7-RTP in Darbari Kanada. Pallavi – “Govardhana Giridhara Gopika Manohara”. Talam Khanda Triputa. Swarakalpana [Darbari Kanada, Revathi, Behag, Nattakurinji and Darbar]
Both Mayamma and Sarasa Sama Dhana started at the Anupallavi line, a practice that has not been common in recent concerts here that I attended.
For me, the high point was the Dabari Kanada RTP. The beauty of the raga was aurally sketched for us with its alliance to two systems of music. With his feet firmly in the Carnatic framework, the flights into Hindustani taans were seamless and impressive.
In the last concert that I attended of Saketaraman, he started 3 krithis with the anupallavi .Nice of Suryaprakash taking a darbAri for a MMI dedicated concert , the contrast is there and one can always see how sarvalaghu is slowly evolving into more and more rAgas over a period of half century...
Tx for your review , looks like you had a front to back feast of two concerts
