    Thank you for this post @Agatha83
    It is an amazing performance. I loved the boy's body language and his supreme confidence.

    Dear Cheeniya Sir,

    Glad you enjoyed the young boy’s concert. Amazing energy levels he has got to give a full time concert at such a young age, that too taking up heavy ragas like kambodhi, ragas which even senior artists find it difficult to perform. Thank you Sir for your valuable feedback.
    Wish you and your family a happy and peaceful New Year.

    Regards,
    Agatha83

    Dear kumudh31,

    Like you I have also watched his you tube videos, including Phibare Rama rasam and Kalinga narthana thillana. First time I am watching him giving a full time stage concert. God bless his talent.

    Yes. Kambodhi is a tough Raga. Ravana mesmerised Lord Shiva with this Raga and got his boons. Ravana was a great singer

    @Agatha83 ma'am
    I am another fan of this young artiste.

    While I have not yet had the privilege of attending a live concert, I have watched as many you tube videos as possible.

    I have played some videos over and over just to hear the brigas rolling off with ease and precision.
    I also like his stage presence. The right amount of body movement and facial expressions that are pleasing to the eye as well.

    Thank you ma'am for sharing this here.

    I am posting this concert where he is unfazed by a fly (close to the end of the performance) and keeps his cool . I've watched this concert multiple times.

    That remind me my recent pilgrimage to temples in & around Kumbakonam.
    2. My dad’s birth place is OOTHUKADU VILLAGE where Kalinga narthnar in all its glory can be seen at the beautiful large spacious temple.
    Thanks for the nostalgia.
    Regards.

    God can dance over hood and overboard in over joy covertly or overtly.

    Dear Krish,

    Looks like this Rahul Vellal has got a lot of fans, which I was not aware of till now. This concert was a webcast, and while watching the live chat, during the webcast, I could see a lot of Rasikas being not familiar with his name and were putting across questions as to who the guru was and whether he was from Chennai. When the Kanjira accompanist explained in the middle of the concert that Rahul’s guru was one Kalavathy from Bangalore, all our doubts got clarified.
    So here we find a great singer at a young age, the credit which all goes to the guru, his parents and Rahul who has put up a great deal of hard work to achieve this level of singing.
    Thank you for sharing one more you tube video showcasing his amazing talent.

    Dear Thyagarajan Sir,

    I was also blessed to have a wonderful darshan of the The Kalinga Narthana Krishna at very close quarters, due to lack of crowds, the day being a weekday.
    The Oothukadu village is a small one, with hardly any transport facilities or any shops nearby. We had engaged a rental car which made our journey convenient. The driver a local fellow was aware of the fact of there being no shops near the temple, asked us to buy some fruits on the wayside shop, before entering Oothukadu.
    Both Oothukadu Venkata kavi and his favorite idol Kalinga Narthana Krishna are made for each other, as one can make out from scores of his compositions on Lord Krishna.
