Sudha Raghuraman’s concert at the India International Centre scored on both lyrics and melody.
At New Delhi’s India International Centre, Carnatic vocalist Sudha Raghuraman presented a captivating concert recently. Tyagaraja’s “Nidhichala” in raga Kalyani was the centrepiece of her recital. Apart from bringing the lyrical values of the composition to the fore, Sudha sang a fine alapana of this raga.
The singer also excelled in the earlier part of the concert when she took up Harikesanallur Muthaiah Bagavatar’s composition “Vanchatonu” in raga Karnaranjani, in which she produced a scintillating alapana of the raga.
VSK Chakrapani on the violin, M.V. Chandrasekhar on the mridangam and K. Ramamurthy on the ghatam provided excellent support to Sudha.
