Tirumala Tirupati Devasthanam,Chennai - 8/6/09

This concert got fixed all of a sudden,just on the previous day,since there was a change in their original schedule due to unavoidable reasons.

And,the organizer requested me sing ALL annamayyA songs, since this was part of their annamayyA jayanti celebrations.

So,I had less than 24 hours to prepare for this concert !

Hi Gayathri, you've been super busy lately! Your Russia blog was great. Can you put some parts of your songs on your blog (like only the neraval or kalpanaswaram, pallavi, etc) - almost like a teaser? Thanks!

Bhavamulona, Nanati, Bhavayami, Muddugare - are all that I've heard before. Kalyanavasantham, Vasantha, Saveri - all Annamacharya Krithis..that seems quite something!

Gayathri ji,
Vow! You can handle such last minute concerts very well too. Both the prior concerts were so different too. Nice song lists. You are an all rounder - back to back concerts, extensive travel, blogging and what not. I remember reading about your daughter in one of your earlier blogs & she learns from you too. How do you manage to make time to teach her. Should learn time management from you!

Hi Veena,

And,its a week since school has re-opened here for Vishruthi and Vishvesh! So you can imagine how things would be:-)
