#1 TMK's first concert - here is the song list!!!

Post by shreyas »

Hey everyone!

As you might know by know, I am a big fan of TMK.

I can't remember where I found this, but here is the songlist for his very first concert. I believe his two good friends: Sri R K Sriramkumar and Sri K Arun Prakash are accompanying him.

Sir
Hats off. I know someone who knows EVERY song ever sung BY Sanjay Subrahmanyan in MMU in the correct sequence and with details of accompaniment. He is such a big fan Sruti asked him to write about this.

Musicians may not admit it, but their fans are the ones who really make them superstars.

The mridangist is listed as T R Sundaresan, who is one of the legendary mridangam ex-gurus at the Singapore Indian Fine Arts Society, having produced a legion of high quality students over his tenure at SIFAS. He also played the mridangam non-stop for 42 hours in 2005, accompanying a variety of artistes on mridangam (and switching to kanjira and morsing sometimes).

Jagadanandakaraka and Guruleka have unusual places in this as compared to regular concerts

Here is the full page, including a picture.

Wherever his resume is given, it says that his first concert was for the Spirit of Youth in 1988 (October) which is how I surmised that this was THE FIRST one.

Oh! That's interesting to note. Yet everywhere it says his first concert was for Spirit of Youth 1988.

Was this a full-fledged Kutcheri of 1-2 hours?

See I told u - so this is not TMK's first concert after all. Anyone can guess looking at the list that it is quite odd for a first concert.
What's the point of this thread even if no one here has an idea when / which was TMK's first concert.
Who cares anyway! Chumma time waste

Shri Seetharama Sarma, Guru of T.M. Krishna :-

“Krishna’s first concert was in 1988 at the Spirit of Youth series at the Music Academy. I was hesitant to let him perform, but agreed on the insistence of T.T. Vasu. This concert during Navaratri turned out to be his arangetram, where he impressed one and all with a very fine performance. Krishna was a picture of confidence, he had no stage fear whatsoever. He was adjudged the best performer that year and he received the award from sitar maestro Pandit Ravi Shankar. Following this he was placed in the noon slot at the Academy during the December season that year.”
