Video Presentation: VADYA
SANGEETAM - 27 AUG 2012
As part of ONAM celebrations @
Prashanthi Nilayam , day I witnessed a Mridangam recital by Mridangam maestro of
Guiness Book fame Sri Kuzhalmandam Ramakrishnan ...
The artiste was accompanied by Guruvayoor Rajamoni and Adarsh Ajay Kumar on
Violin, Aiyappan Nenmara on Saxophone, Thrikkakkara YN Santharam on Ganjira,
Babu Idappal on Keyboard and Umesh on Rhytham Pad.
Playing for a full 45 minutes, not-stop, when the artiste's gifted fingers fell
in harmony on the blessed percussion instrument, what emanated was sheer
brilliance tantalising the audience in the august evening assembly. Known for
his marathon stints, when Sri Ramakrishnan continued exhibiting keen passion,
standing on stage, students as well joined the artiste weaving rhythmic beats
that reverberated the entire hall.
