Have now watched this concert sitting in a train, and then at home in Hifi, and soaked up "The Essential TMKrishna".

Perhaps this is the best concert of TMK I have ever heard. And as a Carnatic concert I give it a 9.5/10.
It really helps that the audio and video is exquisite.

And best of all, TMK doesn't want to stop even after the Vote of Thanks and people get up to walk out. He goes on for more than 10 minutes. The last two items.
👋👋👋👋👋👋

PS: can someone please translate the Nee Mattume song for me?

Someone did in the Youtube comments of this video - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VJkrZf-jtZw
Words in brackets are not mentioned in the Tamil Lyrics but they are understood. When a poem is translated to different language, the verbs and nouns are placed according to the Language structure.... I my translation I tried to strictly follow the lyrics structure and come up with words... A good translator may place the words differently

you are the only one stay in my heart
(i) wipe and wipe still (you) do not disappear
(i) rub and rub still (you) do not disappear
(and you) shine light (and you) shine light
you are the only one stay in my heart

(Whether) with eyes open (and I) look
(or) with eyes closed (and I ) sleep
(In my) everyday life, both in reality and in dreams
you are the only one stay in my heart

Sky is full of patterns
The shows of the stars (The lyric says shows of the fish ... But I take it as 'fish on the sky'. There is a word in Tamil for stars as 'vin meankal')
Honey brimming flowers' glorious states
(I) say they are waste and (i) ignore everything
Without any reason, (i) getup and jump
(i) forget myself, hop and fall without rest
(you) Brighten up with your front and back (Your presence is mentioned as front and back) with radiance...
you are the only one stay in my heart

Sounds like a great concert Sachi. Wish I could hear it. Krishna seems all steeped in his music too.
Lovely lyrics! Who wrote them? no mention of that. Would be nice to read the original verse too.

nee mattumE - Kapi - Perumal Murugan.

Tmk has indeed sung beautifully .This tmk kapi remimds me of yesteryear coffee superstar kvn. This first edition recording is great quality i wish more artists who have great stagecraft get this kind of recordings.

Nee Mattumey Yen Nenjil Nirkkiraai
Azhikka Azhikka Azhiyaamal
Tudaikka Tudaikka Maraiyaamal
Oli Veesi Oli Veesi

Vizhi Tirandu Nokkumbodum
Vizhi Moodi Thoongumbodum
Nenavilum Kanavilum Valarndha naal ellam

Vaanengum kolangal meengalin kaatchigal
Then pongum pootkkalil perazhagu maatchigal
Veenendru solliye ellam thallum
Yen endru teriyamal yezhundhaadi thullum
Thannai marandum thaavi vizhundhum oyaamal
Munnum pinnum murugudan oli veesi

------------

In Tamil script (I can't be 100% sure it is correct as I can't read Tamil)

நீ மட்டுமே என் நெஞ்சில் நீ இருக்கிறாய்
அழிக்க அழிக்க அழியாமல் துடைக்க துடைக்க மறையாமல்
ஒளி வீசி ஒளி வீசி
நீ மட்டுமே என் நெஞ்சில் இருக்கிறாய்...

விழித்திருந்து நோக்கும்போதும்
விழிமூடி தூங்கும்போதும்
நனவிலும் கனவிலும் வளர்ந்த நாளெல்லாம்
நீ மட்டுமே என் நெஞ்சில் நீ இருக்கிறாய்

வானெங்கும் கோலங்கள் மீன்களின் காட்சிகள்
தேன் பொங்கும் பூக்களில் பேரழகு மாட்சிகள்
வீணென்ற சொல்லிய எல்லாம் தள்ளும்
ஏனென்று தெரியாமல் எழுந்தாடி துள்ளும்
தன்னை மறந்தும் தாவி விழுந்தும் ஓயாமல்
முன்னும் பின்னும் முருகுடன் ஒளிவீசி
நீ மட்டுமே என் நெஞ்சில் நீ இருக்கிறாய்
அழிக்க அழிக்க அழியாமல் துடைக்க துடைக்க மறையாமல்
ஒளி வீசி ஒளி வீசி
நீ மட்டுமே என் நெஞ்சில் நீ இருக்கிறாய்...

Mridangist Arunprakash is the person who set the tune for the Nee Matume song, btw

Yes, I remember this song from his concert at Vani Kala Kendra Ramanavami last year, when he announced that it was tuned by Arun Prakash.

But this time everything has an extra glitter and finesse. This Kolkata concert will be remembered as a high point in TMK's career for sure.

Have you heard it yet? 😀

Shreyas,
I lead the dunces in dealing with what all you youngsters, including my ten year old grandson do. My tech-abilities are almost nil. I do get help from the family when they are around, but that doesn't adequately cover the immense area of my ignorance :(

1. Go to shaale.com and register.
2. Log in with your registered email ID and registered password.
3. Look for this following picture archived under events and click on it.

Sachi avarE,
nAnEke baDavaLu, nAnEke paradeSi, SrinidhigaLantaha snEhitarirvAga...why am I poor, why am I destitute in the cyberworld, when I have friends like you. You even call yourself a challenged one when we know your strength in technology :)

Thanks also to Shreyas. I want to listen to the concert in one go...

Kanakashaila Viharini is out of the world. Never heard being elaborated this way by anyone except
Musiri. Overflowing Saukhyam.

I find it ironic that a person with the username Purist is appreciating TMKs music... :D

Shreyas, you will discover over time that a true lover of art appreciates a good thing without prejudices.
And this is one concert of TMK I would love to listen to again and again. It has no trace of his "other face".

I opine in the recent past (3 years or so) TMK has taken his singing to a superior level
where 'shravanam and mananam' is made possible. A sublime musical experience, when
who is singing hardly matters. Luckily I am able to switch off 'persona' and just enjoy the music
that is forthcoming... pure for the "purist" :)
The contributions of supporting artists
like Akkarai, RKSK, Hemalatha..(on Violin) and Arun Prakash, Praveen (on Mridangam) who
generally accompany him are exemplary making it a wholesome experience. Accompanying sustained vilamba kalam doesn't come that easy.

Sachi,-you have echoed my feelings.

Stated another way, Sri TMK's music is always the purest of the pure. What may not always be ("pure") is the order or sequence of the various components of the concert. So, if one is unfettered by such constraints, the music can be enjoyed by purists and latitudinarian freethinking liberals alike! ;)

For me, as far as music goes, "the proof of the pudding is in the eating".
And Ravi, this Kkata concert is in a very traditional format in fact!

Somehow the scope for purism disappeared in the "season" environs, but available in "intellectual" Bengal! :lol:
