Lovely concert that showcased Vignesh Ishwar's powerful voice and range. Beautiful selection of rakti ragas with the mukhari alapana being top class - truly representative of the Semmangudi bani!
Soothing and melodious accompaniment by L Ramakrishnan and subtle yet energetic percussion by Praveen, both complementing the main vocalist and enhancing the concert experience.

Super . Ideally 3 and half hours is the best . The submain , main , RTP and tani needs that much cooking time. ShuruTTi is a very difficult ragam to elaborate as pallavi, the venue sydney is a spin(shurutti) track so apt selection by Vignesh. Apart from vignesh rocking for sure ,Tanjore Praveen kumar and L Ramakrishnan would have rocked too.

Vignesh usually sings neraval for Pancharathnams
Narada gana sabha he sang neraval for Jagadanandakaraka - in line omakara panjara
Now here in Sri Pancharatnam for bhagawata Veda purana that line
High speed neraval that too
Is it common to sing neraval for Pancharathnams?Not sure anyone done it before??
