After the first half of the concert, he performed Rag Manjh Khamaj in Ragmala style with different taalas from Dhamar to Kehrava. He ended the concert with a melodious dhun.
The program description in the booklet mentioned his appearance in the second half, however he changed the program in last minute and performed almost throughout the concert. He had difficulty tuning the instrument, and one of his students who was playing Tanpura tuned for him when he changed Ragas.
Guruji did not perform on his usual big Sitar. It looked a special model of Sitar for him, with a very light (and much flatter) lower pumpkin (like surbahar) and perhaps differnt types of tuning knobs. He had special seating arrangements with his legs dropping down, which is different from traditional seating style. But he came very strong, walked straight in and out of the stage.
