My observation
An excellent concert for 18o mts. He has thorough knowledge of the krithis he is rendering. Without spoiling the padham he does niraval. Spashtam with clear accent . Hemiige did his part as usual with his vidwat.. Mirudangam Srivatsan played well and his Thani was crisp. Closely followed with a smiling face throughout.
Rendering of RTP Ragams in ragamalika and Pallavi in different Ragas was found to be unique. There was absolute alignment of eduppu at every time which Hemigge also replied. Immediately after Elaborate Kalyani he took up Karakarapriya without a break.
The concerts of SIFA are always arranged in different venue reason not known. May be non availability of auditorium. This can be avoided by well planning a year ahead.
The present concert was inside Stanford University and one has to walk nearly one Kilometer to reach the hall since most of the route is bicycle zone. The huge hall was full and Rasikas sat till the end. The 180 mts concert was extremely nice.

Corrections are invited from Rasikas who attended with more details.

Thank you for your review! RKM and Hemmige Srivatsan must have been just lovely. Alas, I was unable to attend this concert. But I'm not all that worried because I'm going to catch RKM in Tustin in a couple of weeks! Very excited.

B Srivatsan mrudangist name is new to me . I am assuming he is based out of US. May i know bit more about him?. IMHO having concerts in venues like Stanford is even better idea , more new faces will come in and they are young too and they will add better long term stickiness . THank you thanjavooran for your review, if possible change the title either you or mods.

is this a free or a ticketed concert

Thanjavooran, thanks for your lovely review. Glad that you are getting chances of hearing RKM in U S, which many times you are missing in Chennai. Have a nice time overseas.
