For several people, Shilparamam's weekend concerts are the raison d'etre for the week. Yes, it's a bad day to live with a bandh - and perhaps they won't.
Shilparamam, as part of the weekend, is presenting a devotional Carnatic vocal recital by Deepa Ramesh, this Saturday. The instrumental support for the recital will be provided by Srinivas on the mridangam and Shiva on the violin.
Deepa will sing some devotional keertanas, like Annamacharya's Brahmamokkate in Bowli ragam, Muddugare Yashoda in Kurunji ragam and Anni Mantramuluninde in Amruthavarshini ragam; Thyagaraja's Eesha Pahimam in Kalyani ragam and Melukovayya Sringararaya in Bowli ragam; Kabir Das's Gurukripa Anjana in Desh ragam; and other keertanas.
Deepa Ramesh started learning music at a young age in Chennai under Guru Srinivas in Chennai. Thereafter, she learnt under Somanna, Kamala Ramani and Vasanthi in Chennai. After shifting to Hyderabad, she is currently under Sirisha.
She is a Yuvavani artiste of the All-India Radio, Hyderabad. She taught at the S S Music Academy in Mehdipatnam for sometime. Due to her family obligations, she has limited her performances to places like Satyasai Nigamagamam. Her husband is a general surgeon at the Apollo Hospitals, Jubilee Hills.
