Ashok Ramani – Vocal

Nagai Muralidharan – Violin

Srimushnam Raja Rao – Mridangam

Raja Ganesh – Kanjira

The concert started with Vanajakshi – Varnam (Kalyani). Initially, singer Ashok Ramani was beleaguered with his troubled voice but thankfully in response Nagai Muralidharan managed to help him craft the rest of the piece very nicely.

The second piece – ‘Nijamunnia Nambinen’, Bilahari, Kanda Chapu – was also a moderate one with few lakshanas. However, Ashok Ramani tried to bring out the essence of Bilahari in the beginning and kept his audience intact with his performance. So to say, it was not his day as he struggled with vocal strains wouldn’t be far from the truth. Muralidharan and Raja Rao were of a great support to him and the later encouraged him with his kindling strokes that evidently made him more at ease.

Bhuvini Dasudane’- Sri Ranjani was the next to come. The swaram rendering was really good as Ashok revealed his expertise in singing short phrases, as the accompaniments did their part to make it complete. A special mention to Ashok’s effort to entertain the audience; I, for one, really appreciated it!

An all time favorite piece – Enthuku Bethala (Sankarabharanam) was the core of his performance. Ashok Ramani delighted the audience with numerous sangathis that lifted the performance to a state of bliss for the audience. Although, there are limitless possibilities in presenting a musical treat to the audience, I think it is the self-realization, which helps the artist to be more successful on stage. It is also highly important to understand one’s own limitation (voice and imagination) and on that note, Ashok was privileged to overcome his voice strains with Muralidharan’s flow on his strings glorifying the piece further. Raja Rao gave a very decent support, which made Ashok sing more fluently…especially with the Sangathis and Neraval Swarams. The pace of the Thala made it more interesting to listen to. Ashok sang intricate Swara combinations and it whipped the audience into a delightful frenzy.

Raja Rao’s Thani was exclusive in terms of Laya patterns and Raja Ganesh on Kanjira was effective. On Thani, he exhibited more of his talents that reflected Raja Rao’s style. He performed as a perfect ‘Upa Pakka Vadhyam’ (Rhythm Support) as he explored many rounds of short korvai. The Koraippu and Mohara Korvai took the limelight when Raja Rao gave unique touches with these powerful but melodious strokes.

The other items were Maname Kanavum Maravadhe, Nee Sahayam – Kalyana Vasandham and finally a Ragamalika glimpse by Kapi, Sindhubairavia and Madhayamavathi. ‘Karpagame’ was a nice finishing touch as it related more to the location (Mylapore) of the Sabha.

A good concert doesn’t always hail from the head count of the audience, but rather on the quality of the rasikas. And by that standard, this one turned out to be a really good concert.
