Incredible Sivamani

Hiteswara 2007 organized by Shakthi Foundation

What a treat to see Mandolin U. Srinivas, Shankar Mahadevan, Sivamani & Ustad Zakhir Hussain performing together? It was simply amazing. Last Saturday, they were on for Shakthi Foundation and I enjoyed every minute of it..

Shankar Mahadevan @ Hiteswara 2007
Shankar Mahadevan did 'raga alabanais' just as masterfully as he does his melodious numbers for films.. He was brilliant..
