Bahumukhi by Sadhana
Sadhana takes pride in releasing the second video of its Bahumukhi series. Today we have Smt. Aishwarya Vidhya Raghunath, noted Carnatic musician sharing with us some moments from her journey in music and art. She has been trained under the likes of Smt. Seethalakshmi Venkatesan, Sri P S Narayanaswamy and Smt. Vegavahini Vijayaraghavan and is one of the most followed young musicians of today. Apart from the talented musician that she is, she is also a very accomplished artist. Sadhana thanks her for her wonderful video which has been so professionally and creatively handled by Sri Vivek Aaraga. Here is the much awaited episode featuring Aishwarya.
Veena Pustaka Dharini- Sriranjani Santhanagopalan and Aishwarya Vidya Raghunath
On Day 2 of Navaratri, Vidushi Aishwarya Vidhya Raghunath and I come to your Pooja/Golu with a grand composition of Sri Muttuswamy Deekshitar in the Raga Vegavahini in Misra Jhampa. A classic Brinda-Mukta school treasure that Vidwan Tiruvarur Girish was kind enough to share with me almost a decade ago, this is not an easy compostion to master. Thanks to some audio delays, we were able to practise this several times (and I mean several times 😆 ) to ensure that we were one with the Tanpuras (aren’t they both beautiful btw?) I wish there was a way to describe the vibration in the hall when we were singing this beauty- these are moments that I will cherish forever. Infinite thanks to Aishwarya for taking the time to come home and share her rock solid Patantharam with me. And many thanks to my brother, Shankara Prasad Santhanagopalan (Meera Santhanagopalan) for his patience with the audio. In my humble opinion, these are compositions to be treasured and celeberated. Singing, listening to these compositions give us that much needed equipoiose in thought, actions and Prana.
