December comes and goes, but the music season stays on ...

The 'season' comes to an end with the 'sadas' at the Music Academy. Many sabhas continue their music festivals into January though.

The music continues to go on. Thyagaraja Aradhana is January, Thirupoonthuruthi Narayana Teertha festival, Gopalakrishna Bharathi festival in February-March, Mummoorthigal Jayanthi in March-April and then the music goes to the other side of the globe. Cleveland Thyagaraja Aradhana during the Easter week is a big event for the musicians and the rasikas in the Big Apple.

And then from June begins the discussions on the awards for the next music season. What follows is Adi Music Festival in Chennai, Gokulashtami series, Vinayaka Chaturthi concerts and then the Navaratri concerts. And lo, the next 'December Season' comes just after the non-stop music through the year.

Being a website for the 'season,' for 7 years now, we want to keep this website just that. We debated on what we do for the music that flows through the year and now we have a new place for the music throughout the year.

We have named it Nadalokam - World of Carnatic music. We move to this place from January to October / November, only to get back to our 'season' hub.

Now you can find news, views, reviews at http://nadalokam.blogspot.in/

Hope to meet you all there till we meet again in this space!
