To all the rasikas of D.K.Pattammal... Most of us would have read 'Carnatic Summer'. It was the era of 78 RPM records. Personally , it was through such records played through radio that we learned about the songs of MS, NCV, DKP , Madurai Mani , GNB. and others. Though there were concerts, most people of that generation living in small rural areas got acquainted with classical music only through these records played in radio . Saregama may not mind if we place all those nice songs of DKP in a website . instead of uploading in youtube. The problem is getting those records. Rasikas may come across either tube uploads or links to audio for the following records. ( not rendered in concerts in later years please). All these were solo records.
---------------------------------------------------------------
song title in tamil first and transliterated title within brackets)
1) மானஸ குரு குஹ- ஆனந்தபைரவி ( Maanasa guruguha roopam . Ananda Bairavi)
2) மாமவ பட்டாபி ராமா -மணிரங்கு ( Maamava Pattabi Rama- Manirangu)
3) சங்கீத ஞானமு -தன்யாசி ( Sangeetha Gnyanamu Bakthi vinaa- Dhanyasi)
4) தணிகை வளர் -தோடி ( Thanikai vaLar saravana bavaa- Thodi)
5) சாமிகி சரி எவரே -( Sri Krushna samiki sari evvarae ..) what is the ragam of this nice song?
6) மாமவ மாதவ தேவ கிருஷ்ணா ( maamava maadhava dheva krushnaa - Neelaambari)
7) பஞ்சாஷட் பீட ரூபிணி - கர்நாடக தேவகாந்தாரி (panchaa shat pee(t)a roopini- Carnataka Devagandhari)
8) எந்தநினே சபரி பாக்கியமு -முகாரி ( entha nine sabari bagyamu -mukari)
9) எனக்குன் இருபதம் நினைக்க ( enakkun irupadham ninaikka varam arulvaay -ragamalika- Ramarajyam film)
10) தொன்று நிகழ்ந்தது அனைத்தும் ( thondru nikazhnthanaitthum unarnthidu -Bairavi, Barathi song)
-----------------------------------
Kindly bear with me for not using the standard transliteration tool ).Pattammal devotees can easily guess
even if they cannot read tamil script. ( I hope)
I am creating a website for D.K.PATTAMMAL songs and will be grateful for help.
If there are no objections, I will give a second and third list . of ten songs each

இவை 1940-களில் இசைத்தட்டுகளாகவும் வெளிவந்தன.
Kalki Sri Krishnamurthy had composed four songs for Smt. Pattamal to sing in concerts - one of which is the famous pUnkuyil kUvum. Are recordings of the other compositions available, by Smt. DKP, especially from the iSataTTugal (gramaphone records) that were realeased in the 1940s?

1934.. DKP was just 16 then. Kalki has reviewed her concert and mentioned her rendering of Munnu Ravana in Todi.with appreciation. .. Thanks to APKoil N Sapthagireesan who contributed the mp3 of the original 78 RPM record, Sri Ramachander site for English transliteration and translation of the Thyagaraja kruthi and Sri.V.Govindan's 'Thyagaraja vaibavam' site for thamizh translation, here we have the reclaimed gem.

Just two days back, I was lucky to get the vintage 78 rpm rendering of Maamava Pattaabhiraamaa' ( manirangu).
by D.K.PATTAMMAL .
I have uploaded it to youtube and also in the site dedicated to DKP songs of those years. ( Dr.Pasupathy;s blog post with advts of that 'plate' in 1945 came in handy. DKP would have been around 27 then!
I took the liberty of using Sri.V.Govindhan's devanagari script of lyrics and meaning of the song. )
https://sites.google.com/site/dkpattamm ... attabirama

https://youtu.be/TctFRF88sxc

May be sharing the Hindolam song on the reverse side of the plate. ( bajare gopalam) in a few days.

On this website the lyricist of the song tIrAda viLaiyATTu piLLai is shown as Krishniah. The song is generally believed to be the work of Subramania Bharati. Is he the one who set it to music?

