Ranjani and Gayathri, are sisters who are talented, well known carnatic musicians famous for their abhang renditions. It is indeed a sight to watch, and heavenly to hear. This particular piece one of my all time favourites, is a marati abhang which captivated me to the core- ‘Pandaricha Bootamote’.My favourite part is when they take turns to freestyle and play with the notes and present a very beautiful structure of the Raga Chandrakauns. Towards the end, the pace picks up, heating up the attention of the audience. They are ably accompanied throughout by a violinist, mridangist and ghatam vidwan.

Happy Margazhi Mahotsavam!
