Many devotional keertanas from annamacharya and performances by the folk troupes from different regions will soothe the pilgrims. The aim is to make them refresh so that they can enjoy the brahmotsavas with a devotional mind.
This year we have planned and arranged all the performances including the bhajanas and devotional songs in the bhajana mantapams at the mada streets and other listed performances in the Nada Nirajanam and Asthana mandapam in tirumala and Mahati, Shilparamam and in annamayya kalakshetram at tirupati.

The OSD in charge of the all projects Sri N Mukteswara Rao of TTD said that.
The focus this year is mostly on the performance of various artists at the Bhajana mantapams located on the Mada Street. As all the galleries will be filled with the devotees after completing the darshan in Srivari Temple, the artists keep the devotees sit on their seats with their performance of bhajans, Govinda nama smaranams or devotion sangeet and many other keertanas with little breaks with the passing of the Vahana seavs of Lord Malappaswamy on the mada streets. ‘We are very excited to become partners at the mada street galleries by connecting all the artistes in Govinda nama smaranam and also conjointly in bhajans ‘said by Nirmala Kulkarni, an artist from Nanded conjointly sung an Annamacharya sankirtans.
