#132 Mr. Somasundaram, God Appointed Singer

Post by vallknowme » 25 Oct 2014, 22:38

Mr. Somasundaram is AN ABSOLUTE GENIUS. Listening to a concert by Madurai, the greatest ever and more, Somu where he tells the violinist (probably in the Madurai accent, not sure) - "Chandru, appidiye lipt (lift) kudukreenga enakku" .

What a pleasure to listen to Somu, the God appointed singer.

Rsachi, thanks for sharing the concert.

In another concert, I was listening to in the morning...the genius goes like --> "I want it yagain (again)" --> and the violinist repeats the phrase he just played...same concert...he imitates Bhade Ghulam and groans ....

GEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEENIUUUUUUUUUUUSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS..

MADURAI SOMU COMES DIRECTLY FROM GOD..

Pasupathy Sir
I read two articles since it is thamizh and I took my time to read it . It is just wonderful such a great musician with absolutely zero ego.He was totally at ease and kept rasikas in bliss . Thanks to you and also raju asokan who is the biggest somu fan.

His house at Lake Area in nungambakkam is very close to my house . I used to play street cricket during some days in 80's near his house . I knew he was a singer and I also knew he has sung that famous song marudha malai mAmaniyE but never knew his carnatic pursuits that much . On a funny note, there is a saloon near his house where many in our area used to go for haircut , I have heard many anecdotes where when he comes to saloon and during his hair cut or when he waits for his turn he used to sing. I vaguely recollect once I was a witness not sure what he sang may be it was a tOdi or shanmughapriya but must have had a lot of scissor cut sangathis with no scissor cut censor :D . He took his music to masses with shear love and bhakthi .

தம் குருநாதர் சித்தூராரை நினைத்து காண்களில் நீர் ததும்ப, கைகள் நடுங்க, வாய் துடிக்க, "எந்தன் குருவே சித்தூரார்" என்றும், "இசை லய ஞானமெல்லாம் இந்த சோமனுக்க சொல்லிக் கொடுத்த அந்த சுப்பிரமணியன்" என்றும் கச்சேரி இடையிடையே நினைந்து போற்றுவார்.

தம் குருநாதர் பற்றி ஆபேரி இராகம், ஆதி தாளத்தில் ஒரு பாடலும் இயற்றி தம் கச்சேரிகளில் பாடியுள்ளார். அப்பாடல் வருமாறு.

பல்லவி:
ஏழுமலை வாசனுக்கும் எங்கள் மதுரை செக்கனுக்கும்
எப்பவுமே ஒரு சொந்தமுண்டு

அனுபல்லவி:
கூடிவரும் அன்பருக்கு சொக்க பெருமான்
சோலைமலை அழகனுக்கு மைத்துனர் முறையாம்

சரணம்:
ப்ரணவ பொருளை சோமசுந்தரருக்கு
சொல்லி தந்த சீடன் சுப்பிரமணியம்
ஸ்ருதி ஞான ஸ்வரலய ஞானங்களெல்லாம்
சொல்லித் தந்த குருவாம் சுப்பிரமணியம்
இந்த சோமனுக்கு சொல்லித் தந்த குருவாம்
சித்தூர் சுப்பிரமணியம்

CACM Sir, these 2 lines speaks volumes of Sri Somu's genius. What perhaps have been written over number of pages or spoken over hours have been beautifully summed up in 2 lines :) A GREAT GREAT ARTIST INDEED !
