Carnatic Music Extravaganza In
The South Indian Community in West Of Scotland
were treated with a delightful evening of carnatic music concert on the evening of
1st of September 2012 in Glasgow. The venue was the Hindu Temple Of
Scotland in Rutherglen in Glasgow which is a part of
The South Indian Cultural Centre. Probably this was a first such
event in the West of Scotland for at least over the last 35 years.
Chennai who is a medical proffessor and a musician was the
attained the prestigious title of "Kalaimamani" in music in 2003. He is one
of the foremost disciple of Sangeetha Kalanidhi Vidwan Sri D.K.Jayaraman and achieved advanced
training in carnatic
music from Sangeetha
Kalanidhi Vidwan Sri T.K.Govinda Rao. He is well
versed in Musicology and has extensively travelled abroad teaching
carnatic music and
also performing to delighted audiences both in India and abroad.
When the audience in Glasgow heard him performing at the Temple it
was obvious that he is a master of his gift of music. He also
rendered BhaJans in
Kannada and Telugu.
Dr. Sunder was accompanied in his concert on
violin by Mr Nagarajalu, a well known artist and a renowned teacher
of Violin. On Mridangum was Mr Padmanabhan who is also well known for
excellence in performing at world stages and also for teaching his
students. Both Mr Nagarajalu and Mr Padmanabhan are established
teachers at The Oriental Fine Arts Academy of London. The
combined performance of the three wonderful artists was a treat for
the hearts and minds of the people in the crowded hall. These three
proved their dedication and the passion to carnatic music with continued
performance well beyond the allocated time by responding to the
requests of the delighted audience. It was quite amazing to know
that Dr.Sunder had
not met either of his accompanying artists before the concert! The
evening came to a close when the artists concluded with a Thillana at the request of
Dr. Sunder's mother
and family who were amongst the delighted audience. The whole event
was further spiced up with tasty South Indian snacks during the
break, courtsey of
Banana Leaf the best known South Indian Restaurant in Glasgow.
All in all a wonderful evening which will
linger in the ears of carnatic music lovers for a long time.
The Hindu Temple is hoping to host such events in future. Hope to
see you all there.
I am sure many of us have photos of the event.
If you want further information give me a call.
