12 year old US School student presents Mikeless Kutcheri

As part of the monthly Sunday Kutcheri in the Park organized by Sundaram Finance, 12 year old Mayuri Srivaths, a class VII student of Nolan Ryan Junior High School, Pearland, Texas, USA presented a lively vocal carnatic music performance at the Nageswara Rao Park in Mylapore this Sunday (July 2) morning between 6.30am and 730am.


Mayuri Srivaths, who is learning music from Vidushi Smt. Rajarajeshwary Bhat, was accompanied on the Violin by Vibhu Ravindran (Disciple of Lalgudi Srimathi Brahmanandam) and on the Mridangam by A Rohith (Disciple of Kalaimamani Thiruvarur Sri Bakthavathsalam)


Applauded by a big Sunday morning crowd that had gathered around the Chess Square, Mayuri presented compositions that included Sri Muthuswamy Dikshithar’s Saraseeruhasanapriye (Nattai / Adi), Sri Thyagaraja’s Harikamboji alapana (Rama Nannu Brovara/ Roopakam), Sri Papanasam Sivan’s Karpagame Kan Paarai (Madhyamavathi/ Adi), Sri Shyama Sastry’s Sari Evvaramma (Bhairavi, Khanda Jhampa) with alapana, neraval, swaram and Sri Neelakanta Sivan’s Anandanatamaduvar Tillai, (Poorvikalyani/Roopakam).


Mylapore MLA Nataraj presented certificates and mementos to the artistes.


Launched in February 2006, the idea of the Sunday Kutcheri in the Park is to provide opportunities to young budding talent aged below 15 years to present in front of an informal park audience amidst chirping birds and falling leaves. In the past too, students from the US, Dubai and the Middle East have presented Kutcheri in the Park.
