"Isai Sangamam with Charulatha Mani "- Aug 7, 2011

You are cordially invited to attend this unique concert. Hope you enjoy it as much as I enjoy presenting it to you!

Aug 7th, 6:15pm, Bharatiya Vidya Bhavan, Mylapore, Chennai

A confluence of Classical music, abhangs and Film music...


  1. Dear Madam,
    We have been watching the Isai payanam DVDs rather religiously in our house. My wife has asked me now (after listening to Shuddha Dhanyasi) to convey the message that the presentations are 'just superb'.
    May God bless you with lots of success.
    I am not sure if you had time to check some links to Hindustani bhajans sent earlier related to my dropbox account.
    With these presentations common people can have some introduction to classical music. Your attempt is making classical music understandable to the common people like us.
    Best regards,
    Dr. Badarinath

  2. dear madam

  3. சாருலதா மேடம் அவர்களுக்கு,

    இத்தனை நாள் எங்கே போயிருந்தீர்கள். கிரி டிரேடிங்கில் தங்களது சிடி வாங்கி வந்து வீட்டில் பார்த்தேன். மிகவும் சந்தோஷமாக இருந்தது. உங்களைப் போன்ற ஒரு இசை கலைஞரைத்தான் நான் இவ்வளவு வருடங்களாக தேடிக்கொண்டிருந்தேன். மேலும் உங்களது ப்ளாக்கை இப்போதுதான் காண நேர்ந்தது. சென்னையில் நடக்கவிருக்கும் அத்தனை நிகழ்ச்சிகளுக்கும் நேரமிருப்பின் அவசியம் வந்து கலந்து கொள்கிறேன்.
    தாங்கள் இன்னும் மேன்மேலும் வளர்ந்து புகழ்,பெயர், செல்வம், முக்கியமாக இறையருள் கிடைக்க எல்லாம் வல்ல இறைவனைப் பிரார்த்தித்துக் கொள்கிறேன்.

  4. respected madam

    i was one among the thousand who were lucky enough to sit and enjoy your rain of music and
    the musical discourse by you at barathia vidya bavan,mylapore. I was trying from last december
    to attend and to hear your music but only yesterday it was fulfilled.thanks for your lively eye contact
    you maintained throught the concert and it proved that not ony you are a performer but also a music teacher
    I once again thank you and expect to be your rasiga for ever.


  5. Charulatha,

    Saradha and I were very much ontime and took the third row, third and fourth seats on your left. Like the other mass audience, we too enjoyed the entire programme yesterday evening. In short, it was an wonderful performance. Your team members were too good in their peformance.

    At the end of the show, we both too wanted to personally come near the dias to greet you and your team with all our best wishes but however before I could slowly step up with my elbow crutch, other fortunate audience have engulfed the area; saradha and I had to move. Anyways, our BEST WISHES to you and all others who were responsible for this successful programme. I have just visited your website and toured through. We will keep in touch

    With Best Wishes
