L akshmi Rajagopal's vocal concert took place recently in Tiruchi as the final segment of the monthly ‘Eppadi Paadinaro' music series, organised by Rasika Ranjana Sabha and Sri Krishna Sweets.

Starting the concert with a Saurashtra varnam (‘Sri Ganapathini'), she sailed past sweetly in Bowli (‘Sriman Narayana') and Vasantha (‘Takshi'). Her Khambodi (‘Gnanamu') was extensive.

Lakshmi's Sankarabharanam elaboration (‘Saroja Dala') with rich swara sallies and sangatis in her commanding voice was engaging. Her ragamalika (‘Petrathai') followed by Revathi (‘Maha Siva Sambho') and Khamas tillanas cast a spell on the rasikas.

The AIR artists T.H. Vasantha and Tiruchi Rengarajan gave able support on the violin and mridangam respectively. Rengarajan's thani was absorbing.
