This premier Indian classical music event featured vocal performances by acclaimed duo Ranjani and Gayatri. Their splendid vocal rendition and their handling of various ragas at ease were the highlight of the wonderful evening. The audience absolutely enjoyed the show put up by the artists.
The evening began with the lighting of the traditional lamp by the dignitaries including the Guest-of-honour, Mr. M.S. Swaminathan, Chairman, M.S. Swaminathan Research Foundation and Mr. N. Murali, President, The Music Academy Madras.

HCL has not only been supporting the artists but in keeping with their commitment to the Indian performing arts, the company has also been nurturing audience development and enhancing the pleasure that audiences derive from the artistic experience.
