This concert was hosted by Veda Sri Venkateswara Temple, Seattle USA on 16th Oct 2016 during the concert tour conducted by Sankritilaya.
Musicians performed with two traditional tamburas in front of the sannidhis and most of the rasikas squatted on the floor close to the performers. It was an ambience that much reminded one of the concerts in Indian temples-not too formal and with eagerness to accept and cheer the artistes on stage.
Thus came into flower, the best in them.
This concert features Mohana Ramayya, a ragam tanam pallavi in Mohana Raga, extensively popularised by Sri D K Jayaraman, whose disciple Vijay Siva is.
This recording should be a valuable addition to your collection.
