Blessed to perform for Shivarathiri 2014 at Bandikavanoor Temple

It was a indeed a good late evening drive to this wonderful Village where i had an opportunity to perform in this 300 year old Shiva Vishnu Temple with my Mamoos Embar Kannan ji, Sumesh Narayanan ji and Hariharasubramanian ji!

As there was no feedback monitor and we had initially little problem to play in coordination as we had to listen to the sound which was coming from the speakers meant for outside which means we had latency problem! We did get settled after the first song and then it was a nice journey into the concert.

If possible please listen to the tracks in the downloadable link in

Great December, 2013

It has been wonderful December with great enhancement by Teams for all the concerts and it was so nice of Mr. Shriananth & family to have brought a new keyboard 'KORG MICROSTATION'. This makes December 2013 indeed Special! 

Each concert had good things happenings with the concert 0n 2nd December was a dear for us as it was SATHYABODHI and we had a review for the concert in Dinamalar for the first time! 

3rd December concert was another first being the inauguration concert for Brahma Gana Sabha and for the first time teamed up with Smt. Padma Shankar, Sri. J. Vaidhyanathan and Sri. KV Gopalakrishnan. 
4th December was another first with Sumesh Narayanan anna joing us in CROSSROADS for the first time. 5th December concert had Smt. Sumana Rao from Boston as it was for a wedding reception concert for her family. 8th December at Coimbatore was one of the first performed with a grand team of 8 musicians. 10th December at MFAC was the first time with Trivandrum Balaji anna in the morning slot! 11th December concert was the first time teaming up with Sai Raghavan anna on Mrudhangam for a private wedding concert for a National party! 

December 14, 2013 was special as i got the Bhavan's Cultural Award from teh hands of Chief Justice of India Sri. Sadhasivam!
While December 16th concert was one in IIT premises, December 17th once again was the first time i was performing for RR Sabha, a renowned forum who this year condeucted this year at Dakshinamurthy Auditorium, PS Higher Secondary School, Mylapore and more happy was that it was in the evening 7pm slot! 

December 17, 2013 is also a Memorable day as this was the day i received my new KORG MICROSTATION! While i wanted to perform with this the same day The Almighty had reserved this to be performed first for a Iyyappa Pooja, just like the first concert i performed with my KORG PRO when i got it from Dr. Ravi Dattatreya way back in November 2004! What a coincidence! Swamiye Saranam Iyyappa! We as family have seen a great cycle of events from that Performance on the 30th Nov'04 and we seek The Almighty's Grace and well wisher's wishes to take on another Bigger Circle from December 22nd, 2013 concert performed being another first concert for Perumbur Iyyappa Baktha Samajam held in the premises of Perumbur Annadhana Samajam!
