Could someone describe Shuddh Sarang to me, in terms of arohanam, avarohanam, and any visesha proyongams/anya swarams? ever since I heard Sri Ravikiran's thillana in this ragam in Singapore, it has always befuddled me...

Thanks Manisubramaniyan.
I am sorry to have missed both the spring concerts this season due to work related travel.

Thanks Tanjavooran, Mahavishnu and RajeshNat for the kind words.
Usually Mahavishnu writes eloquent reviews and we (rasikas) missed him for this concert. I expected other rasikas who attended to chip in with a full review (let us wait and see!)
Rajesh, Sankritilaya is a national tour organizer and as such arranges local bay area concerts for their tour artists only. Sankritilaya works with other local organizations in other cities, and works with SIMA in LA. But most carnatic music organizations have their own logistics (time, place, and availability of artist at that time), as well as budget and so unfortunately you end up missing some artists every year; next time...

Sorry about the inrodinately delayed update:
Refer to a reference to the Album of this great concert in Album/Recording Review Discussion group.
Just the MelaRagamalika (she sang the 5th and 6th Chakras) alone was worth the concert.
