Chennai Sangamam 2008

I was happy to have been part of this great festival as an artist for the inaugural function on the 10th Jan'08 and also perform at the Nageswara Rao park in Mylapore on the 11th morning. It was a real great experience to have worked with a team of 40 other carnatic musicians with individual miking and kudos to Dibanshu uncle & team which worked under Paul Jacob uncle for making it a great success. Controlling almost 100 live mikes in a open auditorium is indeed a great job and hats off to the team for their show on the 10th and 11th Jan'08. It was great time having 16 days of rehearsals which brought us all to become a family and almost every one felt sorry on the 11th Jan'08 after the show as we had to wait for another oppurtunity to meet up.

Thanks to my school administration who allowed me to write my exam in a separate room on the 10th morning after i finished a concert around 1030am in Mylapore. After the exam i straight went to IIT for the Chennai Sangamam stage rehearsal followed by the show presentation. Infact after the hectic music season Chennai Sangamam rehearsals and the show kept me very busy and i really enjoyed every bit of the moment. I was also happy that amma got an opportunity to sing the prayer for the Chennai Sangamam shows at IIT and it was indeed a great New Year Gift by god to her.
