From start to finish, all the raagams in this concert were my favourites! The 7-min Mukhari alapana, 9+ min Harikambhoji alapana, 5+ min Surutti Alapana were all excellent! Awesome Mukhari swarams. I absolutely enjoyed his rendition of KaayaarohaNesham, KaaNa Vendum Laksham kaNgaL and Enduku nirdaya – If I remember correctly, he did a brief neraval for each of the 5 charanams and the anupallavi of Endukku nirdaya! I don’t think I have heard this one before. What a great composition it is! I did a bit of Googling today & got to know the meaning of this song.

Yet another excellent concert by Sanjay & Varadarajan! Looking forward to Sanjay’s next concert on Monday!

    Oh! 🙂 Yeah but I have been going for Sanjay’s concert there for the past few years and it has always been for less than 2.5 hrs only

    After the main (Harikambhoji) of course.

  2. Viswa

    Is there any audio provided?!
    I am searching for alapana mp3 files. The files can be of few minutes to lengthy one. Is there any website other than ssi!

    Oh ok, thanks….Wasn’t quite sure if Harikambhoji would have been main….with Sanjay you can’t quite say these days. And I believe Shri Rama Jayarama is quite common these days with him….have seen it on quite a few of his lists.

    SSI in music parlance stands for Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer, but am not sure if Viswa refers to the legend here….or maybe he refers to Shivkumar Kalyanaraman’s website which abounds with SSI Mama clips 🙂

    Btw, is one great source….
