THE SUNSHINE STATE BECKONS
Starting with a teaching camp in Tampa, the visit to the Sunshine State of Florida culminated in a concert at the Shiva Vishnu temple of South Florida in Miami. Dr. S. Ramakrishnan, the face of mridangam in Miami accompanied us. It was a sizeable crowd, almost full to capacity, and the arrangements perfect. Local carnatic artists, teachers, jazz musicians and a cello artist were amongst the audience. After the concert there was an impromptu interactive session where questions were asked about the electronic veena and we were happy to provide the answers.
