For those in the Bay Area:
I’ll be flying up that morning just for the concert. I haven’t heard this specific combination since 2005, which was when Delhi Sunder Rajan gave one of his first vocal concerts in Los Angeles. That concert was unforgettable, as I am sure this will be. Delhi Sunder Rajan is one of the top-ranked violinists of his generation, and his vast knowledge and creativity overflow into his singing as well. I’ve said before that all the top Carnatic musicians (including me :P) have a deep knowledge of vocal music, and violinists are no exception. I also don’t need to gush on about my guru Neyveli Narayanan sir’s playing, but the chemistry that he and Delhi Sunder Rajan have is really something special.
