I went on time but due to some family exigency had to leave at the end of third number . Saketharaman started with a distinct lalgudi stamp with a lovely varnam . The contours of Kannada are distinct with Lalgudi clearly disambiguating from begada .Saketharaman also proceeded with a volley of swaras which were just there . I would not say the team blended that well . THe next in reetigowlai was in the zone of excellence in the swaras but during krithi bit more reetigowlai distinct rasa would have made me bit more happier . GNB created magic with vandanadhArini , the raga alapana was well done by saketaraman with great brighas. The song and swaras had its GNB share of exuberance and I was thinking saketharaman was settling very well with the vandanadharini. The experienced and seasoned narayanan along with L ramakrishnan were giving great support .L Ramakrishnan could have avoided the same long return in succession for swaras for both reetigowlai and vandanadharini , but saketh insisted that.I did not hear that much Sunil . Unfortunately i had to leave at the end of third song with a very satisfied vandanadharini.
pushing this review so that some one else can write about the rest of the concert . I am sure there were forumites there.
Review the latest concerts you have listened to.
