It was a good concert. Smt. Sowmya chose pieces very carefully to make it a string of popular but yet not very often heard in concert circuits. The rAga improvisations were quite innovative and involved very many phrases which gave new perspectives to both the ragams that were elaborated. They were both very elaborate. The neraval was done in a chaste fashion as well. The swarams were all good. Those in aTANA and pADi were just amazing, while rAmapriyA and bhairavi were very good as well. The accompanists were very good and gave sensible support to the main artist.
