Touching latent aptitude, flair and gift of students many, Prasanthi Nilayam is into a constant soul-searching exercise of talent grooming vide its prestigious Sathya Sai Mirpuri College Of Music that had its inception way back in 2001 at the Divine Hands of Bhagawan Sri Sathya Sai Baba. Yes, the Sathya Sai Mirpuri College Of Music is Bhagawan’s priceless courtesy to the world of music.
Presenting rich talent galore before the Master Supreme, young talents from the Institute coupled with the Department Of Music at SSSIHL presented a soulful musical evening today in Prasanthi Nilayam.
Commencing with a holistic commentary on the efficacy of the Pranava Nada AUM, the boys began with ‘Akara Ukara Makara Puttaparthi Saiiii Dhama…’, a number describing the Beauty Beyond Compare glory of Beloved Mother Sai and the land that did penance finally earning His priceless presence, Puttaparthi. The next piece, a Pt Ravishankar composition, was an instrumental piece involving sitar, tabla, mridangam, violin, guitar, kanjira instrumental followed by two St Thyagaraja pieces, Samaja Vara Gamana and Bantureethi Kolu. An instrumental ensemble of Carnatic Violin and Saraswathi Veena was the next number followed by an innovative Shyamala Mohana Murali Manohara, coupled with a Prasanthi Bhajan. A scintillating mridangam recital followed by an equally invigorating thillana followed next, before the final ‘Hindustani’ Sufi offering, ‘Thore Bina Mohe Chain Na Aaye…’, a dedication on Beloved Lord Krishna.
Bhajans next concluded with Mangala Arathi to Bhagawan.
