Outstanding Concert in Chicago! Kumaresh as we know is outstanding and was his best. However, Jayanthi was a suprise. I have not heard such an authentic and traditional nadam on the veena for years. She was OUTSTANDING. Overall a great concert with Neyveli narayanan on the mridangam and the ghatam artist.
A great treat to the ears and the stage displyed an abundance of Saraswathi Kataksham :-)
Their concert in San Jose was very good too. Though I'm not a big fan of raga pravahams, etc., their Kalyani creation was really good. The Natakurinji/Shanmukhapriya RTP was another highlight though I felt that it was a tad too long. Loved the thanam on the veena.
