Bala’s magical performance:

Five Months back, in March 2008, Mumbai saw the performance of a gifted unexplored and upcoming artist – Balachandra Prabhu. It was a very special occassion since Bala was performing for the first time in Mumbai.

Apart from that there was one more big reason for all of us to celebrate. It was Radio Idli’s first ever event totally sponsored by its listeners from all over the world.

Before we bring to you his recordings from the event. Here is a glimpse of his God-gifted art, from a performance at Hubli. The recording is from a function to commemorate the great Ustad Abdul Karim Khan Sahab of Kirana Gharana.

We have here in this video (to the left) two of his songs. (you may navigate using the arrow buttons that appear on the video). This video has been edited and uploaded by Bala’s elder brother Dr. Damodar Prabhu. I sincerely thank Dammu, as he is fondly known for this contribution.

Are you interested in Hearing Balachandra Prabhu live once again? He will sing for you at GSB sabha, Vashi. Be there and experience his divine performance.

  1. BALACHANDRA IS A GOOD ARTIST, BUT ON OUR PART WE HAVE TO GIVE WIDE PUBLICITY OF HIS TALENT.

  2. Dear Bala , My Sangeet Sir, Shri Narayanrao Deshpande always said that his Guruji Vishwa Vikhyat Pandit Bhimsen Joshi would say that
    ” The difference between a good singer and a great singer” is,a good singer will sing the ragas as per the notation a but a Great singer will express the ragas, as a learner myself hopefully I may be able to express in the later stage which requires a lot of riyaz. Good luck to you for your future endevours.

    Regards Ravi Gadiyar
