UK Concerts




Dear friends,

Hope you all had a lovely Diwali.

I had nice performances at London, full houses and warm audiences, organised by Tamil Orphans Trust. Very satisfying. Singing for 3 1/2 hours on consecutive days is quite a task, but by God's grace I was able to do it.

An excerpt from Sunday's concert:

The weather in London was quite pleasant bordering on being a little chilly and biting at times, especially at night. After the concerts I had a day to spare and went to the Bhakthivedanta Manor Hare Krishna Temple at George Harrison Manor, donated by George Harrison of the Beatles, to the Hare Krishna Movement. I also did some modest shopping and dined out with friends. I gave interviews, for Deepam TV, G-TV, IBC Radio, and one for Thamarai.com, a new portal for showcasing Asian talents to the Western world. The London audience is loving, receptive, very encouraging, and I was tickled when "Once more" resounded in the hall after I finished "Enna Thavam Seidhanai" in Kapi Raga. Overall, a hectic, enjoyable trip. Hope you liked me on Vijay TV's "Paattu Padava". I did my best, and 60K is nice to win...I'm contented (for now!!)

  1. It was an absolute pleasure to listen to you at the Chuchill Hall last night. It is a breath of fresh air when some not only sings but also explains music to the uninitiated like myself. My wife & I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. You were wonderful.
