Just that morning, I was telling a friend that I wished Sanjay sings chittham irangaadha since it had been a really long time since I last heard him sing it in a concert and guess what? Sanjay did sing it! Wouldn’t you feel so happy and elated if the singer sings the song that you wished he would sing in that day’s concert? πŸ™‚

To me, the best part of the concert was the swarams in Kanada. 3 minutes of pure bliss it was!! Alapanas are what I look forward to in Sanjay’s concerts these days and needless to say, Kanada, Natabhairavi & Behag alapanas in this concert were absolutely brilliant.

Can’t wait to hear Sanjay sing today! πŸ™‚

    I loved the Kanada too,especially the violin and for some reason,always like hearing Sanjay sing Karpagame!but BAH!I missed the first hour yesterday because I couldn’t get off work!!but made it in time for the thodi, so i guess i shouldn’t crib too much πŸ™‚

    Oh! Then you missed Sahana & Gangeyabhushani?? It’s easy to say that you shouldn’t crib but you can’t help doing that if you miss Sanjay’s concert. πŸ˜‰ The Todi was awesome πŸ™‚

    “Engum Niraindirukkum En Deivam” is in Kurunji. Pity that I could not attend the master’s concert on 31-Oct at NGS.

    BTW, do you have the details of the December season concerts for “the one and only master”?

    I have heard many say that it is in Navaroj. I actually don’t know which raagam it is in. πŸ˜•

    You can get Sanjay’s December Season schedule from his blog. πŸ™‚
