The artists came together in a wonderful expressive way and gave a new meaning to the thought behind the phrase Swara Raga Sudha Kala . 

The Bharatnatyam set the tone for what turned out to be pure mystique. The children started us on our journey with vigor and enthusiasm even as little feet traced intricate patterns. Sri Chetan and Smt Akhila then raised the bar with their delicate artistry and exquisite expression.

Smt Indrani picked up and through her rendition took the raga Madhuvanthi to a new level of clarity and beauty.

Sri Krishna then translated that beauty into precision, artistry and sheer magic. Not to be left behind, the instrumental trio of Sri Madhu ji on the harmonium , Sri Mani on the sitar and Kum Ramgasri on the violin took on the mantle and wove a web of such extreme delicacy and yet extreme complexity that the ears had no desire for anything else. But that was not the intension of the percussion duo of Sri Laxmisha on the mrudangam and Sri Sarangdev on the tabla. They capped off the performance with a finish that left everyone breathless !

Thank you all !
