A very very fine concert. A spectacular Begada and Shanmugapriya.
Great Team.
A fitting tribute to TRS for the manodharma sangeetham.

Akkarai - Absolute class.
Harikumar & Rajaganesh - excellent support and unobtrusive.

Thanam in shanmugapriya clearly the highlight of the concert.
Ragamalika thanam - kannada/Ahiri

A wonderful concert. The voice of KBMK was in good form. Most of the songs TRS numbers. I don’t know whether TRS has sung Tanavari tanamu. He has made his indelible mark in the rendition of Thyagarajaya Namste, though.

In Nidamoru taram, many porutham swarams and swarakasharams with ni da were intelligently presented.

The alapana of Begada and Shanmugapriya were excellent with roaring manodharmam, flashing brighas, long akara sangathis all used judiciously to present a comprehensive picture of the raga. The tanam in Ahiri and Kannada, very unusual, was presented in a aesthetic manner.

I expected a varnam composed by TRS or at least the Behag varnam. That was not there.

Akkarai Subbalakshmi played very well. Her swara returns and raga alapanas top notch. Her alapana of Shanmugapriya deserves special appreciation. The percussion team embellished the concert significantly. B.Harikumar with his long experience followed the kritis admirably and the tani was much enjoyed by the audience.

The concert lasted for two and half hours.

The pallavi was coined by TRS- BMK announced. IN a very tricky talam, the entire team presented the pallavi with precision and aesthetics.
