It was nice to see Chembai, GNB in a video clipping. Was wondering if ARI and MVI were also video taped while in a concert.
hope we get to see them in action through some benefactor.

We could approach the Madras Music Academy (if somebody has the "guts" :P). There may be some video recording of ARI, MVI and MMI.

The problem with all these websites is they never get updated. Once would expect newer audio clips to be added, or some videos. It could be that the creators do not get the time to keep revisiting and adding content. But the site started with a big bang and got me all excited, and then kinda tapered off and became dormant with no activity. Raghu Sir is a scarce commodity when it comes to digital listening !!!.

Ignoramus, yes it is a commercial release. But somehow, I felt it was not the maestros at their best. Probably, when lgj's style was seeking a different kind of laya support. lgj-krm seems to be the dream combination. There is another concert of lgj with PR and GH - starts with asAvEri varNam and has EtAvunnarA - kalyANi.

Hi Inconsequential

Thanks, will search that out. Do you know the recording company by any chance? I am yet to hear any of the LGJ-KRM combos, will look forward to it. I do have some old LGJ PMI combo clips, they too look good I feel.

I will look at the tape and let you know. Forgotten. It is a 3-tape release

When you listen to them, you will know what you have been missing. There are any no: of tapes in the stores. There was a series of (4 or 5) tapes of lgj's with KRM and THV. One of them having simhEndramadhyamam rtp. There is another tape with only a nATTaikkurinji rtp.

If you have DTH or if you can listen to AIR Ragam channel, they play some old collections. Few days back I heard Shri.Palghat Raghu's Thani (exclusive not with any vocal). It was in Rupaka thala and was wonderful.

Thanks. It has been a good experience to me. As I need to work and earn a living I will not be having time. All faults may kindly be pardoned. Yeah, I am leaving.

May the Almighty bless you all.

A detailed article on Sri Raghu is available at http://www.vijayalakshmysubramaniam.com ... traghu.htm
I think this appeared in Sruti and is written by Dr Vijayalakshmi Subramaniam.

Another great loss of mridangam maestro and great vidwan, who represented the past generation and was known for training current generation mridangam vidwans. An unassuming vidwan for all his years of service. He will always be remembered for his style, his gentle strokes, that tocuhed many souls. He was an ideal accompanist and every senior musician that I know had high regards for him. May his soul rest in peace. May his teachings and his style will live for ever.
