Banyan Tree’s Dakshinayan Carnatic music concerts are looked forward to by the Capital’s music lovers every year as it brings popular artistes from south India. This year too Chennai-based flute artiste Shashank Subramanyam and vocalist Bombay Jayashri were featured in the festival which was held recently at the Kamani Auditorium. Jayashri started her recital with a composition of Patnam Subramanya Aiyyar “Paridanamiccite” in the raga Bilahari. Jayashri prefixed the song with a brief raga alapana and suffixed it with swarakalpanas. She then embarked to the ragam-tanam-pallavi session and presented the pallavi “Va Guha Muruga Shanmugane unadu padame thunai” in the raga Shanmukhapriya and set to Adi tala. Earlier, in a scintillating delineation of the raga, she brought out its features to the fore. The subsequent tanam rendition was delightful. The ragamalika swarakalpanas in the ragas Kalyani, Ananda Bhairavi and Vasantha, besides in Shanmukhapriya added lustre to the session.
