Ghazal programme at Tirumala temple

By Our Staff Reporter

TIRUPATI Sept. 29. Ghazals? That too on Lord Balaji? Unbelievable, but true. A melodious ghazal performance was part of the cultural programmes on the occasion of the ongoing annual Brahmotsavam of the Lord of Seven Hills, of course, along with Carnatic music and instrumental events.

The ghazal concert, said to be the first of its kind in praise of Lord Venkateswara, that too during His Brahmotsavam, was rendered by M.Vasudevachari of Srikakulam at Annamacharya kalamandir here on Sunday evening.

The ghazals were penned under the package, `Sri Govinda ghazal ganalahari', by him, who has so far given 1,600 performances throughout the country. Local children gave a splendid dance performance at Mahati auditorium here.

Malasri in the role of Krishna and other kids made the event interesting. The former students of the TTD-run SV College of Music and dance providing the orchestral support was another highlight. Prabhat Kalavidaru, a Bangalore-based cultural troupe, gave a scintillating performance on `Srikrishna Vaijayanti'.

The 40-strong troupe, headed by T.G.Venkateshachar, had performed earlier many times in the temple town at ISKCON temple during Janmashtami festivals.
