Great coverage to a legend unparalleled in Carnatic Music and I wonder they are any living artists who are skilled in Vocal (CM and Hindustani), mrdangam and violin. I love his statement “The survival of Carnatic music depends upon whether or not musicians keep the purity of notes,” he says, pointing out that if light music is so popular today, it is because the notes are in their pure forms." How true!

Bumping this thread up too, in the context of the great mridanga vidwans we have been discussing.

Here is a beautiful recording of BMK/MSG/TVG (all very young in their thirties) with this immortal Nannu kanna thalli.
https://soundcloud.com/ramesh-balasubra ... nna-thalli
TVG's nadham, his thoppi usage, sarva laghu and anticipation of sangatis. All superb!

Just to illustrate the timelessness of this music, compare with this octagenarian TVG with octagenarian BMK from earlier this year.

It is really something when musicians have a 50+ year history of collaboration!

Dear Rsachi,

I think you are in someway related to Mr.Srikantaih of PARVATi.I admire the excellent concerts held under PARVATI.
I am just curious to know why PARVATI was discontinued????

Mr. Srikantiah continues to conduct concerts as the K.Putturao Memorial series since 2011. It is from Aug.31 to Sep.4 this year at Jaganmohan Palace, Mysore. A rich fare is expected. You can get details of the previous two festivals in the Parvathi blog. This year's programme will be announced very shortly.
