His invocation to Lord Ganesha –varanamukha vaa in Hamsadhwani by kavikunjara bharathi was loaded with swaras which was electrifying.He explained the in brief about the composer and the composition which was educative.

Santahanagopalan s rendition of hindola raga had a special glamour and the famous Rammunukku mannan mudi by Arunachala kavirayar was brimming with erudition. He spaced out Patta katta ethavan di and the array of accompanists bolstered it by playing deftly.

The serene Orajupuju in Kannada gowali by thyagaraja was mesmeric.The richness of shanmukapriya unfolded in his amazing alapana for Parvathinayakane by Papanasam sivan,The vocalist made it monumental with his scholarly rendition of swaras.
