The Sadguru Thyagaraja Aradhanotsavalu is the right occasion for budding musicians to showcase their talent. And for seasoned musicians, it is a chance for them to reinforce their commitment to the Trinity of Carnatic music. D Vardhani’s recital on the inaugural day of the Sadguru Thyagaraja Aradhanotsavalu conducted by Vignana Samithi at Anandanagar Community Hall will be cherished by the gathering for the years to come.

Vardhani hails from Vizianagaram and was trained under sangeetha vidwan PVS Seshaiah Sastry, who is a retired principal of the Thyagaraja Government Music and Dance College, Hyderabad. A specialist in Pallavi singing along with Manda Sudharani and Pantula Rama, Vardhani enthralled the day one audience in a devotion spell. She attempted various krithis in various ragas of Thyagaraja as a fitting tribute to the saint.

She opened her recital with Esamanohari krithi “Manasa Sri Ramachandruni” embellishing the Anupallavi charanam with great detail. In the next krithi of Kedara “Marichey Vadanaa”, she heralded the bhava of the saint in ample measure. Then she moved on to “Janakaja Sametha” (Asaveri) with ragalapana and swara vinyasam. In Neelambari raga krithi “Matladavemi Natoh”, Vardhani excelled in projecting lyrical beauty in all its fairness.

In Vardhani raga krithi, ‘Manasa Mana Samardhyamemi”, she gave a good account of ragalapana and swarakalpana. She took Mohan Raga krtihi “Nanupalimpa Nadachee Vachhitivaa” as the main item of the day showing both lyrical taste and manodharma in the raga expansion and swarakalpana.

Ramaraju Dinakar gave a good following on violin while Burra Sriram on mridangam showed his magical touch in taniavarthanam along with B Janardhan on ghatam. Vardhani took Diyanama Sankeerthan’s “Sri Rama Ramaa” (Saveri), “Narayana Harey” (Yaman), “Sri Rama Jayarama” (Yadukula Kambhoji), all of which were praises of Lord Rama. Vardhanmi concluded with Pathiki Harathi Mangalam. All in all, it was a devotional music extravagance that left the audience spellbound.
