Hi,

One line - "Wonderful treat"!!!!

Unfortunately - i missed out the first 20 mins.(My vehicle broke down - oops!) It was jam packed and i could know that, people were occupying seats by 6:00pm or so. The passes were distributed more than the hall capacity. People were upset, cursing the organisers, banging the doors and some left the venue disappointed. Neverthless some how i sneaked in and after which the maestro (her daugther introduced the troupe) came in.

Tracks played my mastero and his son (ambi)
Spanish Wave

Dont Leave me
Mother India

Wonderful!! That's a nostalgia - my college days.. more than a decade back!!! All those wonderful tracks.

Bindu - Couple of songs - english composed by her father
Narayan Subramanian - A karaoke, and then a duet song with his mother (Kavitha Krishnamurthi). (May be they are trying to promote his son, not sure though! He did this karaoke on one of hindi movie songs)
Kavitha Krishnamurthi - lullaby - that's good along with corke, and i suppose a solo song (at the beginning - which i missed)
Ambi - Accompanying his father in all the tracks he played.
Corkey - wow!!! That was wonderful harmonic player!!!!
Ernie Watts - Sax.. great player!!!

Start time: 7:00pm
End time: 10:00pm
Break: 15 mins (8:25pm - 8:40pm)
At the Venue: For sale - Last years Lakshminarayana festival album and T-Shirts.
At the end of the show - couple of guys where selling "Times" CD's (8 CDs) Classical instrumental for 500Rs (the actual cost printed on the cover Rs 2000). May be an offer on that specific time!!!!

Did any of the bangalore folks came in?

This might be most likely the Waadya set by India/Music Today group, set of 8 Carnatic Classical music CDs. Please search for more details.
