Sanjay on a roll these days… He just seems to be defining new peaks as he enthralls his audiences with power, eloquence and mastery over his renditions.

His over 3.5 hour concert under the CMANA fall series 2012, was simply a treat to listen too.
His concert was one of those rare unhurried full fledged concert that started with a traditional varnam and ended with thukdas. This is such a rare treat these days. He covered a plethora of ragas including, devamrithavarshini, nattai, hamsadwani and his unhurried ragamalikka during RTP was certainly an highlight.

His mastery and ability to enthrall audiences is simply divine. Now, couple that with some superb accompanists, and you have a simply outstanding evening added to your memories.
This is what S Varadarajan on Violin and Neyveli B Venkatesh on Mridangam added to this fascinating evening.

Again, it was a delight to see the local NJ rasikas, not leaving their seats during the Thani. I always have appreciated this about our US audiences, and hope the indian audiences can follow suit. Its really very sad when artists like TM Krishna plead for the audiences not o get up and leave during the tani avartanam. Kudos to the US audience for enjoying equally the percussion during the concerts.
