#1 Finally happened!! TMK begins concert with Mangalam.

Post by shreyas »

I heard that in his concert yesterday in Trivandrum, he began his concert with a Mangalam!

Anyone can provide further details?

It could’ve been a tODayamangalam (toDakattu mangaLam), which is not unheard of.

Anyways Mangalam is just prayer for all good and positive things - what is wrong in praying for that in both start and end

Sachi,
Though your tamizh is so good, your double d for nalladu leads me to double d words like duDDu (money) :)

nalladadu kETTiDavE
duDDum adan kUDavE

viduvAnin viddaiyadu,
eduvAnAlum sevikkuNavu
adanilum, iru munai mangalam
adaRkAnAl, pin enna kuRaiyadil?

Good it is to listen to
There's money in it too
It's the skill of the vidvAn
A treat to the ears it is
With double-ended mangalam,
Even better, it sounds to be!

I will violate mod policy and ask for an audio. I want to see if he managed to successfully make an impact as an opener.

I would love one too (as usual) ; )

Apparently he sang

1. Pavamana
2. Some Kalyani song called Virupakshi (tried searching online but to no avail)
3. Aadu Pambe - Narayana Guru
4. Tunga Teeravirajam - Yamunakalyani - kamalesa vittaladasa

I remember reading somewhere that a famous Western classical piece was by accident played out backwards from a recording and sounded absolutely novel and fantastic. This kind of backward music too should become a new form of Carnatic music. Will share a sample with malice towards none 😀

I'm sure you know what music played in reverse sounds like: just weird.

I read somewhere recently, that the composer of some rock music happened to listen to a practice tape backwards. Never mind the special-effects effect, he thought "Wait a minute! The melody works better like that!" So he rewrote it, back to front, and was pleased with the result.

As a song, rather than a bookend, (the usual) Mangalam deserves better than to be accompaniment to people rushing out of the door. Although it would be mentally confusing, I'd be happy to hear it at some other point in the concert.

In few days one can expect Niraval , Swaram with Pallavi lines and then the Kriti followed by delineation of Raga. If it is
pleasing to ears, can enjoy. This is ' My view '

. To enjoy this reverse video, click on the image above.

This is but a Bollywood medley. Now imagine someone singing Pavamana backwards. Yes. Just go ahead and try it. Just for fun.

karNa kaTUra (painful to the ears) :shock:

TMK's music can be tranquil, vilamba kAla and pleasing. It's the order of the song list with AlApana, neraval and swarAs also thrown in at random which perplexes us. Just wondering: as a child, did he want tayir sAdam before he ate sAmbAr or rasam rice? Forget it. That's a simplistic way to look upon it...

Actually there is no other way to do justice to pavamaana except to sing it at the beginning! :lol: :lol: , unless you are an MDR with 10 or less people in the audience! :D

And a song with unsung passages is a special attraction! Do they carry some unheard of messages? ;)

Virupakshi is a song composed by Swamiji Subbarayan from Andal Kuppam.

Anything which is auspicious
That is, 'mangalam'-needs
Affirmation of it, repetition
Too--what better then, than
To sing it at start and finish? :)

Don't be surprised if he has actually questioned this too and done something about it, or abandoned the South Indian meal format entirely.

He's the most natural left leaning person by temperament I have seen. This characteristic pretty much extends to every facet about him. His iDa nadi is probably very strong. :)

It struck me that three people manage to hog our attention willy nilly:

Hardik Pandya
Shashi Tharoor
T. M. Krishna

When will the first two get the Magsaysay?

The tragedy for me is I don't know if you're joking or he really sang that. The only give away is Madhyamavati. I think he would sing it in Ananda Bhairavi.
