I had been to two concerts on the same day. I walked into Ragasudha a little late for the following concert.

nija mukha rAmA - kIravANi (RNS)

mOkshamu galadA - sAramati (R)

The varNam was just finishing. Kritis were well rendered. kAmbhOji was ok. kIravANi AlApanai was good. The neraval svarams exercises for both kAmbhOji and kIravANi and the svarams from sArangA were good in parts.

I left during the sAramati and went to the concert listed below.
