Vikku has the unique distinction of performing with three generations -- himself, son V. Selvaganesh, and grandson S. Swaminathan -- in different instruments. The ‘Laya Samarpanam’ by Vikku Vinayakram and his team of V. Selvaganesh (percussion), Swaminathan (konnakkol and ganjira), Rajasekhar (mrudangam) and Ganesan (morsing) started off with an invocation to Kanchi Paramacharya. Thetakudi Harihara Vinayakram, also known as Vikku Vinayakram, a Grammy Award-winning percussionist, kept the audience in thrall at Lakshmi Sundaram Hall during his ghatam concert at the 66th anniversary concerts of Sathguru Sangeetha Samajam on Wednesday. Ghatam’s measured strokes and other percussionists’ kalapramanam added vibrancy to tani by the team individually and the 3Gs in unison. Of course, Vinayakram stole the show with his unmatched strokes (with four ghatams of different rhythms) and, in the end, they played in unison and made it an enlivening concert.
