Carnatic Vocal Concert by Smt. Gayatri Girish

I had the good fortune of attending the Carnatic vocal concert by Smt. Gayatri Girish at Ravindra Bharathi, Hyderabad on 25th June 2009. The program was organized by SICA, Hyderabad. It was a brilliant concert which presented the Carnatic music in its purest form. Violin support was given by Sri Mysore Srikanth, mridangam by Sri Neyveli Skandasubhramanyum and morsing by Sri Srinivasa Gopalan. Here is the entry of the concert on Gayatri Girish's blog.
