Homage to Pt. Ravi Shankar by Paul Livingstone @ SREENI ON STAGE

I was lost in a different world with rain god, the cold breeze and the roaring Ganges adding to essence of the evening. I felt delighted to have been part of the concert.

Final – Day 6 and Overnight : SPIC MACAY – 27th National Convention, 2012 @ NITK Surathkal, Karnataka

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!

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…
