A good 10 days of concerts and great news of Oscars.

Siva Vishu Tempel - Bandikavanoor
It was a great time performing concerts from the 12th till 23rd Feb almost one every alternate days. While each concert is a exciting experience the ones on the 18th and 23rd Feb'09 were really great being public concerts. I had a great trip to the foot hill of Kumaran Kundram in Chrompet and i am sure i will be visiting the temple in the near future. The full house audience at the concert for Narendra Cultural Academy gave our team a great boost and we did perform a good concert that day. On 23rd it was at a temple in Bandikavanoor Village around 30 kms from Chennai on the Periyapalathaman temple road. It was a nice drive we had and the temple is so good every one should surely make a trip and get the blessings of all the deity's who are really shaanthasoroobam in nature. It is a Shiva Vishnu Temple and i have given the link here for all to see the photos taken during this visit. The children were so excited to be on our cameras. When i visit next time i should take few copies of their picture and hand it over to them!

I also had Prapancham Shailendran as enhancing artist on lead Guitar for two concerts and it was very interesting to note that he is also playing guitar with no formal training on same. He is son of the great Mrudhangam vidwan Sri Prapancham Ravindran who was with us at the Embar Temple performance. Shailendran is also a good mrudhangam artist and he did join us for a concert on same during this hectic week.
