Another great concert

June 6, 2015

This time, it was Dr. Ashwini Bhide Deshpande. Enjoyed a lot! She sang from about 10:45 pm or so till about 12:15 am. Reminded me of all those Gururao Desphande All Night Music Mehfils (minus the bajji and chai at the gymkhana cafe) at IISc.

Heaven on earth

It is the week of musical extravaganza at IIT Bombay with the Spic Macay Third International Convention. Yesterday, I heard Prof. T N Krishnan on violin followed by Pt. Venkatesh Kumar. Majestic is the word to describe Pt. Venkatesh Kumar’s music; it was so calm and unhurried and yet packed so much of energy — a remarkable and memorable experience.
