Mandolin Srinivas’s Purnashadjam

Mandolin Srinivas’ playing has always left me amazed! This one is no exception. Lavanya Rama in Purnashadjam has always been one of my favourites. I am listening to this composition, Gananayakam, for the first time today and it has got me hooked to it now! I must say, this week has been a musically great week for me. 😉

Please listen to this one even if you are not a Carnatic music lover. I am sure you will enjoy it.

A little more than a year back, right out of college into the corporate world with no experience whatsoever, having to stay away from home in a new city for 4 full months, sharing a room with a person whom I didn’t know at all, spending days and nights in front of the computer learning new things on one hand and making new friends out of the teammates in project on the other, the training turned to be one of the most unforgettable experiences in my life! The past two days I am feeling very nostalgic thinking about my training days thanks to the songs, Giriraja Suta and Enta Muddo by Mandolin Srinivas! It was during my training that I became crazy about these songs and listening to those now has brought back all the pleasant memories!

Concerts – Part 1

As I didn’t write about the concerts I went to for quite sometime now, here you go. I am planning to write in parts about all the concerts I went to till now. Those who are not interested in Classical music, please skip these posts!

Concerts at Music Academy:

Lalgudi G.J.R.Krishnan & Vijayalakshmi – Violin Duet on 22/12/2006
This happens to be the first concert of theirs that I am going to. Each and every song/alapana they played were so good. The raaga chosen for elaboration was Todi and RTP was in Vachaspati. I now want to go to more concerts of theirs.
