Pt. Dhananjay Daitankar’s, disciple of Pt. Shivakumar Sharma, Shata-tantri or Santoor concert followed in the Samay Sangeeta Yatra.

He was ably accompanied on Tabla by Sameer Puntambekar, Pune.
Noonday performance was given by Pt. Indudhar Nirodi, encyclopedia of music and senior artist. He is now involved in the mega project of recording all Vishnunarayan Bhatkhande’s works. Nuances of music were explored and introduced to the audience and students of music by him. He explained how Rag Bilawal with a light touch of rag Yaman creates a new rag Yamani Bilawal. Then sang the bandish in vilambit Tilwada taal and ‘Piya bin Kaise’ in dhrit Teen taal. Then Bandish ‘Pariye Payan’ was rendered in rag Jonpuri and ‘Aj sunao’ in rag Devgandhar. Guruprasad Hegde Giligundi, Sirsi on Harmonium and Gurumurty Vaidya on Tabla joined him.
All the music lovers were served with festival lunch to savour along with the the music for the soul.

Sarangi-Sitar jugalbandi by Ustad Fayaz Khan and Ustad Rafiq Khan in the late afternoon was the star performance. They showed beautifully how jugalbandi expounds nuances and possibilities of a rag using different instruments. Being a singer Ustad Fayaz Khan also sang the Bandish ‘Kal nahi aye’. They were accompanied deftly in tabla by tabla maestro Gurumuty Vaidya.
Two day music fest met its summit in the performance of Dr. Ashwini Bhide Deshpande of Jaipur-Atrauli gharana. Eloquent rendition of Sandhiprakashak rag Shree was followed by rag Durga, Janasammohini. Kabir bhajan in Bharavi marked the grand end to the fest. Vyasamurty Katti on Harmonium and Gurumurty Vaidya on Tabla accompanied her.
On this occasion Narendra Nayak, Vice President, Sangeeta Bharati and Harmonium artist was honoured. Soulful music of the fest Panchamada Inchara-Viveka Smriti created a musical aura in the pious atmosphere of the Math. Swami Vivekananda himself was a great musician and musicologist, thus the Concluding Ceremony of 150th Birth Anniversary Celebrations of Swami Vivekananda was made more meaningful.
On the occasion of concluding ceremony of 150th Birth Anniversary Celebrations of Swami Vivekananda “Panchamada Inchara – Viveka Smriti” – A two day Music Fest was organised by Ramakrishna Matha, Mangalore and Chirantana Charitable Trust, Surtkal jointly.
Capt. Ganesh Karnik, MLC inaugurated the Music Fest on 13-1-2014 Monday evening. Swami Jitakamanandaji, President, Ramakrishna Math, Mangalore and Sri Abraham Kurian, DGM, Corporation Bank were present on the occasion.
USTAD FAYAZ KHAN,a well known Sarangi player and singer rendered his performance on the evening of the first day of the Fest. He confessed, “I don’t sing just Dasavani. I am a Hindustani Classical singer. Hence the songs will carry a tinge of classical touch. More over I don’t sing the compositions of the famous singers.” He started his bhajan singing with ‘Modalondipe Ninage Gananatha’. Without delving much into the intricacies of Alaap and giving just a cherishing flavour of classical music he sang his own compositions ‘Ellinda Bande, Mundetta Payana’ written by Kanakadasa with a touching effect on the audience. ‘Enta Saviyo Ninna Kolalu’, ‘Na Ninna Dhyanadoliralu’ and other compositions written by Purandaradasa also won the applause of the audience. Sri Gurumurthy Vaidya on Tabla, Sri Shivakumar Mahant on Harmonium, Sri Nagaraj Shet on Taala and Sri Satish Kamath on Tanpura accompanied the artist ably.
