Deepotsavam and Concert at Hare Krishna Temple

Hi all!

On November 1st, I performed a concert at the Hare Krishna Temple, Valmiki Nagar for Deepotsavam Festival, in which devotees offer lamps to the Lord. I was accompanied by Arunachala Karthik on Violin and Erode Nagaraj on Mridangam. A devotional experience. The songlist included Pallandu (Nattai), Bhavamulona (Suddha Dhanyasi), Sriman Narayana (Bowli), Enna Thavam (Kapi), Sri Madhava (Behag) and Balagopala (Bhairavi) was the main piece. I also presented Abhangs Theertha Vittala and Bhakthajana Vatsale to an enthusiastic audience. The miking and sound was excellent and the arrangements were hassle-free.

Audio excerpts from the concert:

Govardhana Giridhara


Abhang - Bhaktajana Vatsale

Abhang - Theertha Vittala

Damodara is the representation of Krishna when he is tied to the mortar by his mother Yashoda for his lila-s. This month, the month of Kartika, Damodara is worshipped. He is Bhaktha-paradheena meaning he is enslaved by Bhakthi.

until later...
