Music Darbha sisters Harini and Mriduravali sang to bring out devotion. P. Surya Rao
Darbha sisters Harini and Mriduravali are exceptionally talented young singers who can render classical, devotional and light music with equal ease and efficiency.
Their devotional music concert at Gokaraju Laila Gangaraju Kala Vedika in the premises of Government Music college was jointly sponsored by Andhra Arts Academy, Sahithi Sravanthi and Photo India attracted a large crowd that enjoyed the concert which came as a whiff of cool breeze in the simmering summer heat of Vijayawada. Though well trained in all aspects of classical music, Harini and Mriduravali devoted their entire concert to Bhakthi Sangeetam which consisted of compositions of Ramadas, Annamacharya, Purandaradas and several others. The melodious voices of the sisters blended extremely well and they sang with devotional fervor. A few of the highlights in the concert were `Charanamule nammithi’ (Kafi), `Katteduta Vaikunthamu’ (Hindola), `Ragi tandira’ (Revathi), `Vade Venkatadri meeda’(Vasanta) and `Sriramula Divyanama’ (Saveri). The duo was ably supported by Pappu Gnanadev (violin) and Pappu Satya Jayadev (mridangam). (eom).
