Pure Talent

In Tune : Bangalore Brothers performing Carnatic vocal.

The evening saw music lovers in large numbers who had come to savour pure classical music.  People started coming in as the concert progressed and by the time Sanjay Subramanyan performed, the auditorium was packed.

Uma Kumar commenced her performance with a varnam in Darbari raga. Her main item was Marivere Dikkevaru Ramayya in Latangi raga by Patnam Subramania Iyer. She concluded her recital with a thillana by Swathi Thirunal Maharaja.

“I am really happy with the kind of response I received today from the audience. Whenever we sing classical music, only a small section of the audience can understand it. But today, most of the members in the audience were familiar with classical music. So, I was able to deliver much better,” Uma said after her concert.

The second recital was by Vidwan Hariharan and Ashok popularly known as Bangalore Brothers in the music fraternity. The duo commenced their performance with Samininne, a varnam set to Pantuvarali raga.

After that they sang Thyagaraja’s compositions Makelara and Koluvamaragada showcasing creative expositions of the ragas. Their concert concluded with an electrifying Purandara Dasa’s devotional song Acharavillada Nalige.

The duo mesmerised the audience with their extraordinary musical skills. It was a perfect concert for casual listeners as well.

Sanjay Subramanyan began his concert with the composition Merusamana in Mayamalavagowla raga. He performed a raga thana pallavi to the song Neerajakshi Kamalakshi which was the main item of his recital. Though all the artistes adhered to the core tenets of the classical music, they also presented some light songs to enthrall the crowd.
