6/21/2014    Sadasiva Brahmedral Aradhana, NY

Shruti Laya takes great pride in announcing the Fifth Sri Sadasiva Brahmendral Aradhana, presented in colloboration with the Kanchi Kamakoti Seva Foundation.

The program will consist of a group singing of five of the Saint's krithis. As in the recently concluded Thyagaraja Aradhana, all music teachers, advanced students and artists in our area are invited and requested to participate in this group singing. We hope that music teachers will encourage their students to learn atleast some of these krithis, and experience the joy of singing in a group on stage.

This will be followed by a grand thematic concert of the Saint's songs by Sri. Prasanna Venkatesh. He will be accompanied on violin by Sri. A.R.Balaskandan and mridangam by Yazhpanam Shenthuraan Tharmarajah.

The songs selected for group singing are given below. Participants are requested to follow this audio precisely (tempo, number of sangathis etc.,) so that the group singing is coherent.
