T M Krishna – Seshadripuram College – March 29, 2015

It was the first time that I could finally watch T M Krishna live! What a performer he is!! Just adds that dynamism along with experimentations all the way..

Sri T M Krishna was accompanied by Sri HK Venkatram on Violin, Sri H S Sudhindra on Mridangam and Sri Omkar Rao on Ghatam.

  1. Intha soukhyamani – Kapi
  2. Ragam – Tanam – Varnam (Nava Raaga Maalika)
  3. Upacharamulu Chesevaru – Bhairavi
  4. Pranatha Arthimbhaje – Janjhooti
  5. Irakkam VaraamalĀ – Behag
  6. Vanita ro ee vannelela ne – Ananda bhairavi (Javali)
  7. Deva Deva Kalayamithe – Mayamalavagowla
  8. Couldn’t understand (sorry šŸ˜¦ )
  9. Pavamana suthudu – Sowrashtram

Kapi elaboration both by vocals and Violin was beautiful. Nava raaga maalika Ragam, Tanam and Varnam was amazing. TMK acknowledged HKV that “if he is playing so well like this, how can I sing!”.

Notable point is that he did Niraval for 3 compositions with subtle delicacy in expressions. Overall, a treat to the ears. Again, what a performer!!

My experiences attending Carnatic Music concerts

One of the best things I have been doing since relocating to Bengaluru is, attending several Music concerts – mostly of Carnatic genre. A lot of friends have been suggesting me to put the experiences in writing, so that it will be good to see them all at some time in the future.

Going by that, I plannedĀ to start this exercise and let’s see how it goes!!

PS: I must admit, I don’t know anything about Music – I am just a beginner in Carnatic Violin. So please excuse and correct me if I write anything wrong!
