I have been busy for the past few months. I came across this the lec demo on ragas. Looks very interesting to learn especially for a novice like me. But to my disappointment the links are not active any more. Would it be too much to ask for the links to be posted again.

Thanks in advance.

If madurai mani is a diamond standard musician whom I missed to hear as I was not born then, this gold standard madurai GS mani is not very far behind .

Atleast few points that I recollect

# His concerts are really wonderful , he has a deep manly voice which is a rare find , he connects with many rare rAgas and takes that as submain/main. Incidentally I have heard in two occassions where he had taken suddha sArang as submain/main, he sings atleast 30% of his own compositions.

# I heard thru grapevine that lot of ms vishwanAthan- rAmamurthy melody numbers were tuned by madurai gs mani. Incidentally my periappA told me few years back that the movie karnan in thamizh many numbers were tuned by madurai gs mani.

# His explanations on CM-HM are very lucid , extremely well articulated with no ambiguities. Incidentally in our rasikas concert I asked him who is his guru he said that Ishwara pointing to the ceiling, here is a small lecdem part of his concert where he is connecting mAyamAlavagowlai and muslim prayer.

Would love to hear more from any of you about gold standard madurai GS mani

IIRC, in one of his lec-dems, he has identified a particular nAgasvaram vidvAn (the name escapes me) as his 'guru' - in that he used to listen to him play, and with his god-given talent of placing the svarams for any sound that is made, he 'learnt' music. In addition to everything else you've said, he seems to be a very humble man - he never claims credit for his film music - he always said 'we composed this' in his demos!!

Ravi, the nAdaswaram vidwan is venu.It is mentioned in the url that you posted #62 . He is certainly a very humble man, never claims much credit

There's a concert of his with MSG where he sings a beautiful Kalavathi (Nee pada pankajame, his own composition I believe) and a sublime Charukesi, Kripaya palaya. Also, I love his rendition of Kamalambdikula in Brindavana Saranga.

This concert is there in this long post

http://rasikas.org/forum/viewtopic.php? ... te-p2.html

I spent my whole morning to search this thread ,It took me a long time to search as it is there in general discussions instead of kutcheri reviews section.

I am assuming upload links are still active ;)

The rapidshare link says that the file can be downloaded only ten times. Is this a new rule from rapidshare? :-(

shripathi_g,
kamalApta kula a brindavana saranga by thyagarAja is one krithi which I believe was perhaps not in concert circulation say from 1900 to 1950. I have not heard that krithi sung by the perennial big 4 ariyakudi, gnb,mmi and ssi or any of their sishyas , to me these 4 artists have the largest shishya parampara .

However only self taught musicians have taken these kind of krithis and interpreted thyagarAja's krithi in brindavana sAranga which is traditionally a more dikshitar's rAga. I have only heard madurai gs mani and manakkAl rangarAjan's rendition of kamalApta kula krithi , not heard from any artist who are in their era or in the previous golden period era.

Hats off to manakkAl and gsmani .To me it requires a lot of confidence to sing a rare legacy krithi and these kind of experiments can only be done by self taught musicians.

Rajesh,
G.S. Mani is a class act. I had not heard his name until several years ago. Someone said we should hear him, and we went to his MA morning concert that year. I was also told about his film connection. Several filmy looking folks sitting around me did not prepare me for the classical fare that unfolded that morning. What a voice, what energy and delivery! It was that way all through, and in several of his concerts we have been to since. His 'nALai varum enRu nambalAmA?' is one of my favorites. His handling of the rAgAs the names of which I cannot even pronounce, is amazing. You may think it is odd that I put it this way. Listening to him is like going on a fun filled sight-seeing trip of rAgAs and songs you don't normally hear. K and I spent New Year's morning at Petachi for the nAmasnkIrtanam which he was hosting and he sang a few songs too. UmayAlpuram, Udayalur and others took part as well. GSM is a gentleman and is humble. His musical knowledge is vast and rich. His stage manners are becoming. Interesting--must run in the family. I was sitting near his sister (I came to know that when someone who spoke to her told me this). Such a nice lady...
