Carnatic Vocal Arangetram: Hamsa Shanmugam

by Janani Swamy
The thorough grounding in fundamentals is a given when it comes to the students of Smt. Tara Anand- that in itself no mean feat. In the case of Hamsa Shanmugam, what was striking was her complete command and control throughout the 4 hour recital. There was not one moment of doubt or hesitation as she occupied the stage with the self-assurance of a seasoned musician. Hamsa has a natural ease with manodharma- the extemporaneous aspects of Carnatic music- and presented the creative elements with a sharp understanding of the many grammatical nuances that comprise the whole of the Carnatic idiom.
