Gayathri, Thank you for being such a great music teacher!  You have a lot of patience and high expectations and you bring out the best in everybody.  My bar for a good teacher has now been raised really high - Vidhya Sriram 

Excerpts from Phoenix concert review:

Why restrict oneself to listening to only the well known and the famous? The spiritual and devotional aspect associated with the development of the various ragas and compositions are by themselves special. There is no need that the performers have to be already famous. This was evident in a three-hour concert sung by Smt. Gayathri Satya (of Massachussetts), accompanied by Shri  Nishanth Chandran (of California) on the Violin, and Shri Rajkumar Anantharaman (of Arizona) on the Mridangam. All of them, current US residents, presented themselves as talented artists, endowed with a good aesthetic sense, and above all a humble attitude. Devotion and humility go together. . Those who could not attend, missed some very good listening…the listening experience was elevating….

In a way this concert seemed to answer my personal craving that the Ragam Thanam Pallavi should feature a major raga like Sankarabharanam, Harikambhodhi, Karaharpriya, Keeravani, Mayamalavagowla, or Thodi. Well-acclaimed artists seem to ignore them in recent times…..

All present listened to the entire concert, glued to their seats. A prevalence of devotional attitude among both the performers and the listeners resulted in a three-hour of great listening.
