Another Greater Recognition - ICCR Empanelment

It has been a serine 2017 with more time left for Practice sessions and composing time.

Sathya made his first Public performance , a ticketed show of playing film songs for ABBAS CULTURAL on the Tamizh New Year Day, 14th April with a experienced and renowned GANESH KIRUPA Orchestra. This was held at the Russian Cultural Center Hall in Chennai. This was indeed a Great success with Full House turn out.

The Bright spots are the Recognition from ICCR, another Premier Institution of India recognisning the instrument Keyboard in Classical Music and Sathya as their first Artiste to be included in their Empanelment List of Artists. This recognition paves way for Sathya's intent of taking the concept of playing Carnatic on Keyboard to a greater level and to many countries as well.

Its also a honour that Sathya has been listed in the prestigious Youth Award of excellence to be handed over by Sri Krishna Gana Sabha on the July 2nd, 2017.

Sathya will be performing a Fusion concept concert playing the contemporary carnatic krithis on the May 13th, 2017 for NADASUDHA and we look forward to seeing many of you in the audience.

We look forward to all your support, wishes and blessings, as always.

January 2016 - A Month of Recognition to the Instrument and Artiste.

It has been a grand opening this year as it was last year too! Yes with the first of this year for Sri Parthasarathy Swami Sabha on the 02nd January, it has been going great with lots of quality concert presentation. The team with Karaikal Venkatasubramanian on violin, London Balachanda on Mrudhangam and Sunil Kumar on Kanjeera enhanced the concert so well. Improvement, for the good, is clearly seen in all dimensions and the turn up of people for our Keyboard presentation are also very encouraging. 

The testing factor was the concert on the 14th January for Bhratiya Vidya Bhavan which was request on the evening of 13th around 530pm and decided to present a Thematic Navagraha Krithis concert. Requested BVB to give this information in Their Hindu advertisement the following day. To our surprise the mini all in the second floor was full and the concert also came up so well teaming uo with Madurai Venkatasubramanian on Mrudhangam, Sunil Kumar on Kanjeera and Hariharasubramanian on the Ghatam. 

Concerts in Team Rajesh Vaidhya are adding new dimensions to the approach to music and its reflected in the good way during solo presentations as well. The reach and the visibility factors are also improving and it as well helps probogate the concept of performing Carnatic on keyboard to a wider audience. 

A recognition to the Guest Judge for a reality singing competition in ETv for the legendary Sri. SPB - SP Balasubramaniam sir which was telecast on the 11th and 18th January improved reach and people all over the world are in touch. The humbleness of SPB sir was evident in both the telecast days with hism showering the greatest compliments. Look for the great moments in teh video links.

The greatest recognition for the instrument and the efforts being taken as an artiste came up with the opportunity to present a Lecture-Demonstration in the National Conference held in Chennai  by The Tamil Nadu Music And Fine Arts University, Chennai and South Zone Cultural Centre, Thanjavur. The title for teh presention was given as "Keybaord - The Trendsetter in Indian Classical Music". 

This was one of our long felt dreams to show case the potential of the instrument perse to a wider audience and this was indeed a golden opportunity. The presentation was enhanced by Adyar D. Balasubramani on Nadaswaram and Kumbakonam Swaminathan on Mrudhangam with Thirunavukarasu and Das Kennedy from Karthick Audio on the Sound. It was a grand success with The Vice Chancellor Tmt. Veenai Gayathri accepted to open a new Department for Keyboard in the University if we could directly involve in taking it on! What a Recognition for the instrument and the Artiste!

Enjoy the 9 part video playlist with the first effort to demonstrate the various aspects of keyboard and its usage in bringing our Indian Classical Music on same. 

The concert for Maha Periyava Padhugai Temple was purely divine and in fact artists and the audience, as said by one all were taken into Transe for many a moments during this concert. Thanks to the organiser who has give a lively Periyava vigragam and to a well wisher who has give another vigraham of Periyava and both Periyava's entry into our house, we are sure will make us prosperous for ever.

Immediately after this lecdom being honoured as a chief guest and children throbbing to take pictures added the value of recognition and reached heights with DD asking to give an intro for the 169th Sath Guru Thyagarajar's Aaradhana. 

While the concert with Rajesh Vaidhya at Chowdaiah Hall was Excellent in many ways including the first time jamming opportunity with Mysore Manjunath ji, the concert at Gayana Samaj was of different experience with first time jamming with Team Mahathi.
