It was fun all through out the day with a trip to a temple near Singaperumal Koil with my grand parents and then on returning i just went to YMCA grounds where there was Cricket mela going on under YACM. Thanks to my uncle Embar Kannan, after winning the first match, left for the day and thanks to the team member, i was taken as replacement.
It was fun throughout the match and I ended up in winning side. Also i took two good catches which were of the opposition team captain Guruprasad anna and Ramana anna. Shall detail other things later as i am now leaving to Madurai for heArtbeat Ensemble concert tomorrow.
Great day to end a year 31st dec'09 with BGS and a great day to start with Nadhasudha
Performing with Poongi uncle and Karthick uncle is always a good experience and with VV Ravi uncle on violin, i had a great day on the 31st Dec'09 at Sivagami Pethachi auditorium for Brahma Gana Sabha. I took up a rare raga in Vishvamari for a RTP and this was well received. Thanks to teh encouragement given by Balu uncle and Ravi uncle - Secretaries of the Sabha i had a great day of performing with leading artists. More details can be had in the blog carnaticonkeybaord.
After this we went to Vipanchee to get the blessings of my Guru Dr. Balamuralikrishna and then went to Music academy for teh new Year celebrations arranged by Carnatica. I teamed up with my uncle and performed a Fusion concept for about 15 mts and the great thing was that when we finished our last phrase the clock was showing 00:00:00 the birth of year 2010!
Not many will be blessed to finish a year with a good oppurtunity concert and also begin the following year with a great concert oppurtunity and this happened to me with 31st Dec'09 for BGS and 1st Jan'10 for Nadasudha. This concert was also at the very place of keyboard Swamiji Sri Ganapathy Sachidhananda Ashram and it was indeed a great sign for good fortune to folwo. It was a concert i was playing for the first time teaming up with M.A. Sundearesan uncle on the Violin, J.Vaidhyanathan uncle on the Mrudhangama and E.M. Subramaniam uncle on the Ghatam. A a request i performed a detailed raaga aalapan for Aanda Bhairavi with krithi Thyagaraja YogaVaibhavama and Reethigowla for Jananininuvina.
It was also another great day with my amma singing in the same venue from 3:30 to 5pm and indeed it was a unique happening. With large audience around and lots of blessings from great vidwans i look forward to greater happenings in my journey of music.
