East Fort, Trivandrum:  When you watch small ripples of water fighting each other, when you sit by a seashore and feel the cool breeze touch your face gently, when you stare at the endless sky above, there would be music in your mind. If you close your eyes and listen to Sindhu Bhairavi in aadi thaalam, your mind may conjure up these images for you. It did for me as I heard the flute and vocal concerts today at the Levi Hall here, organised as part of the Akashvani Sangeeth Sammelan.

The flute concert was led by TR Srinath, with V Nalina Mohan at the violin, KU Jayachandra Rao at the mridangam, ASN Swami at the kanjira. It would be broadcast by the All India Radio (AIR) on November 18, at 10pm.

An accomplished flautist from Karnataka, Srinath is a winner of the All India Radio Music Competitions in 1996.
