Sanhita Nandi's performance was one of the highlights of the 24 hours Raga Samay festival in Philadelphia.One of the leading vocalists of the Kirana gharana,her singing at the festival was serious, imaginative and inspired.That being said, hers was the best vocal performance at the festival.
Sanhita's thoughtful, gimmick-free and almost meditative rendition brought the shringhar ras (romantic mood) of the raag to life.
