It was heartening to behold a musician performing with tambura sruthi when electronic gadgets have become the order of the day.
A bhava-rich Swathi Thirunal compositon — Kripaya Paalaya — was suffixed with smooth flowing Sarvalaghu swaras.
The artiste was vocalist S. Poorna Pragna Rao, who presented an elegant vocal recital at Palghat Fine Arts Society, Tharekkad.
Tambura sruthi was provided by Poorna Pragna’s wife, Bharathi.
Chinnanaatena, a rare piece in Kalanidhi, was followed by Meevalla Gunadosha in Kapi; a melodious exposition of the raga preceded the kriti.
