The organizer of this concert was head over heals in praise of Amritha Murali and one could not but agree with him after hearing the concert. She sang amazingly. The way she handled kritis like srI kamalAmbikAyAm and bhArati mAmava was commendable. The accompanying artists also played beautifully and more importantly, followed the compositions very well on their own instruments so as to embellish Amritha’s rendition of the songs.
