I made it to the concert a little late, but the resonant notes of Dr.Jyotsna Srikanth’s voilin, N.Amrit’s Amrit Khanjira and Shadrach Solomon are richocheting over and again since the event. Raaga Shanmukhapriya was about to end when I enetered the hall..followed by Ragam Taanam Pallavi in Raagamalika comprising Kaapi, Behag, Narayani,Yaman etc..she concluded by playing Raaga Sindhubharavi and a traditional offering.Dr.Jyotsna keeps it simple, yet so captivating and enthralls the audience. Experimenting Carnatic Music with a contemporary giant of Dr.Jyotsna’s stature is not that easy, but Amrit on Khanjira showed his real mettle and a sheer class apart ala his peers, with breathtaking Thani avartha and speed. He undoubtedly rates among top-notch Khanjira players of our region. Shardoch Soloman played to his true self and follwoed it up with uncomplicated brief notes though, the Electronic Piano-keyboard can hardly be a patch on free flowing voilin notes of Dr.Jyotsna’s staure, but the sheer background score brings in a lot of dynamics as most may have observed. There lies sheer magnetism of music.To keep pace on changing times with a different verve makes our day as Mr.Krishna appealed to the discerning audience later. The Bangalore Percussive Art Centre alongwith Justice Nittoor Srinivasa Rao Memorial organised this rare endowment programme.

Overall, a rarity, but there’s seldom a dearth of avid listeners in Bangalore who are game for such novelty. For the second time I should deem myself very lucky to have caught glimpses of versatile Dr.Jyotsna Srikanth who rates among country’s top class global performers today..travels countlessly all over the world from London where she is located.
