Chennai Sangamam

"Tamizh Mayyam" has been organizing a four-to-five day Mela in the city of Chennai in the past few years.Carnatic Music concerts,folk arts, puppet shows and several other art forms have been part of this program titled "Chennai Sangamam".

A very unique feature of this festival is the venue chosen for this event. Public parks, beaches are chosen, so that the general public gets to know more about our traditional art forms.

In the year 2007, I sang at the Annanagar Tower Park at 7 a.m ! There was an excellent response even at that early hour.Last year, I sang at Kalakshetra. This year, yet another new venue was chosen. It was a huge playground in Palavakkam (on ECR Road), in Palkalai Nagar. A huge crowd had gathered and many, at the end of the concert, came and told me that they really enjoyed the "open-air concert"!
