An exquisite experience this concert this was. The yamuna kalyani was so pleasing. Ananda bhairavi was so moving. A crisp and fast saveri that was so beautiful. A grand and majestic shankarabaranam. A pleasing sindhu bhairavi. The team gave a very wonderful concert

Do catch-up in YouTube. A prestine concert , lot of shantham and nimmadhi(peace) in music ( six keerthana only but complete in all aspects) Several aahaa moments in yamuna kalyani alapana, saveri neraval and shankarabharanam

Indeed. Just 6 kritis for the entire 2 hour 15 min concert. The rare shankarabaranam kriti with neraval at 'kAsuni vetukaga kanna ratnamu rIti' was too good and still lingering in my mind.

The yamuna kalyani with jambUpatE was too good

I heard upto Jambupathey (I thought she will sing Nanda Gopala of MD) but felt her voice was too harsh and non- cooperative this particulatlr day so gave the rest of the concert a pass.
Then switched on to Vivek Sadasivam instead - he sang v well.

Mami's vidwath came out in the Asaveri krithi and swarams itself.
Yamuna kalyani alapanai sounded a lot like Jambupathey but I could spot clear cut flashes of Kalyani as well. I believe that if an alapanai must be sung in this raga then need to borrow from Kalyani. But kudos to Maami her alapanai didn't sound for 1 sec any hindustani phrase.

I chanced upon a 10 mins clip of Abhishek's nereval and swarams for a kriti in the fb. The gimmicry and the speed made me tired ! :roll: :roll:

soon after listened to the webcast of this concert of Smt. Neela Ramgopal singing sankarabaranam. What a contrast and a blissful music it was ! SUPERB

Yes, there was a bit of voice problems (perhaps age factor) in the beginning of the concert, but that was overcome in sometime. Nevertheless, the music was BEAUTIFUL and PRISTINE !

Her voice was smooth, gentle and sweet after a short time.

A wonderful concert

Oh!okay
Will listen tonight the shankarabharanqm - is this the same kriti in which there is a western tune like chittaswaram? I have heard Sowmya sing it in radio kutcheri.

The listing in tyagaraja vaibavam, gives 6 caranams for this song, after the pallavi.

After the pallavi, the first caranam which starts with as 'kAsuni vetugaka..' was sung like the anupallavi. The second and last caranams were sung together as one long caranam.

Neela mami did not sing any chittai swaram to this kriti. i havent heard this kriti from anyone else. Faintly remember that Neela mami herself, sang it on some occasion earlier.

This one is having nice interesting western chittai after anupallavi and carnatic chittai after charanam. I think it is unique song with two diff chittaiswarams
