My first tour with heArtbeat Ensemble Chennai - Kumbakonam - Madurai concerts

It was a nice to have been on tour with Ghatam Karthick uncle's heartbeat group with concerts in Chennai on 08th for RR Sabha at Narada Gana Sabha then on 9th for Rotary Club at Kumbakonam and on the 10th Jan'09 for Sath Guru Sath Sangam - Madurai. It was a great oppurtunity & blessings for all of us as Mrudhangam Maestro Sri Umayalpuram Sivaraman sir was there present as an audience at Narada Gana Sabha on the 8th in Chennai. He appreciated the team's performance and blessed us all after the concert. It was so nice of a great vidwan to have been there for the concert throughout and understand gave valuable inputs to Karthick unlcle later.

The stay at Kumbakonam in Sri Jayakumar uncle's was great with all of us involved in playing Cricket and it was wonderful to interact with is son Kalpesh who is a gifted painter and a good artist. Given above a picture of Lord Krishna and i am with him and KVG anna. The trip to Madurai from there in a Qualis was very interesting with karthick uncle keeping us all occupied with his jokes also supported well by A.S. Krishnan uncle. We had a real good time both on and off the concert stage and i look forward to many such oppurtunities to come by!
