Good morning. This is Dave sitting in the chat room this morning. Jayashri is hosting the show.
Jayashri Nagaraja 9:28:27 AM
Thank you David. Had computer issues this morning
Sangeet Team (host) 9:29:24 AM
Will you be taking over in the chat room? I can step out.
Jayashri Nagaraja 9:34:17 AM
okay
Sangeet Team (host) 9:41:16 AM
If you want to or you can stay and chat.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 9:42:32 AM
Sure. It will avoid confusion if you delete these messages.
Sangeet Team (host) 9:43:24 AM
Late start seems to have driven our usual chattees (new term :-) awa
Sangeet Team (host) 9:43:46 AM
Did you have a good Thanksgiving?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 9:45:00 AM
It was alright. Just immediate family. Did you meet folks for the holiday?
Sangeet Team (host) 9:45:56 AM
No, just my mom and me
Sangeet Team (host) 9:46:42 AM
Both your kids are in colleges, right?
Sangeet Team (host) 9:47:57 AM
I have always wanted to interview Sanhita Nandi for the show but never got around to it
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 9:48:10 AM
Both finished their bachelors. Planning graduate school.
Sangeet Team (host) 9:48:33 AM
Wow! Good for them. Congrats to you.
Sangeet Team (host) 9:56:28 AM
Sanhita Nandi is from Kirana gharana, learnt from Late A. Kanan, and then Vinayak Torvi and Mashkoor Ali Khan
Sangeet Team (host) 10:10:18 AM
Have you started going back to in person concerts?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:18:50 AM
Not yet. Chinmaya Mission in Cranberry has had a couple of good events, but I was not in the mood to go.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:19:52 AM
The weekend of nov. 12 was my first foray
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:21:21 AM
I technically did see a concert - a chamber music concert of piano, violin, flute. It was a house concert.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:21:38 AM
Kunnakudi M Balamuralikrishna added the "Kunnakudi" to distinguish himself from the renowned singer M. Balamuralikrishna
Sangeet Team (host) 10:21:49 AM
Cool'
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:22:03 AM
Who did you see on Nov. 12?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:22:43 AM
the playlist does not appear to be updating.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:24:11 AM
You are right.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:24:42 AM
The last time it happened, Mike said it was because the piece was long. This isn't
Sangeet Team (host) 10:25:24 AM
oh, I have the wrong time. I put in 10.31
Sangeet Team (host) 10:25:36 AM
oversight
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:25:49 AM
You may need to manually trigger the updates.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:26:19 AM
How do I do that? Edit playlist?
Sangeet Team (host) 10:26:49 AM
Got it
Sangeet Team (host) 10:27:15 AM
Good to know
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:27:27 AM
Yes. Edit playlist. You can back date the timings and the playlist will post whichever time you put in.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:27:51 AM
There is also a button that says "now" which is useful!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:28:55 AM
Yes. I use that whenever I am broadcasting.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:29:12 AM
On Nov. 12th, I heard Gayathri Venkataraghavan and Bhuvanesh Komkali
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:29:45 AM
Ah yes, she also sang nearby in Cranbury. I regret not attending.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:30:04 AM
She always gives a good program
Sangeet Team (host) 10:30:38 AM
On 13th, I heard Swar Sharma, a young artist. Also good
Sangeet Team (host) 10:31:04 AM
Busy in-person weekend
Sangeet Team (host) 10:31:24 AM
None of your kids are into Indian classical?
Sangeet Team (host) 10:31:34 AM
or folk?
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:32:54 AM
No. The kids have developed their own tastes. They have been exposed to all sorts of music, and have good ears.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:34:10 AM
The boy was leading an a cappella group at the university.
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:36:05 AM
Do you think Kunnakkudi M Balamuralikrishna may have benefitted from the mistaken identity? People attending his events with wrong expectations?
Sangeet Team (host) 10:42:37 AM
That is great!
Sangeet Team (host) 10:43:11 AM
Possible of course... I am talking about Kunnakudi M. Balamuralikrishna
Sangeet Team (host) 10:43:55 AM
But he is a good singer. Anybody who is halfway decent would want to be recognized for their own capabilities
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 10:53:04 AM
Good point. Hence the "Kunnakkudi" distinction.
Sangeet Team (host) 10:56:46 AM
Priya is a graduate of Columbia University. Trained in both Carnatic and Hindustani styles
Sangeet Team (host) 10:56:55 AM
She is also a writer
Sangeet Team (host) 10:57:50 AM
Creator of a podcast for Children - Music and masti. https://www.musicandmasti.com/
Sangeet Team (host) 10:59:18 AM
She also trained as a western classical violinist. Multi-dimensional for sure
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 11:02:58 AM
There are some people that seem to effortlessly excel at everything. Don't tell me she is an engineer as well.
Sangeet Team (host) 11:05:10 AM
:-)
Sangeet Team (host) 11:09:06 AM
While it doesn't say anywhere what she graduated in, here is an interesting article written about her by her guru - Aditi Kaikini Upadyaya. This type of reverse article is rare. https://dhvaniohio.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/When-South-meets-North-Priya-Purushothaman.pdf
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 11:15:02 AM
According to her website, she studied Philosophy, Economics, and Creative Writing. Just a triple major? Why not quadruple?!
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 11:16:17 AM
On my other show, I played her piece where she collaborated with Dutch Jazz ensemble, Spinifex.

Sangeet Team (host) 11:28:18 AM
How was that Dutch jazz ensemble
ǝɹnɔsqꓳ ǝɥꓕ ǝʌɐꓷ 11:33:42 AM
I was not impressed. Her singing was great, but it sounded to me like she phoned it in, and they tried to blend with it. I think my expectations were too high.
Sangeet Team (host) 12:00:01 PM
Thank you for joining us today. Have a wonderful weekend
