After more than a year, there was a concert of Prasanna here on Saturday. But, since that was in Villivakkam, an inaccessible area for me, I was not able to go for it. So, I didn’t want to miss today’s concert at any cost. I don’t have anything specific to write about except that, as expected, I absolutely enjoyed every moment of this concert. 🙂 How I wish more concerts of Prasanna happens here!

    I hear this guitar prasanna for the first time (hardly know any guys in carnatic music)…
    but i was in the impression that the guitar is never used to play carnatic music as it plays descrete notes(yes, string bending makes some continuity possible but not as smooth as a violin). Again the guitar being acoustic or electric makes a difference…anyways, it would be nice if i get a chance to listen to one of his performances…

    is this electric ganesha contain songs played with and electric guitar??

    P, PR, BSP is a great combination. I had the privilege of having them play for my wedding few years ago…..P is established, but BSP is very promising 🙂
