LIVE MUSIC PROGRAM

It is....... after a long  time that we  were attending a live music program...... first in Bangalore...... in Chowdiah Memorial Hall at Malleshwaram.......... it was quite mesmerizing classical presentation of violin, sarangi, mridungam, tabla, piano and kanjira.......
The program was organized by Lalgudi Vijayalakshmi, daughter, disciple of Legend violinist, composer,  Lalgudi Jayaraman....... as ARPANAM ...... tribute to GURU......
Started on time ..... with lot of classical music lovers...... mostly elderly from Tamilnadu..... obviously, Bangalore is home for them............ with the presentation of flute ensemble by a group of flutists from GOKULUM school..... low, pleasing and melodious.......
then..... half an hour instrumental music program of Lalgudi Viji on Violin, Murad Ali on Sarangi, Arun Prakash on Mridungum, Praveen Rao on tabla....... was an excellent presentation, blend, fusion and back-up....... simply superb...... though I can not elaborate on the intricasies of pieces presented..... called THILLANA......
Short stage program follows..... for release of CD..... music biggies on stage...... Lalgudi Jayaraman, T V  Gopalakrishnan, and Lalgudi Viji....... and Shri Harshananda Swamiji from Ramakrishna Mutt......for blessings....and Dr Suma Sudheendra.... president of Chowdiah Memorial..... for a short speech....
then the Vocal concert follows..... with Lalgudu Viji again, accompanied by sarangi, piano, tabla, mridungum and kanjira...... good voice and melodious singing........classical,,,,,,
Then,,,,,, half hour dance tribute by Nirupama, Rajendra and the group from Abhinava Dance company...... was really enchanting, refreshing..... steps, expressions, movements, stage set up, lighting..... excellent.....
It was an evening well spent...... drove back home......
