A concert by V R Dileep Kumar, including ragas Kedaragaula and Neelambari.

V R Dileep Kumar is one of the most exciting young musicians from Kerala, and he has been attracting a lot of notice in the last few years. He also performed at the Navaratri festival at the Navaratri Mantapam in Thiruvananthapuram in 2011. His renditions of the classical ragas is strictly by book; along with that, Dileep Kumar is also adept at detailed expositions of ragas such as Andolika, Behag and Brindava Saranga. He is a student of senior musician Mangad Natesan, a student of Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer. Dileep Kumar also teaches vocal music at the Agni Cultural Academy near Trichur. An unassuming person, Dileep Kumar lets his music speak for him, and quite eloquently at that. In this concert, Dileep Kumar sings ragas Neelambari and Kedaragaula in detail. As he often does, Dileep Kumar elaborates Raga Kedaragaula in the main piece, and includes a tanam along with the kriti rendition.
