The curtain raiser for the National Convention of SPICMACAY was held at KV Pattom today evening with a performance by Pt. Hari Prasad Chaurasia. The National Convention of Spicmacay will be held in Trivandrum in the last week of May. The last time I heard him live was in 1999 during the Vasant Habba at Hesserghetta (Bangalore).
Today’s performance was very interactive with Panditji quizzing the students and explaining the various nuances of the pieces he was playing. I am looking forward to the events at the National Convention. Hope I will be able to attend some performances.
