Isai Payanam Concert at Sydney, May 23rd


Dear friends,

You may be wondering why this hiatus from blogging for dear Charu, but I assure you that I'm fine, in the pink of health, and just back to work after a most memorable vacation in Western and South Western Australia with my family.

My concert at Sydney on May 23rd was well attended by Srilankans and South Indians alike. It was an Isai Payanam concert where I outlined ragas like Hamsadhwani, Dwijavanti, Sahana, Maand, Sindhubhairavi, Pantuvarali and others highlighting their classical and film features much to everyones delight. I had plenty of requests and the evening was long and exciting with lots of interaction with the crowd. The crowd consisted of young students and older seasoned rasikas.

The day after the concert I did sight-seeing of Sydney - Darling Harbour, Centre Point tower, Opera House etc. Great fun. Wound up for the day by having dinner at a family friend's residence. The concert was arranged by Sri Karpaga Vinayakar Temple, Homebush, Sydney, Australia..
