Radio Idli’s first songbird.. Archana Kamath brings to us two amazing renditions, one in hindi and the other in Tamil. Both composed by A. R. Rehman. Here’s wishing that Archu gets to sing the original recording of a great composion for the world to hum.. Nevertheless.. the magic of her voice is here as ever!
She has thrilled us in Konkani, Hindi, English and even Sanskrit. This time around Archana brings to us an alltime favorite song – Surmayee Akhiyon Main from the movie Sadma… in its original Tamil form! Hear it right here!
“Birds of a feather flock together” is a very old proverb that we are all familiar with. Two wise men viz. Dr Sudhakar Rao and Mr Seetharam Kamath had many a discussion in 1985 in bringing together the flock of Konkanis in the UK and the first meeting for this was held in May in 1986 at Kingsbury in London. Since then the Sabha has been growing in strength, gathering Konkanis both young and old, from up and down the country and from all walks of life to celebrate our rich cultural heritage and enjoy festivals together.
Manu Kamath thrilled us sometime back by sharing with us videos of his live performance. The star of Ahmedabad is back with a much more deeper composition. A Fusion which was a result of his jamming with his Sarod playing friend Avik. We share with you here an amazing fusion rendition of Vande Mataram (Rag Desh) on Sarod by Avik and Guitar by Manu. What Manu describes here as a rough cut would certainly cut deep, the mind of any music lover, we are sure!
Radio Idli’s first and favorite artist – Archana Kamath, performed her magical spell of bhajans at the lotus feet of Shrimad Sudhindra Teertha Swamiji. She performed at the divine occassion of His Holiness’ Chaturmaas at Dahisar Shri Kashi Matth Samsthan. As always, for our delight she has immediately uploaded the videos and shared it right here… Listen and Be Blessed! Jai Shri Krishna!
