Adi thalam thani

Just recorded this at home a few days ago:

There was a strict 12 minute time limit for the recording, which is why I rushed at the end to complete the mohara and korvai. It’s insane how I managed to end on exactly 12 minutes to the dot. I had planned a rough outline in my head of some of the things I wanted to include (such as the beginning sequence with chatusram/tisram and the first korvai in 3 speeds), but the rest is pretty much improvised. If I had timed things better, I would have played the final farens, mohara, and korvai in kandam (5 per beat).
