mandari kriti was popularised by TNS. Karthikeya Gangeya is TNS masterpiece. Yet to hear the RTP. Thanks to Parivadini for arranging the concert of TNSK. In fact, during the covid period, even though the concerts are in abundance, I never heard one concert of TNSK. Happy to inform that during this music season, he is singing the 4 hour concert in Mudhra.
