THE SOUTH Indian Cultural Association (SICA) will organise a four-day Carnatic musical/dance programme for its members from February 23 at SICA Hall, 14, Sanghi Colony.
This is the first time in SICA’s history that they are organising a four-day music/dance programme. Last year they had held a Carnatic musical festival and this year they have gone one step ahead by organising music and dance programme (Mohini Attam) for members.
On February 23, Madhuri Deshmukh would perform Mohini Attam. Madhuri is a lecturer of dance in University of Mumbai and she is a graded Doordarshan artist. On February 24, Carnatic vocal recital by Gayatri Venkataraghavan will be held. She is an ‘A’ grade artist in All India Radio.
On February 25 (Saturday) there will be a flute recital by Sikil Mala Chandrasekhar, an ‘A’ grade artist of All India Radio.
On Sunday there would be two programmes. In the morning Master Abhinav Muralidharan would perform Carnatic music on keyboard and in the evening there will be Carnatic music-vocal by T V Ram Prasad, an ‘A’ grade artist in All India Radio.
These performers will be accompanied on violin by Mullai Vasai Chandra Mouli, on Mrudhangam by J Vaidyanathan - first percussionist to receive the Yuva Kala Bharathi Award - and on Ghatam by Trichy K Murali. On all days the programme would start at 6.30 pm, while on Sunday the first programme would start at 11 am, said SICA secretary R Sunder.
