Chaitrra Sairam, a diligent artiste
CHENNAI: It was a charming recital. Her calm demeanor, clarity in diction, and focused approach gave the concert an elevation. Chaitrra Sairam is indeed a no-nonsense next generation vocalist. She went about her concert for Brahma Gana Sabha on December 16, 2013 diligently. The Reetigaula alap was graceful.
A dedicated disciple of Bombay Jayashri, Chaitrra, on many an occasion, reflected her guru in the singing style and meditative music. Traces of Jayashri’s style were evidence in her swara singing, too. Nevertheless, Chaitrra skillfully ventured into her own with her insight into music. Thyagaraja’s “Baganayya”(Chandrajyothi) was presented with aplomb. The Bilahari alapana was classical. Thyagaraja’s “Na Jeevadhara” was rendered with elan. Sanskrit sloka “Vasudeva Sutham” and Purandara Dasa’s “Yake Kadaiganinda Noduve Krishna” (Brindavana Saranga) stood out for delivery perfection. Her Vasanti thillana was exhilarating. Indeed, it was a quality concert..
