This is also a better late than never post! The past two weeks have been great what with 3 excellent concerts of Sanjay’s, that too Sanjay being accompanied by Varadarajan on the violin (my favourite combo) for all the concerts! If I start describing the concerts, this would become similar to all my earlier posts on Sanjay’s concerts. ;) So I am going to post just the songs lists. Here are the list of songs sung by Sanjay in the past three concerts (including today’s) that I went to.

Where & When? – Narada Gana Sabha on 5th Feb

Concert Duration – 2 hrs 35 minutes

Songs List:
1. Viriboni (Varnam) - Bhairavi
2. Ninnada – Kannada – Raaga outline, Swarams
3. Shobillu – Jaganmohini - Alapana, Neraval & Swarams at Dharariksa

10. Mangalam – Sowrashtram

Unlike during the Season, there was complete silence in the whole auditorium during the entire concert. There was not much of a crowd either at the balcony. All these made for a perfect ambience to listen to the Ranjani, which according to me, was the best part of the concert. Listening to the Ranjani alapana that was a sheer beauty and the rendition of the line kanchdaLa lOchanI kAmAkshI in ranjani niranjani, bringing out the beauty of the raaga and the lyrics, was bliss!
