Malladi Brothers, V Sanjeev, K V Prasad & Kanjira (Artiste?)

They sang to a packed hall.

Nattai – Jaya Jaya Swamin – Adi – Narayana Theerthar? (S)
sarasangi – Neekela dayaradhu – Adi – Ramaswamy Sivan/Maha Vaidyanatha Sivan (S). The raga was announced.
Begada – Gatti ganu nanu – Rupakam – T (S)
Vagadeeswari – Paramatmudu – Adi – T (RS at hari hara)
varali – Mamava Meenakshi – Misra Chapu – D
Brindavana Saranga – Kamalapta kula – Adi – T (S at kamalapta kula)
Kambodhi – Ma Janaki – Adi – T (RNS T?)

I had to leave as they started nereval at Ma Janaki courtesy my long trek back home 😦

The brothers have such powerful voice. The vagadeeswari alapana was a tad long and it jarred on my ears. Mebbe because of its vivadiness. However, the kambodhi essay was pure bliss in three octaves. The brother (shorter one) shone in the higher octaves with his long held karvais. Sanjeev’s vinyasa of Kambhoji was perfect as well.

I haven’t heard any of these songs except for Paramtmudu (TKR) & Ma Janaki (MMI) in recordings.

Overall I am very satisfied that I chose to attend them yesterday.
