#1 Mira Bai

Mira Bai , the rajput princess was trained deeply in both music and religion . Her devotion through her Lyrical songs of devotion to Lord Krishna were and are extremely popular. For many ignoramus, the movie Mira where vidushi MS Subhalakshmi acted was such a watershed movie with popular songs.

Many musicians with the start of MS amma have taken MiraBai songs and sung in CM . Few days back i had a doubt on meghmalhar and brindavana saranga of the composition barsE badariya . Checking on youtube i just found they both are not the same despite considerable overlap.

Ranjani Gayatri singing barsE bAdariya in mEgh Malhar , while alapana of Megh Malhar has so much overlap with brindavana saranga ,but as song starts the trajectory of both ragas are so different

Maharajapuram Santhanam singing barsE badariyA in brindvanasAranga , just forwarded the link to the start of the song

While browsing I just discovered Sreevalsan Menon singing the same barsE badariya in miyankimalhar(hope i am right)
https://youtu.be/oRMs8trLI2M?t=255 . Menon recording is from an album blending with slokhas from kalidasa.

Others can add few more pointers on different songs of mira bai.
