Chennai N. Harish rendered a vocal concert at the 82nd monthly Tamil music festival of the Tiruchi Tamil Isai Sangam at the Tiruchi Tamil Sangam Hall. The concert comprised popular verses and songs composed by great seers and poets.

Harish, disciple of Vijay Siva, commenced the concert in a promising note with ‘Guruvarulum' composed by Gowri Sankar in Abhogi ragam. It was followed by ‘Innum Paaramugamo' in Begada composed by Duraisamy Kavirayar. The popular kriti ‘Sevika Vaendum' by Muthuthandavar in Andolika cast a magic spell on the rasikas.

Enchanting kritis

Subramania Bharati's two songs ‘Thondru Nigazhnthathu' in Bhairavi and ‘Aasai Mugam' mesmerised the audience. Equally enchanting was ‘Aadum Deivam' by Papanasam Sivan in Khambodi. The popular Thevaram verse by Appar ‘Therpadai' and Tiruppugazh by Arunagirinathar were also rendered on the occasion.

Harish concluded the concert with ‘Vaazhiya Senthamizh' by Bharati. Srirangam Lakshminarayanan provided support on the violin, Srirangam K. Vijayaraghavan on the mridangam, and Tiruchi K. Sekar on the ganjira.

K. Sekar, principal, Chidambaram Pillai College for Women, Manachanallur, was the chief guest.
