IN SILICON VALLEY
We were in California last week for a concert for “Lotus” in Sunnyvale on June 21st, and a five-day workshop on Dikshitar kritis in Fremont from June 23rd through 27th. The response, warmth of the people and the enthusiasm was quite overwhelming. It was a pleasure to play with Sri Sriram Brahmanandam, a member of the illustrious Lalgudi family, and a senior mridangam artist in the Bay Area, . It was nice to interact with learned rasikas and some veena players of the area after the concert.
