mUrige muktAya mADi koLLi. Otherwise the title of vidwan will be reconsidered 8) :D

On second thoughts, you have already been moved from the select "vidwan" group to "general" group. So any number of mistakes should be ok. :D :twisted:

Kulkarni sa'ab,
You can make as many such 'mistakes' as you want: the rendering by Voleti was simply superb with his crystal clear enunciation and calm singing; and the sound quality was A-1...just keep them coming!

Coolkarni sir,
Not to derail your sequence of posting, but can you give us some anandabhairavi krithi (favourite of Shyama sastri) when you get a chance? Thank you.

sahana priyan..no problems with your request.
actually i have kept the DKJ and TNS renderings for the latter half of my uploading schedule since i knew i was going to get my broadband at home around this time.
I did not have the heart to upload compressed tracks (with associatd loss of quality) or tracks withoput alapana etc for saving on upload times.so i had been working with small tracks till now.
from Friday it will be a "premium" upload .

Can somebody post Durusuga in the raga Saveri for everyone's hearing pleasure. Would be if someone could provide the meaning of the composition.

(DELETED- DO NOT POST EMAIL AND REQUEST COMMERCIAL/COPYRIGHT MATERIALS ON THIS FORUM)

Thanks, in advance.

I may be too silly to ask this. Has shyama sastri composed any kriti praising some other deity than ambal?

I vaguely remember reading somewhere about existance of some such kriti(s?)
