Wah! Violin maestro Mysore M. Manjunath and flutist Praveen Godkhindi at the jugalbandi in Mysore on Sunday.
MYSORE: All roads led to the JSS College on Ooty Road here on Sunday.
The reason was obvious: the Suttur Math, which manages the JSS Mahavidyapeeta, had organised a unique jugalbandi of violin maestro Mysore M. Manjunath and noted flutist Praveen Godkhindi.
The soulful music came with the duo enthralling one and all.
It was a treat to the ears indeed. ‘Beladingala Sangeetha’, the math’s monthly moonlight music programme, received overwhelming response with music buffs coming in big numbers to listen in to Mr. Manjunath, a native of Mysore, and Mr. Praveen, a popular face on Kannada television.
Due to the threat of rain, the music concert was shifted to the auditorium at JSS Collegefrom Suttur Math, on the foothills of Chamundi. Notwithstanding, the music lovers swooped on the new venue and filled the auditorium.
The crowd was such that it spilled outside the auditorium and the people were fortunate to hear the performance by moonlight.
The duo received a loud applause.
