#1 Ranjani & Gayatri @ Melbourne AUS, 23rd Feb'13

Post by [email protected] » 23 Feb 2013, 19:36

Ranjani and Gayatri presented a delightful concert at Kel Watson Theatre, Melbourne. It was their second concert in the city on this tour.
Starting with a simple and pleasing Kalyani Varnam, they displayed their dexterity in style with a variety of songs.

The main Kriti was a Tyagaraja composition Lalite sripravridha in Bhairavi, which was followed by the lightning fast composition in Pashupathipriya ragam, and a scintillating RTP on Khamas, viruttam and the most awaited Ranjani Gayatri Signature Abhang .

They also sang Krishna nee begane upon request by the audience, which brought goosebump, probably on everyone in the packed crowd.

Vanajakshi - kalyani - Adi
Sakalagriha balanine- atana - khandachapu
Shri valli devasenapathe - natabhairavi - Adi
Enna ganu ramabhajana - pantuvarali - roopakam
Chitham irangatha - sahana - misrachapu
Lalite sripravridha - Bhairavi - Adi
Saravanabhava - pashupathipriya - Adi
RTP Khamas - brochevare varura - khandajathi tripuda - Ragamalika on saranga, ritigowla, revati, jog
Viruttam :Maalada - shanmugapriya, brindavana saranga, behag
Aadum chidambaramo - behag
Krishna nee begane (yamunakalyani)- on request
Abhang - sada mazhe dola- Mishra markauns

They were accompanied by H.N.Bhaskar on Violin and Delhi Sairam on Mridangam.
It was the same evening when the city rocked on a white night, and Shreya Ghoshal stole the gala desi crowd; Melbourne's multicultural blend and trend are truly exceptional!
