The Chennai December Festival
Once upon a time...
Needs more refinement
Bombay Jayashree deviated from the schedule. And Sanjay Subramaniam fell short of expectations.
Touched the intellect, not the heart
It was not the mellow and moving OST that one came across that evening. O.S.Arun’s Madhyamavati brought his manodharama to the fore and Rashid Khan’s recital, though short, revealed a deep tradition.
NARADA GANA SABHA
Maintaining an exemplary standard, Kanyakumari and Embar Kannan provided an elevating experience.
BRAHMA GANA SABHA
Strict adherence to the Parur bani
Narmadha’s recital showcased her talent and focus on her chosen vocation.
TARANGINI ARTS FOUNDATION
Talent from Bangalore
Dr. Suma Sudhindra, Manasi Prasad and Shanker — it was music from the heart they presented.
SRI RAMA BHAKTA JANA SABHA
Of harmony and melody
Krishnan’s team work and interface with his percussionists was interesting.
Music matters - I
P.B. Srinivas, omnipresent with his turban and other paraphernalia that go with him, appeared on stage after Sanjay’s three-hour-plus-concert at Mudhra, and said this of Sanjay: “Here is a person who enjoys his music and makes ...

Rasikas at the Narada Gana Sabha cannot miss Thanikachalam - a tall, hefty figure in spotless white doing the work of the field level supervisor. And what perhaps clinches his place in the sabha’s history is the way he does the change ...
Live up to their standard
The Bombay Sisters’ vidwat stood out, especially in the exposition of Kalyani and Thodi.
SRI PARTHASARATHY SWAMI SABHA
Fast tempo settles into sober stride
Sometimes, the choice of songs plays a major role in making the concert effective and lively, or subdued and solemn. Sangeetha Swaminathan started her concert well with the varnam and ‘Paramathmudu’ in Vagadeeswari with ...
Rich tapestry of emotions
The performance, by Vyjayantimala, who touched upon the miracles of Krishna, retained an old world charm.
SRI KRISHNA GANA SABHA
Stirs the intellect
Anita Ratnam does it, with her holistic approach to choreography, the spoken word, sets, lighting design and costumes.
BRAHMA GANA SABHA
An evening of beauty
The varnam, presented in the devadasi tradition, was powerful in its simplicity.
