Dhenuka – Theliyaleru – desadi – Thyagaraja
Karaharapriya – Chakkani – Adi (elaborate R, S at kantiki, no neraval though) – Thyagaraja

Had to leave as he started swarams at kantiki.

TK Murthy proved his worth at Chakkani.  The sound of his mridangam itself is quite different from other mridangams.  It really is a mrudu angam.  The way he played for each and every sangathi was simply superb and embellished the song.  Think the tani would have been quite enjoyable as well.

Usha Rajagoplan on violin did a fantastic job on Simmendra madhyamam & Karaharapriya.  There was no dull moment in the concert in that 2 hours I was there. 

TK Murthy had one of his sishyas also assist him on mridangam.   Kanjira – I could not get the young lad’s name even from the organizers 😦
