The Music Season has begun !

It has been 10 days since my last post- with the torrential rains last week in Chennai and kids indoors all the time, it was like working over-time for me :-)

The Music Season in Chennai has begun, Sabha inaugurations will soon happen one after the other.We will start witnessing the festive atmosphere here at Chennai, at all the sabhas (concert halls and canteens inclusive!!)

This spectacular Music Festival is definitely an event to witness!

In the previous years, I have always attended concerts of other musicians during the Music Season, but with my own schedule getting more and more hectic, it becomes next to impossible to be able to do the same. I welcome music lovers to share their general experiences about the Season..I will come up with updates and my experiences as frequently as possible.

Wishing all Chennai-ites great listening ! And, isn't this tempting enough for non-Chennai-ites to sneak a peek into the city sometime this month?? :-)

Yes, the season is indeed a time where one gets to hear quite a few artistes. The duration of concerts is one thing that always nothers me - with artistes hurrying up to sing as much as they can, often at the cost of a leisurely exposition especially in venues where they have a fixed time slot. But, all said and done, the variety of fare available at one place is something that can be had during the season.

Hi

I actually have a little difference of opinion with Priya.. I would like to correct her statement n say U r already on the top. U r already an established musician n everybody knows it. Sticking to the tradition is the best thing about u. One thig that surprised me in the post that the very fact that u r a mother!!! I never knew that u has kids n thats really nice to know that u manage so many things. very inspiring mam... way to go!!!

i heard your CD VAISHNAVAM and felt rivetted to the soulful music. With the urge to communicate i turned into your blog to keep trail of your performances. the season seems to have gotten started on an innovative note. wishing you all the best,
