sorry meena - Thanks for showing interest in this thread. I have been out of my main operating hub - i.e. my den at Thana (where I have housed all the music) due to the New Year Bash, etc., I hope to be back in the cave this Saturday. Do bear with me till then.

Thanks,

Param
PS: I work chiefly with the Russians and their Christmas is tomorrow and their New Year is on 13th of Jan But will definitely upload it before this date.

Meena/Srkris,

I also had a feeling that some of these at least (if not all) are commercially available - which is why I opened up a folder at rapidshare and an storing it there - trust this would not be called a foul.

Anecdotes - hmmm - have a lot - may be I need to put it down as text files and then keep uploading one after the other

Cheers,

Param

srkris,

edited as requested. Give me two days and the stuff on rapidshare will also be deleted. I am asking two days, since a pal of mine wants to download it today/tomorrow.

Thanks for your understanding.

Cheers,
Param

Param,
The Bajan's that you posted are all not mIrA's:
Tracks 1 and 2 are mIrA's
Track 5 is a kabIr Bajan
and the remaining tracks (if memory serves me right) are compositions of sUrdhAs.

What can one say about the Immortal MSS Amma, that has not already been said by thousands of people from all walks of life, both the great national leaders like Mahatma Gandhi and Jawaharlal Nehru, as well as by common rasikas who have been captivated by various aspects of her music?
It is said that when Gandhiji heard her sing the Narsi Mehtha bhajan, "Vaishnava janato tene kahiye",( the truly religious are those who have great compassion for the sufferings of the poor), tears welled in his eyes and he was choked with emotion.And on another occasion, when Gandhiji wanted MSS to sing the meera bhajan, "Hari Tum Haro", her husband, the Late and Great Sri Sadasivam, replied that she was not aware of how to sing this bhajan, since she had not learnt it.Gandhiji replied that it was enough for him to hear MSS speak the words of the bhajan, even if she did not know the song.This was indeed a great tribute from the Father of the Nation to the intense bhava, bhakti and emotional spiritualism in her voice.This incident happened in 1948, and later on MSS went on to master this bhajan and made it nationally and internationally famous with her soulful rendition.
It was also a tribute paid by Jawaharlal Nehru, "I am but a mere Prime Minister, who pales into insignificance in the presence of the Queen of Music and Nightingale of India".
What distinguished her music from numerous other vidwans?
Her perfect Sruthi alignment, complete mastery over laya,creativity which combined classical tradition with a high level of innovation, her core of bhakti and bhava-- these were the hallmarks of her music.She had the capacity to both enthrall the hardened music experts and critics, as well as be able to reach out to city commoners and even villagers.
And talk about the great philanthropist that she was!. She gave unstintingly to various social causes like the Kasturba Gandhi Memorial Trust, Ramkrishna Math, Sankar Netralaya, Subramanya Bharathi Trust etc.She earned crores of rupees through her public concerts, but had the golden heart to give it all away to charity and social causes.Even the royalties from her recorded albums went to charities.There can never be another parallel to this kind of munificence in the music world.Of course, she was guided and inspired in this philanthropy by her husband, Kalki Sadasivam, who was totally instrumental in shaping her post-marriage musical career and was himself a great freedom fighter and philanthropist.
Awards and titles came to her without soliciting them, and culminated in her being awarded the Bharat Ratna by the then President, K.R.Narayanan, who personally phoned her to convey the bestowing of the highest honour of the nation on her.She was overcome with emotion on hearing the news, and replied that she was sad that her Late husband was not alive to share the joy of the award, and she accepted the honour in all humility.And this humility was what characterised her personality more than anything else.She was exemplary in her modesty and humility inspite of her unparalleled achievements.
Her passing away in Dec.2004 has left a void in the CM world which can never be filled by others.But the immortal music treasure she has left behind for posterity will make music lovers exclaim even after 1000 years, that such a great soul did walk the face of this planet and left her remarkeable imprints on the sands of time.

That was an old upload i posted , in a hurry.Was it mayamalavagowla really?and it didnt have a ragam thanam-let me check it up again tonight.

anyway i will try to keep posting tracks which I think are rare -in the sense we dont assoiate them with MS immeditaely- or with some other special feature , like the ones below -one where she sings while playing the veena and the other from a radio recital.
Also do keep an eye on the "thematic concerts "thread for some more MS uploads.

http://rapidshare.de/files/16374449/033 ... _Veena.mp3
http://rapidshare.de/files/16375383/177 ... -Manji.mp3

a request to other MS experts on the forum.
I would be doing my best to ensure that uploads here are not commercial releases , but please do alert me if you feel otherwise.
