I was looking forward to listening to SJM in a live kucheri for a long time. So, managed somehow to reach on time just before he began the varnam. Right from that, it was such a wonderful experience. Sheer Bliss! I remembered our forumite grsastrigal’s words “Agmark paddhathi” kucheri! Truly it was! SJM’s self enjoyment and his happily giving equal time to AjithK to return every sangathi, swaram also sweetened the kucheri, I felt. I enjoyed immensely listening to Maragatha maNi varNa, although normally I am not so fond of varali. Sagara sayana vibho was a rasika’s request. Both Ajithkumar and Balakrishna K supported very well.
Overall, an EXxcellent kucheri.

very nice to hear a report of sreevalsan menon thank u sivakami. It is thyagaraja aradhana and in general menon usually drops a pancha ratna krithi. so y also had duddukugala.


IIRC grs said about vijaysiva kutcheri as agmark paddhati not menon. In any case both vs and menon are great musicians
