Review by Padma Ramani – Sid Sriram Concert

A power packed high energy Carnatic performance today in Pune by Sid Sriram and team for Poona Sangeeth Sabha . At the Creaticity amphitheater under the open sky after a prayer  to lord Ganesha  he started with Eranapai in thodi and followed it with Kapali in mohanam  and Sri satyanarayanam upasmahe in Subha panthuvarali . Then a quick Akhilandeswari Rakshamam and Raghuvamsa Sudha in kadana kuthuhalam .. which definitely made all swing along with the song .Following this was the elaborate Kalyani raagam and the Kriti Etavunara ... the rendition was beyond imagination.. both the neraval at Seetha Gowri and the Kalpana swaras took everyone in trance .. and what an accompaniment by Bhaskar on violin .. mesmerising it was !!And Pathri Shivakumar on mridangam and Ghatam Karthik enthralled the audience ..the Thani…

Sikkil Gurucharan Vocal Concert – Review by Padma Ramani

Reviews
Yet another superb concert .. by Poona Sangeeta Sabha  Sikkil Gurucharan and his team touched the pinnacle today as they rendered one after another songs following the pure Carnatic tradition. The main piece of today Bilahari followed by Najeevadhara was just too good .. listening to the aalapana, the niraval and Kalpana Swaras both by the artist as well as the accompanying violinist was sheer joy . Thani avarthanam by NC Bharadwaj and Dilip kumar was the best I have heard in so many years . The whole auditorium vibrated . Ending with the popular Hind desh ke niwasi sabhi jan ek hain .. this Republic Day concert will be remembered for a long time Thank you Poona Sangeeta Sabha

Thank you Poona sangeeth sabha Today’s concert was a out of the world experience. Trichur brothers and his team enthralled us with their superlative performance.. selection of popular songs, the alternate high pitch / low pitch Jugal bandi style rendition, involving the audience by constant interaction till the end .. the namasmaranam along with the artists, the Mangalam taking the Lords various names … everything was so unique and will stay in memories for a long time.. probably until I hear their next concert ..
