I reached while they were singing danyAsi kriti. The neraval and swarams were handled very well. bEgaDa was elaborated very well with all the essentialites of the ragam displayed. The kriti was rendered beautifully with svarams at the pallavi line. The sAvEri kriti was rendered with a lot of bhavam.

The main course of the concert, shanmukhapriyA was elaborated very well by both the vocalists, Smt Varadachari started and elaborated over the madhyasthayI while Smt Purushottaman elaborated the tArasthayI and finished the AlApanai. They both sang a short, yet beautiful tAnam. The pallavi was set to an off beat tALam and the veterans sang the pallavi with utmost perfection bringing the rAgam bhavam in each sangati. The mandatory anulOmam pratilOmam were present, followed by svarams.

The violinst was good in accompanying the vocalists. She did a good job in all parts and especially during the pallavi she was also accurate in adhering to tALam without loosing the sAhitya bhAvam.

The mridangist gave good support and was ably supported by the ghatam artists. They played a nice tani as well.
