We might have heard the expansive Swarajati of Shyama Sastri in Bhairavi as sung by the Pitamaha, Semmangudi Srinivasa Iyer, who more or less patented the same.

So it was a bit surprising when I heard the same piece sung by Chembai, because Chembai was not known to have rendered this often. It was a different experience altogether... it seemed to me to be a mix of Semmangudi and MDR's styles.

Hear it yourself at http://rapidshare.de/files/10635486/CVB ... rajati.mp3

Alternatively, it can be accessed by clicking the "Audio Folder" link at the top-left of this page, and entering the password "carnatic" when required.

Dear Friends,

I will be in Chennai for a day and a half (before I proceed on a detailed and long trip down south) on 10th and 11th of this month. Will it be possible to share a glass of beer or two with all those of you who are in Chennai - and ofcourse get to know you better. In case most of you might come out with a response that "I do not drink" - no problems at all - u can definitely clink my glass with yours (filled with coke or orange or lemon.......).

I would defnitely like to meet as many people as possible. Please suggest a suitable venue and time.

Thanks,

Param

Mahesh,

I have uploaded track-wise because rapid-share hangs up when I load a big file. Despite the drawback of a wait time, I believe that you would be able to complete the exercise within a day or two.

This is a 11.9.66 concert of Chembai at Mumbai. The person delivering the opening speech that runs for about 20 minutes, speaks of the greatness of Chembai.
