It has been a a good couple of weeks gone wherein i have had some good concerts and also my exams in this period. I had 2 public concerts and 2 private concerts and all of them went well. The one at Visakaa Innisai Peravai at ambattur was performed in a divine atmosphere in the Sath Sangam building and had a god knowledgeable audience for the concert. While the team did present a good show, i felt there was electrical problems and that the current supply was not at the adequate level (low Voltage) because of which my instrument's tone itself came out differently. It was the same case for all the other instruments and we presented a concert actually with a discomfortof not having proper feedback. Well it happens sometimes and that's one of the problem of having an electronic instrument. While all have just the PA system to do them favour i need also my own instrument to do its best for which power supply has to be at the right level.
The heArtbeat concert performed in Pudhucherry for Pudhucherry (Pondycherry) Doordharshan's golden Jubilee celebrations which was well received and i understand one of the song performed was also shown the following day i.e. 19th September'10 in Podhigai channel. It was again fun trip as we went in a Tempo Traveller listening to SV Sekar's dramas and Maestro Illayaraja songs. In this concert Sundarkumar anna played Mrudhangam (he is a A grade AIR artist) and Venkat anna perfomed on Kanjeera part from Raman uncle on Morsing, Raju uncle on Mandolin with Dr. Karthick leading the team on Ghatam & Vocal. Here also i think we had power problem and not only mine the Mandolin tone & the tonal quality of all the other instruments were sounding totally different. Well some time we need to cope up with this difficulty as no one is to be blamed for Power fluctuations! We had a nice host in Sri A.L. Ramasamy who is a multi talented personality. He plays morsing, guitar, writes poems, makes good paintings and also makes special carvings. We all were amazed on seeing a Thiruvalluvar statue which he had made of clay and also a sitting / resting Lion in a marble stone!
We had a UNO session at home on the 20th September'10 at home with Drummer Sridhar anna, Nadaswaram Bala anna, Mrudhangam Swaminathan anna, Keyboard Arunkumar anna & with my appa. It was fun all the way and we all had nice dinner at Ashok Nagar Hotchips restaurant sponsored by Sridhara anna. Looking forward to another session soon and also the grand dinner to follow!!! Sridhar anna are you ready? I am ready anytime after 24th Se'10 and looking forward to seeing him after his successful trip to South Africa to watch the finals of the Champions trophy 2010 as the winner of the highest viewed video to cheer up Chennai Super kings!!
