It was a very enjoyable concert. From the word go, it was classical music at its best. With every ragam and every kriti it was only getting better. The choice of pieces and rAgams was really interesting. And the ideas that were presented were really awesome. What to mention and what to not, one is in a fix!

The AlApanais of vasantA and suddha danyAsi, the neraval in varALi, the slOkam, especially the sAvEri.. gosh.. i could go on and on writing..

The team was just awesome. Prisitine Semmangudi sangeetham at its best! A treat it was...
