Blog : Week 352 Updates

Dear Rasikas,

This week we have special song for you. One of Uma's students, Viji Ganesh, had composed a song on Kanchi Maha Periyaval and wanted Uma to tune and sing it for Raga Surabhi audience. Maha Periyaval's Jayanthi falls on May 22nd this year and can we ask for a better day to feature this song? :)

As you listen you will notice that Viji's lyrics are indeed special; she has taken a leaf out of Dikshitar's book in employing Srotavaha Yati and Gopucha Yati. Read more in Viji's blog about this composition -

This song has been tuned in Hindolam and Vasantha and sung by Uma, do click the link below to listen to the song. Special thanks to S G Balakrishna for providing excellent mridangam support, especially for agreeing to this in such a short notice.

We are happy to announce that we are extending the deadline for the Special Quiz - 350 by one more week to enable more rasika participation. Stay tuned for the results next week!

Submit your regular quiz answers and have a great week ahead!
