I continue to be amazed by Varmaji's exploratory nature. While a vast majority of musicians remain contant with
Koteeswara Iyer's 72 Melakartas, Varma ji goes and studies all 72 from his guru Dr.Balamuralikrishna and now unearths
this totally different kind of treasure in the form of Batish! I couldn't find Ganamurty, but found this haunting Manavati online.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lgklBdphZY0
A friend of mine sent me what he described as a Power Packed Performance by Power Star Pawan Kalyan today.
A catchy Telugu folk song by relatively unknown composer Etla Ramadasahttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jbFPxFs0jI4
only to find that Varmaji had taught the complete song at Perla, years ago!http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbEiLmhlzxc
