Harikatha Seetharama Kalyanam Live Performance in USA

One more valuable retrieval from archives 4 decades after the performance and a decade after Brahmasri T.S. Balakrishna Sastrigal attaining the Divine Aboard. The depth and variety of TSB's repertoire made his portrayal of the same subject different from time to time. Accordingly this Seetharama Kalyanam Discourse performed in USA was a total dedication to the vision of Saint Thyagaraja. For all those who want to meditate with “Bhakti soaked in Music”, this is a two hour treat.

On Brahmasri T. S. Balakrishna Sastrigal (1919-2003)
Born in Thiruvidaimaruthur, near Kumbakonam in Tamil Nadu, he began performing at the age of 23 and held sway over Harikatha Kalakshebam for over 6 decades. See more..

A former senior executive of State Bank of India, his very name was synonymous with this traditional art of story-telling. With an amazing and unmatched command over the Vedas, Puranas, Sastras, classical music and a score of languages, he held the audience spell-bound with his flair, fervour, felicity of expression and a resonant voice. Among the countless titles and honors that were conferred on him, the title "Harikatha Rathnakara" bestowed on him by both the Paramachariyals of Kamakoti and Sringeri peetams simultaneously at Asthika Samaj, Chennai in the year 1966 stands out. Sangeetha Nataka Academy, Delhi honored him in1993. Music Academy, Chennai conferred on him the Sangeetha Kala Acharya Award in 1997.
