#1 TMK and Sanjay @ SMF 2018

Post by MV » 12 Jun 2018, 01:41

I arrived late and left early to the Music at Sydney. Like a good guest, but a bad rasika :lol:

Anyway, thanks to all the artistes and organisers for putting up a wonderful event with lots of lovely music. I will just write about the 2 evening slots on Sat and Sun which were stand outs for me. TMK took us on a soulful journey in his own style with the song list all jumbled up, the accompanists sitting in not the usual order and everyone (including TMK himself, I suppose) not knowing where we were headed. But that magical voice which traversed 3 octaves from the absolute lowest Shadjam to the absolute highest Shadjam without a tremor was goosebump material as well as many phrases and pauses. Lets just say it was an evening celebrating Music.

Now Sanjay took us on a traditional journey. Brova bArama with his signature KS and an absolutely magnificient Shankarabaranam had 'Master Class' stamped all the way. But the Melakarta Ragamalika by MD 'Pranatharthi hara' is the one I am here for. I have heard an old recording of MS sing all 72 ragas. Sanjay covered 2 chakras at SMF. He probably owes it to the CM fraternity to put out a recording of the full composition. :)

MV,
You are something! The little flightless bird takes a kangaroo's leap and lands in the mainland for the song festival!
Two stars, two paths, both their performances relished by you, which goes to say: music is music, and if that alone is the artiste's focus, other accoutrements can be forgotten when that particular frame of time comes alive with the magic of music :) Kudos to TMK and Sanjay, and those other artistes who made the festival a treat.
Can't wait to hear from other rasikas who listened to many concerts, with song lists and impressions...

Arasi :D

This kiwi took flight at the last minute and the kangaroo leap paid rich dividends :lol:

I am told that I missed a fabulous RTP in Kapi by RaGa. ;)

Thank you Sir. I wasn't sure and just assumed it had to be MD who would do a piece like that.

Some mischievous curiosity. Did the two artistes attend each other's concert?
Now, like 'Sizzling Sisters', review of two concerts in one post seems to be the in thing!