Sri. Lakshman ji -> 'Theeraadha Vialiyaattu Pillai' is a famous and lovely poem by Subramanya Barathy. D.K.PATTAMMAL made it an immortal song in Vedhala Ulakam film by AVM in 1948. The music director was Sri.Sudharsanam. ( brilliant)
For purists who object to studio orchestration, the background music ( especially in the beginning of the song may be an 'ear-opener') . The song was a ragamalika ( beginning with Sindhubairavi, ...kamaj, shamugapriya and one more. ( it escapes me right now..may be Mand).

privileged to present it here

I learnt number of Bharathiar songs, more than 60 years ago, listening to Mrs. Music (பாட்டம்மாள்). What a clarity of pronunciation! Her songs demonstrate how the accompanists, particularly Mridangam players should play softly. Nowdays mridangam players insist on keeping the speaker volume so high. They ignore Thyagaraja's comment 'sogasugA mridanga tALamu jathagUrchi'. Recently T.M Krishna gave a concert without mridangam. The songs could be heard and enjoyed.

Sri.Lakshman ji, I dont know. why the lyricist is given wrong name.
Such things may be due to generation gap.
For example, NCV classic 'PiLLaip piraayatthile' of Subramanya Barathy is mentioned as by Suddhananda Barathy in the youtube . ( donated by saregama)

Another lovely Subramanya Barathy song . rendered by D.K.PATTAMMAL
'CHINNAN CHIRU KiLiye KaNNamma , selav kaLanjiyame'.
http://freemp3host.com/play:13402
The song was a 78 rpm record. Sri.Lakshman ji may know the likely year of the release. It was not a film song. It begins with Kamaj ragam stanza. The Ragamalika has I remener about 5 ragams. Information will be very useful if available.
------------------------------------சின்னஞ்சிறுகிளியே, கண்ணம்மா செல்வக் களஞ்சியமே! (சின்னஞ்சிறு) என்னைக் கலிதீர்த்தே உலகில் ஏற்றம் புரிய வந்தாய்! (சின்னஞ்சிறு)
பிள்ளைக்கனியமுதே, -கண்ணம்மா! பேசும் பொற்சித்திரமே!
அள்ளியணைத்திடவே-என்முன்னே ஆடிவருந் தேனே (சின்னஞ்சிறு)
ஓடி வருகையிலே- கண்ணம்மா! உள்ளம் குளிருதடீ;
ஆடித்திரிதல் கண்டால் உன்னைப்போய் ஆவி தவிழுதடி
உச்சிதனை முகந்தால் - கருவம் ஓங்கி வளருதடி
மெச்சி யுனை யூரார்- புகழ்ந்தால் மேனி சிலிர்க்குதடீ.
கன்னத்தில் முத்தமிட்டால்-உள்ளந்தான் கள்வெறி கொள்ளுதடீ
உன்னை தழுவிடிலோ- கண்ணம்மா உன்மத்த மாகுதடீ.
உன் கண்ணில் நீர்வழிந்தால்- என்நெஞ்சில் உதிரங் கொட்டுதடி;
என் கண்ணில் பாவையன்றோ? கண்ணம்மா என்னுயிர் நின்னதன்றோ!
என் உயிர் நின்னதன்றோ! என் உயிர் நின்னதன்றோ!
======================================================================
Lakshman ji is requested to give the standard transliteration.
Also kindly let me know if the record is complete.
This is supposedly from an old 78 rpm record.
What ragams are there? I am not sure. Kindly help
.

This poem is about a proud father about his girl child

I found a wonderful presentation of SRI SATHYANARAYANAM by Dhikshithar ( suba panthuvarali) in sujamusic.wordpress.com today. The lyrics in devanagari script( sanskrit original), transliteration ,and translation in English are given there. Very nice. D.K.Pattammal 's rendering ,in my memory and opinion is simply superb. I have lifted the entire thing from the above blog and created a page for this magnificient kruthi and rendering.
