Sanjay @ NMKRV

Sanjay sings at NMKRV, Ramalalita Kala Mandira every year to packed audiences . This year was no exception and reached the venue half an hour in advance so that we could get seats in the auditorium. He was accompanied by S.Varadarajan on violin, Arun Prakash on Mridangam and B.Guruprasanna on Khanjira.

1. Pankajakshi - Kambhoji pada varnam - Ramaswamy sivan - Ata tAlam

2. Telisi Rama chandra - purna chandrikA - St. Thyagaraja - Adi tAlam

3. Manasa Yetulo - malayamArutham - St. Thyagaraja - Rupaka tAlam
Neraval and swarams at "kalilo rajasa"

4. Ranjani niranjani - ranjani - GNB - Adi tAlam - One of my favorite rAgas and I thought he'd sing DurmargaChara but

5. Nannu Vidachi - Reethigowla - Thyagaraja - Rupaka tAlam
This was rendered with lot of fervour and devotion and I liked this rendition almost as much as that by Maharajapuram V. Santhanam.

6. ShankarAchAyam - sankarAbharanam - Subbarama Dikshithar -Adi tAlam
Sanjay always includes one major Carnatic Raga like Thodi, Kalyani, Bhairavi, Kamboji, Shankarabharam, etc in his recitals which, in my opinion, is a commendable practice indeed.
The alapanai by S. Varadarajan was extremely well- rendered. Neraval and swarams at " Parama Latha"

7. Chittam irangaden aaya - Sahana -Papanasam Sivan - Rupaka tAlam

8. RTP - Jounpuri - pallavi Yeppo varuvaro enthan kali theera popularized by MMI

Brilliant RTP in Jounpuri - Haven't heard any Carnatic musician sing an elaborate Jounpuri till date (have heard most people relegate it this Raga for small Tukkadas.) Hindustani musicians have, on the other hand, sung detailed Jounpuris - have heard Pandit Kanekar sing wonderful compositions in Jounpuri at a couple of chamber concerts. (I've been racking my brains to recollect a bandish sung by him in Jounpuri Bahar which I heard 10 -11 years ago but haven't been able successful as yet.) While I was anticipating rAgamAlikA swarams, he completed the RTP with the song's anupallavi and last charanam amidst thundering applause.

9. Kandu dhanyna - Behag - Purandaradasa - Rupaka tAlam

10. Engum niraidirukum en deivam - kurunji + kalyani

11. Sloka - bansivale (bhajan) - Mohanam - Swathi Tirunal - Adi tAlam

12. Sindhu bhairavi - Thillana - M.D.Ramanathan - Adi tAlam

13. maname kanamum maravade - bhimplas - papanasam sivan (Film song from tamil movie and immortalized in M.S.Subbalakshmi's golden voice)

14. Mangalam - Sourashtram - St. Thyagaraja
