Kumari Deekshita does a neat job
CHENNAI, November 23: Kumari Deekshita began her concert with a rare varnam of GNB in rag Andolika and went on to sing `Karimuka’ in Natai. She adapted the swaras of Natai Pancharathnam aptly.
An alapana in Reethigowla was followed by `Ninuvina'. She then took rag Hindolam. After a neat alapana, she sang `Samaganalole’, one of the master pieces of GNB She also rendered Padabnaja in Kamas.
