When tomorrow comes ...

USTAD ZAKIR Hussain, Ustad Bismillah Khan, Pundit Ravi Shankar and Pundit Hari Prasad Chaurasia, Kadri Gopalnath and Keith Peters have all been there. The same stage, this year, will bear K. Bhaskaran and T.M. Krishna, as they unleash the Classical Goddess on the country's largest student gathering. Folks, Saarang's waiting to happen.

Bhaskaran will play the flute to Krishna's voice at IIT Madras on January 21, beginning 7-30 p.m. They will play for all those who are willing to listen. For, the inaugural concert of IIT's Saarang, hosted by E-Serve International, is free.

Bhaskaran has had extensive training as a flautist under Mayavaram Papa and S. Venkatarama Iyer and is currently involved in developing techniques to achieve more purity in `gamakas.' Krishna, a disciple of Seetharama Sharma, has also been tutored by Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer and Chengalpet Ranganathan. Beginning his career with the Spirit of Youth Festival in 1988, Krishna has since climbed quite a few steps on the ladder.

Accompanying the two would be Mullaivasal G. Chandramouli on the violin, Tiruvarur Bhaktavatsalam on the mridangam, V. Suresh and Adambakkam Shankar on the ghatam and Haridwarmangalam A.K. Palanivel on the special thavil.

We'll leave you, then, to the masters and their music.
