This kucheri was on a Saturday. With a large number of fans for the T. Bros here at Hyd, there was no question of getting a seat, unless we went in early. Yes, it was so... Once the artistes were seated on the dais & the troubles with the acoustic settings sorted out (to the satisfaction of the artistes after nearly 45 min or so), the concert commenced at around 7.10 PM. The tempo picked-up after the varnam and kept the audience engaged till the end, which was rounded off by the audience with a standing ovation for nearly 2-3 min. Only during the kriti, sAnthamu lekha, what was sAntham and hence Sowkhyam till the charanams, became otherwise after those prolonged rounds of extended swarams. Some felt it spoiled the whole mood of the song, the lyrics and the ragam that has been selected by the composer to be sung. Then someone joked saying, perhaps this was an added effort (like the proverb goes, ‘Two mangoes in one shot’) to show how life can become asowkhyam when there is no santham. Special applause to young Sai Raksheet, another youngster from Kanyakumari amma’s school for the very sweet accompaniment and the cheerful, everlasting smile. Keep it up!

Excellent Mridangam by their father Sri. Mohan garu as always and Kovai Suresh on ghatam elevated the concert. It is heartening to note that, even in Hyd, more and more youngsters are coming and staying throughout and go to throng the stage to interact with the artistes afterwards. I observed this trend not only that day, even other days, such as Jayanthi Kumaresh, J A Jayant and others too.. Thanks to social media and the variety of uploads of snippets or full concerts or lessons etc., as well as the numerous live web-casts!

Really Revathi ?? For RTP?
I find Revathi ragam to be very one note feel
Dunno why Kerala artistes have affinity for ragas like Revathi or Behag for RTP

I prefer RTP always in carnatic ragams
