K. J. Yesudoss will perform at Sree Ramaseva Mandali on Sunday, April 8 and expect a record attendance under the Big PandaL.
Yesudoss performs rarely in Bengaluru but he keeps his date at Chamarajpet, which he has been doing for many decades. When he first performed here he got paid ten rupees. In recent times, he has declined to accept a renumeration and the mandali says he continues to do so.
Since his is a rare concert, tickets get sold much in advance and the pandal may well be packed to the edges this Sunday as it happened last year.
Accompanying Yesudoss are S.R. Mahadeva Sarma (on violin), T. Bakthavatsalam (on mridangam) and T. Radhakrishnan (khanjira).
