I have finally done it. At long last. I actually brought my recorder with me and recorded last Friday’s VidyA concert that took place at the Red Poppy Art House as part of YBCA (Yerba Buena Center for the Arts) Bay Area Now series. The recorder was actually placed behind us, because there was no other place to put it, but you can still hear everything pretty well.
I felt the concert went quite well musically and I think its mainly a result of trying to keep the songs fresh every time and take chances with the compositions.
I decided to make a part of it available online for you to download and enjoy. This is the first part of the 2nd set. A new ragamalika (multiple raga) exploration that segways into Kauveri, which happens to be another song with multiple ragas. Click the link below to download (right-click to save it).
