Blog : Week 55 Updates

Dear rasikas,

We are happy to be back with our regular update.

Week 55 Update:

This week's full song is a Vinayaka Chathurthi special - Ganapathiye unthan kazhal paninden - in the evergreen raga mohanam set to adi talam, a composition of Thanjavur Shankar Iyer.

Thanjavur Shankar Iyer is one of the well known vageyyakkara (one who composes the verbal as well as the tonal-rhythmic structure of the song) of our times.  He was also a successful concert artiste and a teacher par excellence.  His compositions are known for rich musical content with extremely simple yet meaningful sahithyam.  Some of his other famous compositions which one gets to listen in carnatic concerts are - Rama namam (Desh), Ezhiludai (Hamsanadam), Nata jana palini (Nalinakanthi), Manathirkuhandathu (Sindu Bhairavi) and Ranjani ragamalika.  

That's it for this week. Have a great week ahead!
