Web-cast of Jaya TV Marghazhi Mahotsavam

Post #1 by Sundara Rajan » 16 Dec 2010, 07:33

Jaya TV commenced its webcast of the program tonight here in the U.S. at 5:50 p.m. Eastern Standard Time for an hour. Jaya TV programs are neither listed correctly nor broadcast on specified times here ! Suspecting this I had my TV turned on to Jaya channel from 5:00 pm on ! To days program was Nadaswaram concert by Thirukovilur Babu & Kumar. The songs presented were:
SiddivinAyakam anisam(?)-- Shanmukapriya
Brochevarevarura-Kamas
Bhuvaneswariya- Mohanakalyani
After the commercial break at this juncture, the sangeetha gnAnasUnyam that editd the program left out the karaharapriya song (?), but left the Thani that followed ending with the last line of the composition.
Kaliyugavaradan-BrindavanasAranga
Kurai onRum illai- Ragamalka

It was announced at the end that tomorrow's program will tbe hat of Malladi Brothers.

Mahganapathim anisam in shanmugapria?

Thank you, Chalanata, for the correction. Because it was instrumental, I could only guess the words. I wrote mahaganapatim anisam instead of siddivinayakam anisam. I have edited my post accordingly.

Disappointing performance by Malladi brothers. Too much "gas" in the explanations. They were rattling sanskrit slokas to sound "profound" when the same content can be found in the simplest of translations. There was so much unprofessionalism in the concert. The younger was sipping water/coffee even before the first song had ended. They were referring to the notes for songs like "Manasa yetulo" and "Dudukugala." I thought these telegus would atleast know such popular Tyagaraja kritis by heart. A real shame! The elder brother was actually flipping through the pages of a diary after the commencement of "Manasa guruguha" searching for the lyrics! Finally there was an alapana of Bageshwari for about 5 minutes followed by a slokam in the same raga with the same phrases rendered again! Maybe they were emphasising the dual nature of life or the singing of each sangati twice in a kriti :)

The theme was supposed to be "tatvam". In my opinion, the theme was not clearly enunciated and the compositions chosen did not tie in with the theme. From a musical standpoint, energy, synchronization and coordination was missing between the brothers. They were frequently referring to their notes. I felt they were simply not engaged in the concert. A very lackadaisical performance from the brothers. I expected more from them. :(

Yes to all. I expected a better program from them. There was a silly question trying to relate the theme "thathvam"( concept ) with the mahA vAkya " thath thvam asi " . The brothers' answer was wanting in correct explanation. I was pleasantly surprised that the brothers have learned a new Tamil song ! Theirs was the second broadcast: a nagaswaram performance was broadcast the previous day.

To ask a musician to explain Tatvam Asi or advaitha concept is like asking for the recipe of badir bheni or bisi bela holi to a table waiter or expecting a bookshop salesperson to explain cardiac arrythmyas or principles of rocket propulsion. It is the fundamental mistake of the organizers of Margazhi mahothsav.It is unfortunate that the musicians are made the scapegoat with sheepish look. in public gaze.They could not do justice to their own art and they are not to blame.poor Malladi bros.!!

You are quite right! Musicians (present day) are not trained in philosophy. In olden times they had to learn vedas and upanishads along with music and had gurus who were themselves great scholars. The present day practitioners are too shallow and many do not even know the meaning of what they sing! (poor language skills). Of course they are good in musical skills through assiduous practice, which is all what the Rasikas can expect from them!

Wait, how are the Margazhi organisers to blame? It is my understanding that musicians choose the theme of their own presentation. They could've chosen a theme they were more comfortable with. I, too, found the program less than satisfying.

Thank you, vkailasam, for your efforts in bringing us these concerts.

Mr.Vekatakailasam,
Your are doing an admirable job to upload the JayaTV margazhi maha utsav concerts so promptly in Rasikas.org. Our family now in U.S far away is proud to view the concerts regularly and immediately in the 'suda suda form' as we used to enjoy it in India, and thanks for all your efforts.

Very inspired singing by Abhishek! My first time listening to him and I was very impressed! It was a nice touch to alternate the mridangam and tabla for the sadinchane sahityam and swara pieces. The tabla accompaniment for Mukhari did not gel well in my opinion. However for the Mira bhajan (Hari guna Gavat) and the last piece Krishna Nee Begane Baro, Anand's accompaniment was apt for Abhishek's singing.

I know Abhishek is Sri Palghat Raghu's grandson. Is by any chance Anand also Sri Palghat Raghu's grandson?

Thanks
Excellent spirited concert! The youth are doing a good job of proomoting CM..
Though short the swara prasthaaram in the tharangam is spell-binding - literally musical waves!
Congrats to Abhishek and his team...

Kamas raga alapana had some sprinkle of anniya swara notes sounding a little bit like hamir kalyani. Abishek! you are a great artist! Please excercise some restraint.
