Namaskarams,

I have heard this name from many old time musicians and fans. They are said to be specialists in rendering Krithis, patternising sangathis and introducing lots of unheard krithis in Nagaswaram. They are also the ones to start using Mridangam as accompaniment for Nagaswaram concerts. They are admirers of Ariyakudi kutchery format and gave many concerts in the prevailing formats. Needamangalam Meenakshisundaram Pillai, the most popular tavildhaar during early 20th Century had been their regular accompanist.

Does anyone have any more information about them? Photos? or Recordings?

Coolkarni Sir, Thanks a ton! Listening to Thiruveezhimizhalai Brothers. (A dream come true!) Thavildhaar Raghava Pillai is none other than the great Naachiyaarkoil Raghava Pillai who was a peer to the great Needamangalam Meenakshi Sundaram Pillai.

Bumped into a 5 hour track by Thirumegnanam Nataraja Sundaram Pillay.By the looks of it, it does not look like two disparate tracks fused by technology . Wonder how could they have played like the way they did , for 5 hours !!
If there are volunteers to listen carefully , decode and give me a list of what they have played , I can upload the 275 mb track.
To give you a glimpse , I have clipped a 45 mt part here , with an unusual Viriboni ( to my ears ) and an exotic kapi narayani

Varsha-ji: The Thirumegnanam track was beautiful.
I couldn't help noticing the excellent tavil accompaniment. Do you know who the tavil vidwan was?
