Parampara Series 2012 - Raja Radha Reddy and Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma
Raja and Radha Reddy's Kuchipudi Performance - Parampara Series 2012 - Natya Taringini
Reviews: Maestros performed and audience were left spellbound.
Raja & Radha Reddy's performance opened the show. Most part of the show was performed along with students of their institute Nritya Tarangini. A part of Parampara series, the theme of all the Kuchipudi performances was India. Nau Ras could have been avoided. It's been performed by so many artists so many times. Overall a very enjoyable, colorful performance.
And I must mention about the chaos at the gate of Kamani Auditorium. Even half an hour before the showtime there was a mile long line of people to enter the auditorium. Online booking didn't help much as people with booking printouts had to wait after reaching the entry point to get approval to enter. Dealing with bouncers on the gate was a first of sorts for such performances.

Santoor Recital by Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma - Parampara Series 2012
Pt. Shiv Kumar Sharma's santoor performance had a therapeutic effect on nerves and senses. His music transcends you to a whole new world. One can spend a lifetime listening to his music. Though the performance went beyond 9.30 in the night and lesser mortals feel hungry and they have to go home to their families to catch a good nights sleep. Not to forget office next morning.
