|concert on 19.09.2012|
I should thank Lord Vinayaka for having me perform in Bala Vinayakar Temple, Warren Road, Myalapore on the September 13, 2012 and in Senthil Valampuri Vinayagar Temple, Senthil Nagar near Thirumullaivayil on the Vinayagar Chathurthi day this year on the September 19th, 2012 and it was a good experience. I had performed with the team of Karaikal Venkatasubramani anna on violin, Kumbakonam Swaminathan anna on Mrudhangam, Pradeep uncle on Tabla and Rajagopal uncle on special effects. I really enjoy the concerts here as it is well attended by audience who come with some expectations and if only we can understand and present to their liking it would be a great day and it was one of those great day for our team! I was worried as it was raining heavily after the start of the concert (and so was the organising members!) but with the Grace of Lord Vinayaka we could continue in spite of rain and the audience also stayed till the end! The rain stopped after around 40 mts and it rained "cats & dogs" after we reached home! Miracle indeed that none of us got struck anywhere in the rain!
The concert on Vinayagar Chathurthi Temple on the September 19, 2012 was with the team of SP Ananthapadmanabha on Violin, Arjun Ganesh anna on Mrudhangam and Sundar uncle on Tabla. Senthil Nagar, Thirumullaivayil, even though i understand its in city limits now, it was indeed a typical Village ambience and allow as set with an excellent PA system too! From Ambattur main road in to Senthil Nagar it was more of travelling in MOTO car race i.e. travelling in pits amidst some roads laid! Thank God it did not rain as we could not have reached the venue without any adventure! It was indeed a trekking experience into the venue as they had dug and kept just few Road locations for usage! The concert went on for almost 2 hrs and every one enjoyed the same including the artists on stage and the audience! It was so moving that the organisers informed that they would be inviting us as many times as possible as the audience have given them a good feedback of our concert.
