Ganesh was in his elements

Dr Ganesh was in his elements at Kamarajar hall for Chennayil Thiruvaiyaru.

We are reminded of his guru Maharahajapuram Santhanam when we listen to Dr Ganesh. The kuzhaivu and melody in his voice makes even a layman enjoy his concert.

A viruttam in Panthuvarali was followed by Siva Siva siva enaradha ( panthuvarali)by THyagaraja . The niraval Agamula and the subsequent swara kalpana was structured to perfection.

A treatise on Deva gandhari for the popular song Pancha chatpi taroopini by Muthuswamy Dikshitar proved his fidelity to patanthra. There was bhava in his rendition of every song.

A tillana in charukesi by Maharajapuram Santhanam was engaging with clear enunciation of lyrics.

He offered pranams to gurus by rendering Thunga theera viraham, dedicated to Raghavendra swami and a Sai bhajan . The aura was surcharged with bhakthi and it reached a crescendo when he rendered the all time classic Bo Sambosivambo in revathy popularized by his guru.

Madurai Balasubramaniam on violin played in sync and Melakaveri Balaji on mridangam wove rich tapestry of solkattus . Sundar on moharsing played with panache.’The tani of Balaji and Sundar had variety of rhythmic patterns to be savored
