#54 KJ Jesudas

Post by venkatakailasam » 27 Apr 2011, 07:53

I could not get any other thread regarding Shri Jesudas. If there is one ,this can be merged with that one.
Recently I heard him rendering the song 'UdupiSriKrishna' A fine absorbing rendition.
He follows the words of Sree Narayana Guru, "One caste, one religion and one God for all humanity",
You can hear his songs at my blog:

To me personally a great semi classical musician with one of the best voices .Every musician has a special love for chembai, all the more as KJY was chembai bhagavathar's student.
A recent write up about him in The Hindu

"If music is running in my veins today, I owe it to my guru who is a father-mother-mentor, all rolled into one. But for my austere, affectionate guru Chembai Vaidyanathan, there is no Yesudas - how many of our tamil/kannada/telugu speaking Chennai/Bangalore artists teach pupil from other faith? I like to hear from our respected rasikas.

I understand this was in the late 70s. Not sure of what exactly he sang, but it seems the concert was a carnatic performance.

ANYONE who knows anything about twentieth century Carnatic music knows the POINEERING & VISIONARY CONTRIBUTIONS OF CHEMABAI VAIDYANATHA Bhagavathar. Yesudas a prime disciple of Chembai is a GLOBAL THINKER whose MUSIC as well as PERSON far EXCEEDS the artificial superficial narrow views of so called EXPERTS. Technically his VOICE & MUSIC ARE PERFECT. I can only attribute his not being recognised by the so called great music institutions in Madras to STUPIDITY. I am being BLUNT as there is no other explanation.
Incidentally I am a Tamilian-somewhat proud of it due to Bharathiyar etc- from Madras & reflect I am sure the views of many like me who are frustrated that FOOLISH CRITERIA are being used in Twenty First Century. I request at least others from Tamilnadu to supplement my views on this subject. VKV

Didn't Smt. DKP teach someone from China - a person from a country where the only recognized faith is probably in the party? Didn't the family of Smt. Balasaraswati adopt Mr. Jon Higgins - not just a man of different faith, but an entirely different culture?
There are plently of bharatanATyam dancers from other faiths, and cultures who learned their art from 'tamil'-speaking gurus in Chennai
I am just making these points to say that this direction is not something we should go in. People have preferences, and all humans are flawed and prejudiced. Let's just leave it at that.
Moving on.....

I DON'T THINK WE SHD. MOVE ON. I AGREE THAT THERE ARE PERSONS WHO ARE ABOVE THESE PETTY CRITERIA BUT THERE ARE OTHERS IN SO CALLED AUTHORITY & POWER THAT ARE REAL & EXIST. I ALSO LIKE TO POINT OUT THAT T.VISWANATHAN WAS THE ONLY MUSICIAN WHO AGREED TO TEACH BOB. BROWN WHEN HE WENT TO MADRAS TO WORK ON HIS THESIS & ONE CAN ACTUALLY ARGUE THAT THIS RESULTED IN HOW CARNATIC MUSIC PROGRAMS IN U.S. UNIVERSITIES HISTORICALLY PROCEEDED FROM THEN ON.
MY MAIN THRUST HAS TO DO WITH YESUDAS & HIS CAPABILITIES AS A MUSICIAN. WHY HE IS NOT BEING RECOGNISEDTO THE EXTENT HE SHOULD BE? IN THIS AGE WE SHOULD BE HONEST, DISCUSS & FIGHT IT. VKV

Let right thinking people honestly discuss why KJY is not being recognized? I am with cacm on that.

I cast my vote with VKV.
Also I suggest that Cleveland Festval should invite him and confer the highest honour on him which will be a wake up call for the prejudiced CM authorities at Chennai...

THERE ARE SEVERAL CONCRETE WAYS REG. MADRAS SABHAS:
FIRST & FOREMOST IS TO START A SYSTEMATIC CAMPAIGN WRITING SABHA OFFICIALS IN MADRAS.
THIS CAN TAKE VARIOUS FORMS.
I can attest to at least TWO CASES- DON'T ASK ME TO NAME THE CASES:THEY ARE WITHIN LAST 5 YEARS- that I am aware of that produced successful outcomes. Writing in Rasikas & venting our frustrations is not going to do it. VKV

VKR
VKV feels that the Forum is not the route to bring awareness.
I am not so sure!
But even if we start a compaign here there will be very little support!
KJY has already Two strikes against him:
one Christian and the other MalayaLi!
(and perhaps a third one too - he is a Keralite!)
