V Sumithra, Nada Inbam

V Sumithra at Nada Inbam

Dikshitar Jayanthi concert

slokam
vathapi ganapathim
sri nathadi guruguho
arunachala natham
hastivadanaya
pranathathiharaya
sri vidya rajagopalam
sri kamalambhikayah param nahi re

It was the day after Smt Kalpakam Swaminathan had left us. One was totally engrossed in sorrow and with each MD kriti rolling one after another, it was just not possible to keep oneself composed.

The concert was filled with gems of MD. The elaborations of mAyAmALavagauLa were good. The AlApanai of navarOj was very interesting to listen to. The main bhairavi was absolutely esoteric.

Dr R Hemaltha, Music Club IIT Madras

Dr Hemalatha fiddle concert at CLT

sahana varnam
gam ganapathe
sadhinchane
suajana jeevana
saundara rajam
niravathi sukhada
enthuku peddala

The alapanai of Arabhi and khamAs were very educative and showed the essential phrases. The shankarabaranam was majestic. The highlight of the program was the commentary by Dr Hemalatha, where she mentioned the differences in handling of ragas by each of the trinity and contemperory usages. She highlighted the special old-school phrases which are not all that oft heard in concerts these days.
