HAMSADHWANI
It’s pleasantly different!
It is a new experience for the audience at the Music Academy thanks to the Bose state-of-the-art sound system.
Music


MUSIC ACADEMY
Serious music with much planning
Gayathri Venkatraghavan had chosen ragas and compositions with great care to present a wholesome concert.



MUSIC ACADEMY
Perfect foil for each other
Sheik Mehboob Subhani and Kaleesha bi Mehboob provide an auspicious start to the Music Academy’s festival.


NAADA BRAHMAM
With the flourish of nagaswaram
The Kalyani that Chandrasekaran played as a tribute to Rajarathinam Pillai was lapped up.


BRAHMA GANA SABHA
Skeins woven with skill
Subhiksha Rangarajan, an artist of credible potential, began her vocal recital with a Sanskrit sloka presaging Dikshitar’s Shanmukha priya or Chamaram in the Dikshitar tradition song, ‘Siddhi Vinayakam,’ with pulsating swara ...


SRI KRISHNA GANA GABHA
Unrelenting tempo
Aesthetic evocation took a backseat in the performance of Hyderabad Sisters.


MYLAPORE FINE ARTS CLUB
Graceful style, offbeat presentation
Bhushani Kalyanaraman exhibited her expertise in manipulating her voice. Better planning would have made Jayanthi Sridharan’s recital more gripping.

BRAHMA GANA SABHA
Music, alluring and vivacious
Nithyashree was appealing while Mohan Santhanam was filled with energy.


SRI KRISHNA GANA SABHA
Mature and youthful
T.N.Krishnan’s bowing was sensitive and Viji and Sriram proved they are not just chips off the old block but the old block itself. SVK


SAFE
Carries all the virtues
Pantula Rama’s vocal recital for SAFE was quite vibrant and vivid. Rama exudes full confidence in the medium she has chosen to express herself and it is clear in her delivery. It carries all the qualities of a good music; open throated, ...


HAMSADHWANI
Charming in its simplicity
The Dhananjayans’ offering of devotional themes had no frills or fireworks.


SAFE
Perfect enunciation
Kiranavali Vidhyasankar’s voice has a clear tenor and her perfect enunciation adds value to her musical expression. Notwithstanding these attributes, her concert for Shanti Arts Foundation & Endowments at the newly air-conditioned ...


MY FESTIVAL
Memories of my uncle come flooding back
The season has become global, more challenging.
