Mindblowing!

Only word to describe a concert performance by (Guitar) Prasanna and band. Didn't know someone who was so comfortable with a musical instrument. His fusion of east and west is beautiful. He calls his latest album, Be the Change. True to that, he is heralding a new style to Indian Classical, fusing it with other forms, making it appealing to the younger generation. Who wouldn't love Bilahari and Hamsadhwani, the way he does it! His drummer(Jordan) almost matched him, and it was a pleasure to watch them. His Ragabop (kapi) was awesome! I wish I had the whole concert taped!

Thanks Padmasani ji, for this and the previous comment.

I am still a student, a beginner. When I see such people performing, I regret my wasted years and get more enthu to do better. When I first learnt Veena, I just repeated whatever the teachers did. Without having a clue as to the hows and whys. This time around, I seem to have a better idea. Such performers are inspirations, and some like you, are the gurus we learn from.

hellboy said...

I came across VC and Upilli's (the usual suspects in Sulekha) comments in one of the posts. this almost confirms that you are indeed the sulekha munimma :-)

good to see your blog. after discovering the blogworld, i stopped going to sulekha...

Rads said...

lol, hellboy cleared it all :--)
hey munimma, it's funny how we keep bumping into the same folks in such a huge cyberworld. I mean, the odds seem so high as opposed to what one would normally imagine.
Am from DC yo!

Munimma said...

r said...

Need to commend your memory :-) Have your blog bookmarked. I am working on mine too, will link ya. Everything else good I suppose, though I must say your commentary on classical music did take me by surprise. Later!

Munimma said...

hellboy said...
