Last week I had the good fortune of attending an awesome Jugalbandhi concert by Mysore Manjunath and Purbayan Chaterjee. Here is a brief report of the concert.

Jugalbandi at Sri RamasevaMandali fort school grounds Bangalore.
April 9, 2011

Mysore Manjunath - violin
Purbayan Chaterjee - sitar
Tiruvavur Bhaktavatsalam - mridanga
Vishwanath Nakod - tabla

1. Kalyani - Yaman
2. Kirvani
3. Pantuvarali - PuryaDhanashree
4. Bhajan in SindhuBhairavi

The concert started with a yaman alapna. Puryaban started the bandish. He announced in between that this was the very first compositions taught to hindustani students. He also sang a few lines - Sakiye piya bina.
Manjunath stared kirvani raga. The interesting part was a brisk sawal jawab violin mridanga.
The next item was decided on stage as pantuvarali - puryadhanashri. Manjunath explained the greatness of Indian classical music that it requires no rehearsal as the whole concert is improvised. He said they had met just 20 mins before the concert. After a soothing alap started an mesmerizing tana. It was followed by Tani where mridanga tabla sawal jawab exchanges were very well recieved. The ending part of tani was captivating where the mridanga and tabla played in unision and blended perfectly.
The concluding item was a bhajan in sindhu bhairavi.
Overall, it was a good concert offering the best of both Carnatic and Hindustani stlyes of Indian classical music.
