Aradhana is a performance incorporating the classic elements of a standard Kutcheri and showcases a variety of pieces by famous composers such as Tyagaraja, Purandara Dasa, and more. Set at a fast pace in the beginning, vocalist Vaishnavi will approach simple pieces in a concise yet interesting manner, and will go on to explore the Manodharma (improvisation) aspects with the embellishment of the violin and mridangam.
Mask-wearing is optional. However, audiences are encouraged to continue to exercise responsibility and caution, such as wearing masks when in crowded places. No tickets will be issued. Seats are available on a first-come, first-served basis.
