The divine-stringed instrument of goddess Saraswati called 'Kacchapi' and another of the sage Narada called 'Mahati' are said to have descended to the earth for mankind, and moulded themselves as the seven-stringed instrument Veena. And so it is that its sound is celestial and its form arched and graceful. The Veena is known as the queen of all instruments of the South Indian stage, and boasts of an enchanting strength and form. And when such an instrument is played with the deserving nimbleness producing that heavenly music, it is bound to take the listeners into a realm above the earth.

The same aspects of beauty and melody were demonstrated once again by Geetha Krishnamurthy, whose Veena recital for the SICA festival enthralled the audiences. Sahaana, a composed and feminine melody of Varnam, was a subtle start. The tempo gradually rose with harmonies like the auspicious Nata ("Sarasiruha Nayana"), a speedy Hamsanada ("Bantureeti Koluvu" of Thyagraja) and a cheerful Bahudari ("Brova Bharama").

The central piece of the recital was "Enduku Peddala" in Shankarabharana, which had an elaborate treatment of its building phases. Over ten such select classical numbers surged through the instrument with a telling spirit. Percussionist C Selva Raju and Ghatam artist A S Shankar provided the beat and spirit to the pure abstract chorals.
