Prince Rama Varma sings and teaches the Nottu swarams of MD. I understand that these were composed based on the playing of the songs in English and probably in other european languages, by the brass bands of East India Company. I would like to get links for the Nottuswarams and corresponding English songs, preferably vocal.

There are some other songs too, but here is a small playlist that contains quite a few of these Nottuswarams.

I did not even see a single concert schedule of Prince Rama Varma in chennai. I am sure he had few pockets of sabhas which gives chance. What is happening to this vidwan for this year season -sweetsong?
