Heave downpour and power failure did not stop T V Gopalakrishnan from rendering Vatapi with mobiles guiding

The fitting finale has one of the best Vocalists I have ever heard, Pt. Venkatesh Kumar, rendering JAGO Mohan Pyare. He is the answer to our prayers. He is in the finest mold of Pt. Bhimjesh Joshi, Pt. Kumara Gandharva, Pt. Mallikarjuna Mansur… and shares the schooling from Dharwad. I do no have any doubt about this nursery of Hindustani classical music with every home and street having tens of such talents!

Answer to our prayers - Pt. Venkatesh Kumar (Hindustani Vocal)

I will continue to go backwards on the overnight and then finally finish with all presentations of the intensives that ran through the entire day 6.

Pts. Rajan & Sajan Mishra (Hindustani Vocal)
Vid. U Srinivas (Carnatic Mandolin)
Us. Shahid Pervez (Sitar)
Vid T V Gopalakrishna (Carnatic Vocal)
Us.Wasifuddin Dagar (Dhrupad)
Pt. Venkatesh Kumar (Hindustani Vocal)

This posting on SREENI On SPIC MACAY STAGE covers the overnight – at Natcon, SPIC MACAY, Surathkal. I will do a couple of more postings in mind, one on intensives and the other on life around the convention. I am keen to do it in the next twenty four hours. Kindly await for that interesting posting…
