3) M.S. subbulakshmi passes away, aged 88:

The Hindu : Front Page : M.S. subbulakshmi passes away, aged 88 M S Subbulakshmi passes away : .....The vocalist died peacefully in her sleep.....

You can listen to "Kurai Onrum Illai" and other songs by M.S. at Music India OnLine: Songs by Subbulakshmi M S

Meanwhile: The voice that touched India's soul : .....She was known as the "nightingale of India," but that scarcely captured what Madurai Shanmukhavadivu Subbulakshmi - who died on Saturday at the age of 88 - was all about. Known widely as just "M.S.," she was the greatest singer of Carnatic music, the South Indian genre that's considered to be one of the oldest systems of devotional music in the world.....

Ist Half

Vocal: Bombay Jayashri Ramnath
Violin : RK Shriramkumar
Mridangam : K Arun Prakash
Kanjira : TD Rajagopal
Song List:
  1. Bhaja Manasa (Bahudari, Adi, Tulasi Vanam)

  6. Bhajan (didn’t catch details!)
  7. Thillana (Lalgudi Jayaraman Composition)

A wonderful build up to the main piece. First 4 songs kept getting better. Pporvikalyani was a delight..and song rendered with much bhava. By the time she got to the main piece in and she announced that Main piece was to be in Sangkarabaharanam, audience expectiations were high. Main piece was thus a bit of a let down, as it felt quite rushed and half explored.

AKS was brilliant on the violin and for the Poorvikalyani and Sangakarabharanam pieces.

2nd Half
Vocal: Unnikrishnan
Violin : RK Shriramkumar
Mridangam : K Arun Prakash
Kanjira : TD Rajagopal

  4. Karthikeya Gangeya (Thodi, Adi, P.Sivan) – MAIN PIECE – Extensive elaboration of Raaga, followed by Raaga and Neraval at Vel Maruvu..
  5. Krishna Nee Begane (Vyasaraya)
  6. Thillana (Hamsanadi, Adi, Calcutta KS Krishnamurthy)
  7. Mangalam

It was clearly Unnikrishnan’s night. Absolutely fantastic renditions all! Beautiful elaborations of Lathangi and clear crisp swara passages followed. He clearly held the audience in awe for his main piece as there was pin drop silence whilst he took Thodi to new heights! Neraval and Swaras in Thodi were stunning ..with good chemistry between the Unni and AKS. The Thani too was a delight, and held the audience attention til the end… (not a single person walked out!!!!) A sigh of disappointment rippled through the audience when he announced his last piece, clearly wanting him to sing more (although it was already 12.30 am!!!) Most of the audience we already on their feet before he could finish his Mangalam for a truly much deserved standing ovation.
