Padmashri Smt.Aruna Sairam performed at Narada Gana Sabha for the December concert series by Kartik Fine Arts

Padmashri Smt.Aruna Sairam gave a treat to the rasikas at her performance organised by Kartik Fine Arts at Narada Gana Sabha. She started the concert with the beautiful Suddha Dhanyasi varnam ‘Sri raja mathangi’ and then sang ‘Adiya Paadha Darishanam Kanden’ by Gopalakrishna Bharathi. She presented a rare piece on Valaji by Vdwan Srivatsa.

Her rendition of ‘Dunmaarga’ the Tyagaraja krithi in Ranjani was handled beautifully where she travelled all three octaves with finesse. ‘Ramanamamu’ in Atana was a peppy contrast to Ema Ninne in Mukhari which followed after ranjani. Her main piece for the day was the evergreen ‘ Kaligiyunte’ in Keeravani.

She sang the popular ‘Sawale Sundara’ Abhang followed by a bhajan on Sri Krishna and ended the concert with ‘Bhaktha Jana vatsale’ which was an audience request. The audience joined in to chant ‘Vittal vital’ which made the environment magical.

She was accompanied by Sri.R.K.Sriramkumar on the violin who gave her excellent support. Sri.Sai Giridhar on the mrudangam and Sri.S.V.Ramani on the ghatam escalated the concert with their thani avarthanam
