Mylapore Arts Academy recently organised its 19th music festival at BVB, Mylapore. Crowds could be seen swaying to the tunes of Akkarai Sisters, Sikkil Gurucharan, Cuddalore S. J. Janani, K. Bharatsundar and N. Vijaysiva. More than 500 people attended this free for all concert held from Oct 13 – 19. The halls were so crowded that rasikas could be seen standing for hours to enjoy the performances of their favourite singers. Though the rains dampened the enthusiasm of the rasikas on Oct 17 and 18, they were back in full force to enjoy the performance of N. Vijaysiva and his group on Oct 19.
