Bangalore, November 25, 2010

Two great musicians, carnatic vocalist Sudha raghunathan and jazz hero Amit Heri, mesmerized the audience with charm and fine music at November Fest event sponsored by The Hind.

After working together for the film Morning Raga, they seem to have blended well with music. The duo started the concert with Mahaa ganapatim song which is an invocation to Lord Ganesha, the remover of all hurdles and evils.

Another song Mathe, from the same film silenced the audience through its melody.

Ms. Raghunathan said, the music combination of Jazz with carnatic, is a ‘tradition with a twist’.

Jeoraj George on the drums, Embar Kannan on the violin, Thiruvayur Vaidyanathan on the mridangam and Giridhar Udupa on the ghata Karl Peters on the bass guitar, entertained everyone with their expertise.

Later, they enthralled the audience with the song composition Thaye Yashoda. Amit rendered a peace song of his own composition, followed by Krishna nee Begane Baaro.

Ms. Raghunathan ended the programme with a tillana.
